How to enter WhatsApp without downloading it?
If you do not have the application on a mobile, it is possible to enter Whatsapp through a computer.
This functionality has become one of the most important work tools for all people, especially in these moments, when many of them carry out their work remotely, from their homes.
The Iberian portal El Español recommends a few simple steps to access WhatsApp.
First, the browser must be opened. “If you have Windows 8.1 or higher you will be able to download the desktop client. When you start the application, a QR code will appear that will have to be scanned with the mobile”.

“Next, you must start the app from your mobile and go to the menu to select WhatsApp Web. Then, the device’s camera will start up and perform a scan, so you only have to focus with your mobile on the code that appeared on the screen from the computer and voila, your session will begin immediately “, notes the web portal.
Keep in mind that it is important that the mobile is turned on and that it has a connection to a WiFi network or that the data is activated.
However, it is also possible to activate WhatsApp Web without mobile. Keep in mind that this tool always relates a mobile number, which is the one that allows the system to generate the QR code.
But if you don’t have a mobile phone, El Español recommends: “The only way to get it is by using a android emulator for your computer, so you will not need to have your mobile near or connected to the Internet, because your own computer will play the role of Smartphone. To do this, you will have to download the emulator, and from here we recommend Bluestacks, since it is the most popular. When you have it downloaded and installed, you must proceed to configure it “, recommends the portal.

The next step is to download the WhatsApp APK and install it on the computer. Then, the user will be asked for their phone number, which will send a security code to that number. “Once you confirm that code, you will be able to use WhatsApp Web without your mobile on,” explains the website.
The only mandatory requirement, however, is that to begin with you must have a mobile phone to receive the security code.
