    How to make executable & linkable file with phone numbers.


    I have seen people sending executable & linkable file with phone numbers in Whatapp which after clicking automatically ask us to add to contacts. How these files are created and what is the software name?
    Please help.
    Thanks

    I haven't used WhatsApp, however I think what you're probably referring to are vCard files, which have been around a long time in email clients/PIM's such as Office Outlook, Mozilla Thunderbird, etc.

    VCard files aren't supposed to be executable (just the WhatsApp ones until recently...)

    I know about vcf files. When you click vcf files' a second window will open to ask you to add to contacts and the third window will ask you where to add your contacts like gmail,or any other address book. May be in Whatsapp the files attached sometimes are vcf only.
