What are the benefits of another number for home workers?

More home workers than ever are using messaging services like WhatsApp to communicate with their colleagues, but it can be hard to stay on top of incoming work tasks if they’re muddled up with your private messages.

Plus, it can be difficult to switch off and enjoy your off-work hours if you have a boss who loves to send messages at 9pm (even if they don’t expect you to respond then!). Over time, this lack of boundaries between work and home can really take a toll on your mental health.

Already convinced that you need to set up WhatsApp Business? If you already use WhatsApp Messenger to chat to your friends and family, you’ll need a second UK number to set up WhatsApp Business on the same mobile.

Don’t shell out for that second handset – we’ve got you. Simply download the WhatsApp Business App for free and sign up using your new, unique number provided by YourBusinessNumber.

I don’t own a business – is this service for me?

Absolutely! It is likely that you receive emails and calls before 9am and after 5pm, right?

Recent reports suggest that out-of-hours emails are on the rise*, and that trend may only increase. YourBusinessNumber allows you to wrestle that control back into your own hands by setting your work hours on your new number. Along with many other features, YourBusinessNumber will simplify and enhance your working from home experience in the palm of your hands.

Create another ‘work-only’ space

In recent times, more and more people have been creating separate work spaces in their homes to enable them to switch off the outside noise and have a working environment they can utilise. So why can’t you do the same with your phone?

Well, now you can with YourBusinessNumber. Separate out your social and work life even more by creating a ‘work-only’ space inside your phone and your home. Many users of YBN see a new number as another way of decluttering their lifestyle. Working from home is hard enough. It’s time to make life easier for yourself.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I only use YBN for WhatsApp Business?

We currently support customers looking for a virtual number to get themselves verified on WhatsApp Business. Get your virtual number here.

Why do I need a second number for WhatsApp Business?

You need a second number for WhatsApp Business as you are not permitted to use the same number as your regular WhatsApp account. This would mean buying another phone with an extra monthly contract or pay as you go SIM. With YBN you can get that number to run your business through WhatsApp Business without having to buy a second phone and for a considerably cheaper price than another contract.

Can I use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on same number?

No, it’s not possible to use WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone. You can only use one number per account.

Can I use my YBN number for normal calls / texts?

YBN virtual numbers can only be used in messaging apps. The number attached to your SIM card is for normal calls and SMS messages. If someone places a normal call to your YBN virtual number, it gets forwarded to the SIM card mobile number you signed up with free of charge.

Is an eSIM the same as this product?

No. An eSIM is an embedded chip inside your phone that acts exactly like a traditional SIM card, removing the need for swapping SIM cards if you move networks. You can have more than one plan from different networks on an eSIM, but the drawback with this is that you can only use one network at a time. With a number from YBN, you don’t have the issue of using one at a time - you can use your business number in tandem with your personal number, whilst still being able to separate it out.

Can I have both WhatsApp and WhatsApp business?

Yes, you can install both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business but you need a different number for each messaging app. YourBusinessNumber gives you a second virtual UK mobile number that allows you to use both WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business on the same phone.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription by clicking here. If you cancel your subscription your YBN number will be terminated.
