WA Web

WA Web is the online version of WhatsApp. Basically, it works as a "repeater" of the app installed on the smartphone. It follows that to use this tool it is not necessary to create a specific account: the one already configured on the phone is used. And of course it is also free: the only costs are those relating to the consumption of data traffic if the smartphone is connected to the Internet via a data network and not WiFi.

Here are the only requirements that WA Web requires to work: the smartphone on which the app is installed must be turned on and connected to the Internet. It does not need to be near the PC or connected to the same WiFi network. That said, now let's see how to access the service. Here are the steps to take:

  • start the browser and connect to the address web.whatsapp.com;
  • start the WhatsApp app, press the button (â ‹®) and then on WhatsApp Web if you use Android, while if you use an iPhone tap on" Settings "at the bottom right and press on the WhatsApp Web entry;
  • scan the QR code on the PC screen

Within seconds, you should see your messages in the browser.

WA Web App

Besides WA Web, there are other apps that allow you to use the messaging app on your PC. Their drawback, however, is that to be used you need to link your WhatsApp account to third-party apps (they are exactly that). Result: a privacy risk.

That said, the most recommended app on Android is Whats Web for WhatsApp, and you can download it from the Play Store. Its use is completely free, but with a one-off € 2,09 you can remove the annoying banner ads. On the iPad, however, we recommend using another app, that is Dual Messenger for WhatsApp WA, downloadable from the App Store.

Hence, these are the main solutions to use WA Web app. Although from our point of view it doesn't make much sense to use such a service, since it seriously endangers your privacy.

WA Web Plus

In this article we also talk about WA Web Plus. This is an extension that adds other tools and options to WhatsApp Web (see also WhatsApp Web does not open. How to fix), for greater privacy and reliability. It therefore brings a whole series of missing functions to WhatsApp Web, for personal and business use.

Not only that: there is also the possibility to customize some actions, such as sending likes, displaying the status of the contact along with his name, indicating online contacts, customizing background images, dark mode in low light conditions. etc.
