Have you heard about Whatscan but are unsure how to utilize it effectively? Let’s start at the beginning: Whatscan allows you to associate WhatsApp with another mobile device, imitating the presence of the WhatsApp Web, and allowing you to control a WhatsApp account from a different device, bypassing the app’s limitations. It occurs to me that this functionality is actually being used for something else (illicit).
Whatscan lets you spy on and examine another person’s WhatsApp app to see what messages they’ve received and sent. It’s up to you whether you use it to spy on other people’s WhatsApp or as a system to have your account on multiple devices, but for the purposes of this guide, we’ll focus on the functionality provided by the developer: it’s up to you whether you use it to read someone’s WhatsApp messages or as a system to have your account on multiple devices.
Whatscan: how it works and what it is used for
As previously stated, Whatscan allows you to check messages received from a WhatsApp account on another mobile device in order to circumvent the app’s limitations. To accomplish this, it provides a mechanism that “imitates” the existence of a fixed PC web browser, allowing you to rapidly integrate WhatsApp Web with that app: in other words, it delivers WhatsApp Web to your phone!
The association can do it with your WhatsApp account (which is entirely legal) or with another user’s WhatsApp account (which is illegal), but the methods are identical in both cases: open the Whatscan app and look for the QR code (essential for the association of the account).
Open the WhatsApp app on your smartphone (or the one you wish to associate) and press the menu at the top right of the main screen to get the WhatsApp Web item.
The rear camera will open, ready to scan the visible QR code from Whatscan; if you already have a Web WhatsApp account associated with your account, simply click on the upper right corner (+ symbol) to add a new device or click on Disconnected from this computer to disconnect the existing one.
NOTE: At any given moment, you can only have one device connected to WhatsApp Web.
After scanning, WhatsApp Web chat will display on Whatscan, with the main difference being that instead of being accessed through a PC desktop browser (as it should be), everything is accessed through the handy mobile app.
You can now use the same WhatsApp app on two different devices without any issues with notifications or access! Of course, this can be used to spy on someone’s WhatsApp account, but I do not encourage going down this path because you risk committing significant criminal violations (in fact you are violating all the privacy and personal identity laws).
How can you defend yourself from Whatscan
Themes so that apps like Whatscan don’t spy on your WhatsApp profile? How can you spot a threat to your privacy? Fortunately, “something is wrong” with your WhatsApp account is easy to spot: for each portion of WhatsApp Web launched (from a PC or from this sort of app), a fixed notification will show on the smartphone connected to the account.
You are almost probably spying on your account with Whatscan if you get this notification and are not using Whatscan or WhatsApp Web from a PC (maybe they could make the association when you were distracted, they took your phone and they have all programmed to spy on WhatsApp without your consent).
Another technique to prevent someone from spying on WhatsApp is to check the associations in the WhatsApp Web menu of your app, so you can always decouple devices with which you are unfamiliar (using the Disconnect option).
To avoid being spied on WhatsApp using Whatscan or similar programs, it may be a good idea to set an unlock route or PIN to access the device, as well as block access to specific apps (such as WhatsApp) with a password.
