QR Code WhatsApp: learn how to change yours

by Team AllYourVideogames | Jul 30, 2022 | WhatsApp |


In this post, we will teach you how to find and share your QR Code on WhatsApp Business. The resource can also be used in the personal account. If your code has been shared improperly, you can change it.



The QR code allows quick contact in the app. When you access it, your number is automatically made available, making it easier to send messages.

Once created, the WhatsApp QR Code is unique and works like the fingerprint of your messenger account. The change is only possible at the request of the owner of the telephone number or by deleting the account.

If changed, the previous code is canceled and will no longer work, and only the new version will be valid.

Step 4. When viewing your Whatsapp QR Code, click the sandwich button again in the upper right corner;

Step 6. Confirm the request by clicking the button Reset.


The path for resetting the QR code is similar for both WhatsApp Business and personal accounts. It is important to remember that your QR Code does not expire unless you request the reset process.


Share your QR Code only with your security contacts

It is important that you know that nothing prevents your code from being passed on to other people by your contacts. Thinking about it, and about possible inconvenience, WhatsApp released this feature for the security of your account.

For commercial accounts, it is possible to share the image on packaging, websites, shop windows and others, in order to publicize and facilitate contact with customers. If you do this, it is best to avoid resetting your code as the old one will be disabled.

And are you already using your QR code on WhatsApp?
