Today I think everyone knows how to access WhatsApp Web, it's basically a way to use the application on the PC. The problem is that if another person in our environment has physical access to our terminal, he could spy on our conversations. Honestly, while this issue is being fixed, I think it's a security error in WhatsApp quite serious, since if your partner has access to your smartphone he can easily read our conversations and this… it's a crime. But don't worry in the Green Android we explain to you how to know if someone is spying on you on whatsapp.



Steps to make your WhatsApp account more secure

To know if we are spied on, we have to enter WhatsApp top right and click on 3 vertical points. We will see 2 details:

  1. If we have a desktop icon, abbiamo started a WhatsApp web session.
  2. Let's go into WhatsApp Web to find out what's going on.

This is where we will check if we have one active session on WhatsApp Web. This is where we have to "Close all sessions".

We will be asked if we want to log out of all devices, of course we will click on «Close session».

And the other person non will more spy on us on whatsapp, from now on we have to prevent other people from having direct access to our device to make sure that no one starts an account on WhatsApp Web without our permission.
