How to Delete a WhatsApp Contact

This guide explains how to delete WhatsApp contacts on Android and iPhone.

In this guide, I have used Android and iPhone to teach you how to delete any contact on WhatsApp.

Note: Deleting a contact from WhatsApp will also be removed them from the contact list of a mobile device. Just like deleting a contact from the contact list of a mobile device will also get deleted from WhatsApp. But when you delete a contact, the chat history won’t be deleted.
