    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the WhatsApp application.
    There is a WhatsApp icon, which is a green speech bubble with a white telephone inside, and underneath it says "WhatsApp". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder.

    We want to find the option at the bottom labeled "Show all contacts".
    Underneath it says, "Enable to also use hidden contacts". This option is currently activated, indicated by the green box with the white check mark inside. That means that if we have any contacts hidden on our HTC One M8, WhatsApp can see import them into the application.
