    Let's choose a chat
    .
    We're going to choose Terry. Press down on it to enter the chat. We want to demonstrate how to send a contacts info card in a WhatsApp chat. This is very useful if we want to send our friends phone number or email address to another friend. Instead of having to write it down or copy it, we can just send the contact card with all of their information to our friend.

    To send a contacts information, tap on the wanted contact
    .
    We'll notice that we're in the phonebook of the HTC One M8. We're taking information from there and not the WhatsApp application. In this example, we'll see the contacts mobile number, home number, and email address. There is a check box next to each one of these options, so we don't have to send all of the contacts information, we can choose what we send.

    To unselect a phone number or email address, tap on the check box until the box is empty
    .
    This means that we won't send this phone number or email address. If we only want to send one phone number or email, we can.

Questions and Answers

When a contact information is sent to a group on WhatsApp, do the group members see all your previous texts, videos and media?

I sent my contact card to a WhatsApp group which I am already a member of, underneath I saw message on the left and add contact on the right after it has been sent to the group, I click on message and I saw all my private files, as my contact card was sent, is it possible that all group members will see my private chats and media?. I have tried: Google. I think it was caused by: I just want to know what information is seen by group members when a contact is shared
