How to add a person on WhatsApp other without their mobile number?

I am aware that WhatsApp uses mobile numbers to register accounts, but is there an alternative option to add a person?

Is there an account number ( after registration ) which can be shared with friends to add on WhatsApp? If yes , how?

    Just open the WhatsApp application on your phone and tap "Contacts" then tap the "+" sign.

    Bear in mind that WhatsApp uses exclusively mobile numbers in order to find users. This means that if you add a contact to WhatsApp without a mobile number, you will not be able to contact this person via WhatsApp.

    This makes adding contacts without mobile numbers in WhatsApp useless.
