Today, WhatsApp continues to be one of the most used messaging applications on our smartphones since it allows us to be in touch with our friends and family via text messages, calls or even video conferences. The only problem is that many users report problems with this messaging client, why it stops or when WhatsApp closes by itself. That is why today in The Power Of The Green Android we are going to give you a series of tips with which to proceed in these cases to try to solve these incidents as soon as possible.



Why does it close when I open WhatsApp? 2022

For sure it is not known why sometimes WhatsApp does not open or it doesn't work. However, the origin of this problem as a general rule is usually due to the following reasons:

  • The application needs to be updated.
  • Need to update Webview of Android system.
  • You have problems with the application cache.

Next we will give you a number of very basic tips that you should follow just in case WhatsApp opens and closes by itself.

Reboot the device

Whenever an app gives you problems, the first thing to do is restart your phone. Yes, it may be a bit of a simple fix, but you can't imagine the number of problems that a simple restart fixes. If after restart when open WhatsApp closes again, go to the next tip.

Update WhatsApp to the latest version

Always keep the application updated to the latest version available on the Play Store. You can check if you have the latest version of WhatsApp by following these steps:


  • Go to Play Store > My Apps & Games > Updates.

Update WebView to the latest version

In some cases, not having the component Webview updated to the latest version  can cause  arrest of some apps like TikTok, Brawl Stars or Gmail. To update it, I recommend you follow the instructions in these 2 tutorials:


  • The Google application has stopped working.
  • MSA is still not working.

WhatsApp closes by itself How can I fix it? 2022

If after all of the above, again when i log in whatsapp closes, it is very likely that it is due to cache problems, so we will have no choice but to delete it. To do this, the first step you need to take is to enter the "Settings" of the phone.

Here we will enter «Applications».

We seek "Whatsapp" and once identified we enter.

In this section we enter «Storage».


Here we need to do the following:

  1. Empty the cache.
  2. Clear application data.

When we delete WhatsApp data, we will be told that everything will be lost, don't worry, it's a generic message, the only thing you will lose are your conversations, so it would be advisable to make a backup copy of WhatsApp. This basically what it does is leave the application as we had it from the factory eliminating any problem we may have, so all we have to do is register again with our phone number and activate WhatsApp with the verification code and play it's done.


Now you know what to do if I enter WhatsApp and it closes, however if you have a problem you can always formulate it below in the comments and I will try to respond as soon as possible.
