My contacts keep merging/mixing with other contacts.

for example I have one contact named dad and another name mum after I save the numbers after a few minutes for some reason my mum number is saved under my dad's information but also saved under my mum as well.

when I click edit on my dad's contact information it shows my dad's contact number but when I swipe to see the app that are linked(eg. Whatdapp,viber etc) i go on the WhatsApp tab and i see mum's number is linked to my dad's contact information. But it won't let me delete the entry, theres not even an option. 

I contact whatsapp but they said it got nothing to do with them. 

I deleted all contacts and entered the number all over again. But still happens. But not to a specific contact. To various ones. 

And also its not just for whatsapp its for viber aswell. It seems to radomely merge numbers. But when i look on whatsapp itself the contacts are all fine. Its just the contacts app on the phone that somehow merge random contact together. 


Help please?

To me this sounds like your phone is syncing with various sources. 


Launch your Contacts App and press the 3 little dots in top Rh corner. Look at the Manage Contacts and the options in there and any relevant settings too.
