If you have a list of phone numbers to which you would like to send a Whatsapp message, the first thing you should do is to check the validity of the numbers.
The presence of “non-Whatsapp” phone numbers in your list could compromise your Whatsapp Marketing campaign and even cause the blocking of your account.
How to filter whatsapp numbers and understand which are valid Whatsapp numbers and which are not?
WhatBot Plus has a powerful Whatsapp Number Filter feature. Here are the steps to follow to do this in a few minutes (even if you have lists of thousands of numbers to check)
How to Check of Whatsapp and non-Whatsapp Numbers
Step 1. Download and install WhatBot Plus on your Windows PC. All Windows OS are supported.

It will open this new window:
Import your contacts (phone numbers) clicking on FILES (to import from csv or excel file). Or you can click on MANUAL to manually enter the phone numbers to check.
With the free trial version only “Manual” importing is enabled.

At the end of the check you will be ale to click on EXPORT button to save valid phone numbers (or all numbers) on your PC into a csv or excel file.
