This feature is going to join whatsapp soon
WhatsApp users do not know that using click to chat, their number is coming in the Google search index, which is risky and at the same time it will increase the risk of getting spam calls.

In a conversation with Threatpost, the security researcher has described it as a case of leaks. At the same time, Facebook and WhatsApp say that this is not a big deal. The Google search result is the same that the users themselves have selected to make it public. However, it does not matter whether it is some kind of leak or something, but what is important is that WhatsApp users do not know. By using click to chat, their number is coming in Google search index, which is risky and at the same time it will increase the risk of getting spam calls.
Save yourself like this
So if you also fear that your number may not even come up on Google, then one way to avoid it is that you do not use the click to chat feature. Apart from this, if you have already used it, then you will have to manually delete it. For this, you will have to delete any click to chat link from the public accessible website itself.
