Nowadays everyone wants to peep into the privacy of other people. For some, It’s a fun thing to do and for some, It’s a necessity. Having said that, we all know that the WhatsApp is the widely used and most popular Instant messenger among people of all age group, be it a 12 years old kid or 32 years old playboy.
Note: This tutorial is for informational and education purposes only as I believe that ethical hacking, security tricks, and cyber security should be acquainted subjects to anyone using smartphones and computers.
Coming to the point; We all are aware of the fact that how intense the WhatsApp account is becoming for everyone out there because that’s where your child plans outings with his/her friends and your partner maintain an illicit relationship. Hope you got the point.
Now let’s discuss something about hacking or spying aspect; Recently, I searched the web for terms like ‘How to hack WhatsApp account’, ‘How to spy on WhatsApp Messages’, etc. But the result I got for all those terms were pretty disheartening or had no valid solution.
But after reading all those nonsense blogs, I learned one thing pretty well and that is; you cannot be able to hack or spy on other’s WhatsApp account or messages at any cost unless you’ve accessed to their phone (target phone) for at least 30 seconds.
Now that you know the limitations well, here I’ll tell you an ethical method to spy on your children, friends, or partners’ WhatsApp account.
And the great part is that you don’t need to install those annoying terminal emulator, paid spying apps, or rooting apps while performing this process.
Remember, this method is all about timing game.
Step 1: Open any browser (prefer default internet browser) of your mobile phone and Request for ‘Desktop Site‘ by clicking on three vertical dots (More) at top right corner.
Step 2: Now simply visit http://web.whatsapp.com from that opened browser on your mobile. You’ll see a QR Code, keep that tab open.
Keep in mind, well begun is half done. So you have already accomplished 50% of your mission.
Step 3: Here comes the daring part, see as I’ve mentioned this above; you need to access the target phone to which you want to spy those WhatsApp messages, chats, conversations, etc. for at least 10 seconds.
Step 4: Let’s assume, you’ve accessed to that target phone > simply open the WhatsApp > click on three vertical dots at the top right corner > then click on ‘WhatsApp Web‘.
Step 5: Now simply scan the QR Code (on your phone’s browser) from victim’s WhatsApp account. And It’s done.
Hurray Mission accomplished. Now you can view all those chats, conversations, group messages, photos, audio files of victim’s WhatsApp account. Note: You can perform the same procedure on your PC or Mac.
Sounds easy right, but easy things always come with limitations; though you can completely access other’s WhatsApp account but you can use this feature only when the victim’s smartphone is accessed to any sort of internet connection.
Don’t worry you can close that tab of your phone’s browser whenever you want and access at any time by visiting web.whatsapp.com again using the desktop version. But never click on ‘Logout‘ if it unable to connect victim’s phone as sometimes you won’t be able to connect as it requires the target device is to be connected to the internet for this function to work, and it simply shows two options; either click on ‘Logout’ or ‘retry to connect’.
- It’s simple to use
- No brain game
- No need to install annoying and worthless apps
- You can literally access every element of target’s WhatsApp account and even use them
- Only accessible if your victim’s phone is running the internet on it.
- It may not work for long if the victim knows about basic WhatsApp security features. He or she can easily go to settings (of WhatsApp account) and can click ‘log out of all devices’. This will put a full stop to all your spying activities.
- In case, your victim has ever reinstalled and reverified the WhatsApp on his/her device. Then your WhastApp web session will be destroyed.
