Does your phone call log look like a spam folder?

If you feel frustrated, you will get a sense of satisfaction as there are a lot of iPhone users who feel the same about the integrated call logs feature.

Here, we will be discussing the possible ways to get rid of the frustration.

Why are WhatsApp calls showing on phone log

WhatsApp calls show in the phone log because they are treated as regular phone calls by the operating system of your iPhone. The feature is named integrated call logs and shows calls from all the supporting apps on a single screen.

When you make a call using WhatsApp, it uses the internet connection to establish the call, but the phone’s operating system still recognizes it as a regular phone call and logs it in the call history. This is true for both incoming and outgoing WhatsApp calls.

How to stop WhatsApp calls showing on call log (iPhone)

You cannot really stop WhatsApp calls from showing in the iPhone call log, but there are a few options you can try:

1. Manually delete WhatsApp calls from the call log

After each WhatsApp call, you can open the Phone app and delete the call from the call log.

2. Use a third-party app

There are a few apps available on the App Store that can help you hide WhatsApp calls from the call log. These apps typically work by creating a separate call log for WhatsApp calls, which is not visible in the regular call log. However, please be careful when downloading third-party apps as they may not be secure or reliable and may compromise your device’s security.

3. Turn off WhatsApp call notifications

You can turn off call notifications for WhatsApp in the app’s settings. To do this, open WhatsApp, go to the “Settings” menu, tap on “Notifications,” and toggle off the switch for “Calls.” This will prevent WhatsApp calls from appearing as notifications on your lock screen, but they will still appear in the call log.

4. Use WhatsApp’s built-in call log feature

Instead of using the phone’s call log, you can use WhatsApp’s built-in call log feature. This feature is found in WhatsApp’s call tab and keeps track of your WhatsApp calls without saving them to the phone’s call log.

5. Use a different phone app

You can use a different phone app on your iPhone instead of the default Phone app that comes with the device. There are a number of third-party phone apps available on the App Store that you can download and use as an alternative to the default Phone app. Some of these apps may have additional features or customization options that are not available in the default app.

Please note that changing the default phone app will only change the app that you use to make and receive calls, not the call log. So the calls will still be saved on the phone’s call log and you can still see them using the default phone app.

How to remove WhatsApp calls from iPhone call log

To remove WhatsApp calls from iPhone call log, you have to open the Phone app and tap on the “Recents” tab. Locate the call you want to delete, then swipe left on it and tap on the “Delete” button.

You can clear the entire call history as well. Go to the Phone app, tap on the “Recents” tab, and then tap on the “Clear” button at the top of the screen. This will remove all calls from the call log.


iPhone shows all the call logs in a single list. This can be frustrating for many, but now you know there is no possible option to disable integrated calls on iPhone.
