Got questions?

Why do my contacts show up multiple times?

If you see the same contact appear more than once, you may have more than one phone number saved for them.

  1. In your phone settings, tap Apps
  2. Tap Waze
  3. Tap Permissions
  4. Under "Allowed", tap Contacts
  5. Tap "Don't Allow"

Note: Steps may vary by device.
