Does your phone still have WhatsApp? There are ways to get around this on a tablet and a computer. WhatsApp Web syncs with the app on your phone so you can send and receive WhatsApp messages from your computer. Any action you take on your phone will also happen on your computer, and the same is true for your computer. WhatsApp can be used both on your phone and on your computer.

There are two ways to use WhatsApp on your computer:


  • You can download an app that is called WhatsApp Desktop.
  • WhatsApp Web is a version of WhatsApp that works in a browser.

  • On an iPhone, open WhatsApp, tap the settings icon in the bottom left corner, and choose WhatsApp web/desktop.
  • You'll be asked to use the camera on your phone to scan the QR code that you can see in the web browser on your computer.

  • You can choose this option on your phone by going back to the WhatsApp Web menu and selecting "Log out from all devices."
  • To log out from your PC, tap the three dots icon at the top of the conversation thread and then choose Log out.
