Frequently Asked Questions

Is WhatsApp for Desktop safe?

Yes, similar to the mobile app, all conversations on WhatsApp for Desktop are secured with end-to-end encryption. This means that no one can read the messages other than the person or people you’re contacting.

Can I sync my iPhone to a Windows desktop?

WhatsApp for Desktop works across all major platforms. It doesn’t matter if you have the mobile app on your iPhone and the desktop app for Windows, as long as you can scan the QR code it will work. The same is true going from an Android to a Mac.

Can I use WhatsApp for Desktop without downloading the mobile app?

There is no standalone desktop app for WhatsApp. It will only work if you already have the mobile app installed and active.

Can I send a WhatsApp to myself, from the desktop to the phone?

Unfortunately, there is no way to send yourself a direct message. What you can do, is create a group where you are the only member. This is a pretty easy workaround and will allow you to send yourself messages.

Does my phone have to be on in order to receive messages on my desktop?

Your phone must be on and connected to the internet to receive messages. Otherwise, the two devices will not be able to communicate.

Can I log in to multiple computers at the same time?

You can only have one device logged in at a time. Before you can scan your QR code you will have to log out of any other computers (WhatsApp will log you out, you don’t need to actually have the computer with you) and then you can scan the code.

I forgot to log out when using a computer. Can I log out remotely?

Yes. Open WhatsApp on your phone and click on the Menu Button > WhatsApp Web > Log out from all devices.
