Discover how to check if your WhatsApp messages are being seen

Do you think someone is watching your WhatsApp without your permission? Do you think he can have access to all your conversations and chats? It is not something unreasonable, since there are several ways that someone can access your WhatsApp and use it on another device. If you are an experienced user, you will already know what we are talking about, but if you do not have much to do with technology, we are going to tell you how to know if someone is entering your WhatsApp.

There are several ways, but only one is simple

Well, there are several ways that someone is viewing your WhatsApp conversations, but only one is accessible to most users. This happens by having access to your device for a minute or two and opening a session of your account on another device.

In case you don’t know, WhatsApp can be used on several mobiles at the same time, on a tablet, or on a computer simultaneously. It’s very easy, you just have to open the service on a computer and scan from your mobile QR code. Then the session will start and you will be able to see all the conversations.

It is possible to use this method to do a lot of damage to another person: just hold your device for 30 seconds to log in on a computer and be able to see all your conversations. Of course, it’s something completely illegal and today we are going to tell you how to detect and eradicate it.

Check your WhatsApp account logins

If you suspect that someone has been able to do this to access your WhatsApp, it is very easy to check. You simply have to enter the app, go to the settings and click on «paired devices«.

In this section, you can see which devices have an active session of your WhatsApp account. The app will tell you if it is a computer, another mobile, or a tablet. Also, the location since you logged in and the time that the device has been active.

If you’ve never logged in on another device this means that someone is spying on your WhatsApp and seeing everything you write, they write to you and pass you by. ALL. Including photos, videos, and voice notes. Has full access to your account.

Sign out and take action

From the section in which the information is displayed, you can also close that session. Click on «Sign off«, but not before having taken screenshots to take action on the matter.

Carrying out this action without the consent of the affected person is a crime in most countries of the world so you can report it. Most likely, you will not get much, since WhatsApp information is quite limited. Hopefully, you’ll be able to tell who it is from the device and the location of the login.

No session logged in, can you still spy on me?

The answer is yes, but most likely no. WhatsApp is a fairly secure app with many security systems. Hacking WhatsApp is really complicated, and we don’t say it, but cybersecurity experts from many companies do. Must have lots of knowledge and equipment to do so probably no one is doing this with your account.

If there are no other devices in your account logins, it is very likely that no one is accessing your WhatsApp account remotely. What is possible is that they are accessing from your own phone, but unfortunately, there is no method to find out.
