Check your internet connection
Make sure that your device is connected to the internet, either through Wi-Fi or mobile data. A stable internet connection is essential for WhatsApp to work. If your connection is weak or unstable, try switching to a different network or resetting your Wi-Fi router.
Verify your phone number
WhatsApp uses your phone number as your unique identifier. Make sure you have entered the correct phone number associated with your WhatsApp account. Also, check the country code and the number itself. If you recently changed your phone number, you will need to update it in WhatsApp settings.
– Clear cache
– Go to your phone’s Settings.
– Find and select “Apps” or “Applications.”
– Locate WhatsApp in the list of apps and tap on it.
– Tap on “Storage.”
– Then, tap “Clear data” and “Clear cache.”
– Restart your phone and try logging in again.
Check if your phone has active SMS service
If your phone is unable to send or receive SMS, then you won’t be able to receive OTP. You can either get it enabled or switch to call-based verification option.
– Uninstall WhatsApp from your device
– Reinstall it from your device’s app store (Google Play Store for Android or the App Store for iOS).
– Open WhatsApp and follow the setup process, including verifying your phone number.
If none of these steps work, it’s a good idea to contact WhatsApp support for further assistance. They can help you recover your account or troubleshoot any technical issues that may be causing the login problem. Remember to have your phone number and other account details ready when you contact them.
