  5. After scanning the code, WhatsApp will load in your browser.

Note: Keep in mind that you need to keep your phone connected to the network in order to use WhatsApp in the web browser.

Although this method works in all browsers, for best WhatsApp experience we suggest using Opera.

Opera has integrated messenger, and it works with WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, and VK out of the box. If needed, there’s an Instagram integration available as well.

The browser is quite light on your resources, so it should be able to handle all sorts of tasks with ease.

Opera also has advanced tab management allowing to easily search for tabs or organize them into workspaces.

As for security, there’s built-in tracking protection as well as protection against cryptominers. For an additional layer of security, there’s a free VPN with unlimited bandwidth.

Opera is great for social media, and since it’s made on Chromium engine, it should work with Chrome extensions as well. The browser is available on all platforms, so be sure to try it out.



If you love visiting your favorite websites fast and securely, then go ahead and give the Opera browser a try. You might end up sticking with it.

Although WhatsApp is mostly used on mobile apps, you should be able to run it in your web browser after following the instructions from this article.
