How to close all open sessions on WhatsApp Web

25 mayo, 2021

At the moment, you can only use your WhatsApp account on a mobile, although nothing prevents you use the web version or the app on multiple devices to check your messages, as long as your mobile is active and connected to the Internet.

For convenience, WhatsApp remembers the devices on which you have used WhatsApp Web or the PC version, so you don’t have to re-scan the QR code every time. If you forget to log out of one of them, you can always close all open sessions on WhatsApp Web, from the WhatsApp application.

Keep Unless you uncheck the box, WhatsApp remembers all open sessions

To log in to WhatsApp web or the application for Windows or Mac you must scan a QR code. On the same screen where this QR code is displayed, there is a box that indicates that the logged in session will be kept.

The good news is that the next time you want to use WhatsApp Web or the Mac or Windows application, you will not have to scan the code again, but it will work directly. The bad is that the session will remain open, so that if someone uses that PC later and enters the WhatsApp Web, they will be able to control your WhatsApp.

Remember that if you later want to use WhatsApp on that PC again, the process will be as easy as rescanning the QR code on duty.

  • In WhatsApp, go to the chats tab

  • Press the menu button and enter WhatsApp Web
