+230 Country Code WhatsApp

Which Country Code is 230 in WhatsApp?

The Country Code +230 in Whatsapp refers to a phone number in Mauritius.

This means that any message or call received on WhatsApp from a phone number that starts with the Area Code +230 will be from a Mauritius phone number.

All WhatsApp messages with Area Code +230 are from Mauritius?

If we receive a call or if we receive WhatsApp messages from a phone number that starts with an Country Code +230, this contact will have as origin a number of a SIM card originating from Mauritius.

This does not mean that if we receive a WhatsApp message with this prefix it must be located in Mauritius, but simply means that the SIM card is from this country. That is, a user can send or receive messages with a Mauritius Area Code (+230) but being located in a different country.

Therefore, one should be careful if receiving messages from an unknown number with +230 Area Codes, as it could be a WhatsApp spam. Therefore if you do not know anyone from that country of origin, it is recommended that you do not respond and block that contact in the application.
