Can I edit my display name, picture, and description on WhatsApp?

Your WhatsApp profile is your company's virtual shop window as it is the first thing your recipients see when you send them a WhatsApp campaign. 

Your WhatsApp profile is accessible from the WhatsApp application and can be seen by your recipients. It allows them to recognize your brand by providing information about your company, such as its name, address, and contact details.

Here's what a professional profile looks like on the WhatsApp application and what information you can display ➡️
