How to Keep Empty Whatsapp Name (Blank Whatsapp Name)

Whatsapp Blank Name: Although WhatsApp is among the most-used social media platforms today, in comparison to other platforms like Instagram and Snapchat, it has a relatively straightforward user interface. And if you think about it, it also makes sense since the main purpose behind WhatsApp was to enable smooth conversations between people. In other words, messaging was always the central feature of this platform.

How to Keep Empty Whatsapp Name (Blank Whatsapp Name)

Although WhatsApp doesn’t ideally allow its user to keep their name section empty, there are two simple tricks that can help you do it.

Let’s take a look at both of them below:

Method 1: Whatsapp Blank Name Symbol (Copy & Paste)

  • The first thing you need to do is copy the following two symbols: ⇨ ຸ
  • Open the Whatsapp app on your phone.
  • Tap on the three dots icon at the top and select the Settings option.

Now, I know what you might be thinking. Is this weird symbol going to be your name? Well, that’s the fun part. When you save the (ຸ) as your name, after you save it, it’ll disappear, showing a blank space instead. Wasn’t that interesting?

The second trick is quite similar to the first one; only here, instead of the characters, you have to copy this: (⠀)

Now, it might look like there’s just a blank space between the brackets, but there isn’t. Just trust me and copy it. Done? Now follow the same steps that we did in the last trick to reach your name section. Click on the pencil, backspace your name, and paste (⠀) there. Now, you can hit save and marvel at how WhatsApp allows you to keep an empty name. Enjoy your blank space!
