How to delete contacts in WhatsApp for Windows 10 Mobile

Maybe you didn't really hit it off as well as you thought. Maybe that guy you met in the street recreates movie scenes with taxidermy mice. You probably want to get rid of this person from your phone and your life.

Luckily, WhatsApp doesn't make you keep every contact you acquire. Here's how to exorcise your WhatsApp of unholy weirdos (or, you know, regular people you just don't want to talk to anymore).

  1. Launch WhatsApp from the Start screen or from All apps.
  2. Swipe left to favorites.
  3. Tap and hold the contact you want to delete.
  4. Tap delete.

    Swipe to favorites, tap and hold a contact, tap delete

That's it. It's that easy. Make sure you really want to delete the contact from WhatsApp because it doesn't respond with an "are you sure?" It just deletes the contact. It won't delete them from your phone entirely, just from WhatsApp, so you can still add them again if you so desire.
