Not Able to Use Web.whatsapp? Facing Errors and Issues?

Don't Worry, Here is a Solution....

WhatsApp Web not working: How to fix?

  • You could be having phone connection problems because of which WhatsApp Web might not work on your computer. To fix this, make sure that your phone always has an active internet connection.

  • You could also be having computer connection problems. If you see a yellow banner above your chats list with the error message "Computer not connected", make sure to check your computer's Internet connection is active. It is not just your phone that needs to have an active and stable connection, but your computer also requires the same.

  • Lastly, you could also have Wi-Fi problems while using WhatsApp Web. If WhatsApp Web notifies you that you're on a Wi-Fi network that's preventing WhatsApp Web from operating correctly, please make sure your network is set up to bypass traffic to web.whatsapp.com, .web.whatsapp.com, or .whatsapp.net.
