1. Replace your Sim with your disposable pay-as-you-go Sim.
2. Open the WhatsApp messaging app and register the disposable pay-as-you-go Sim.
3. Remove the disposable sim and put your original sim back in.
4. Start using WhatsApp.
This is great for use with apps such as Tinder. You have your privacy protected and only those who you give your WhatsApp number to can contact you. And just to make it clear you’re not replacing your own Sim, you’re only activating the app then discarding the Sim!
