We have had a lot of queries from our users asking about various methods to spy on WhatsApp. Keeping that in mind, I have come across another method to spy on WhatsApp messages and guess what, this method won’t even cost you a dime. So, let’s have a look how to achieve that in iOS, Android and Windows.
Spy on WhatsApp for Free
The process is basically the same for all the iOS, Android and Windows smartphones.
We hope that you might have heard about WhatsApp Web. It is a Web application of WhatsApp which allows you to access your WhatsApp account on web browsers like Google Chrome, Firefox etc. Your WhatsApp account is mirrored on the Web browser with WhatsApp web. Mostly, it is used by people to use WhatsApp on PC.
However, you can use WhatsApp web to spy on others WhatsApp account. Here’s how:
Spy WhatsApp Messages From PC
Target device: iPhone
1. Open WhatsApp Web on PC from where you want to track WhatsApp.
2. Get the iOS device for which you want to monitor WhatsApp messages(target device) for a couple of minutes( actually you don’t even need it for half a minute)
3. Open WhatsApp app on the iOS device and Select Settings Tab.
4. Tap on WhatsApp Web and scan the code by putting the target phone in front of your browser screen from where you opened WhatsApp Web earlier.
Voila! You can return the iOS device to the owner and you have his/her WhatsApp account mirrored on your laptop/desktop browser. You will get all the messages in real-time on your Browser as it will be received on that iOS device WhatsApp account which you just scanned.
Target Device: Android, Windows
The procedure is exactly the same as iPhone/iPad with the difference being the placement of WhatsApp Web option in the WhatsApp for Android and Windows.
For Android phone, you can find the WhatsApp Web option by clicking on the three dots at the top right corner of the app.
To track WhatsApp for Windows phone you can find WhatsApp Web option by navigating to Menu > WhatsApp Web.
Once you get WhatsApp Web option in WhatsApp for Android and Windows, you need to open it and scan the QR code in your device from where you want to spy it, from the target phone as we explained for iPhone above.

Method 2: Using Your Smartphone’s Browser
You can use this method if you don’t own an Android device.
You can also spy on WhatsApp using your smartphone’s browser as well. If you want to spy from your iPhone Safari browser, then after opening WhatsApp Web on Safari, request Desktop Site.
On requesting desktop site, WhatsApp Web will open the same way in Safari as it opened in your Laptop browser. You can go ahead and scan the code by placing the target device in front of your Safari browser where WhatsApp Web is opened.
If you want to spy WhatsApp from an Android phone then you can visit WhatsApp Web on your phone and tap on three dots present at the right-hand side in the Address bar and select Request Desktop Site as shown below.
After that, you can go ahead and scan QR code on your phone browser from the phone you want to spy.
All of the above methods let you spy WhatsApp without any software but there are a few limitations as listed below:
1. You cannot spy on WhatsApp calls using this method. But you can use FlexiSpy to spy on WhatsApp calls which is a paid application.
2. The person whose WhatsApp account you are tracking will get to know about it by navigating to WhatsApp Web in their WhatsApp. It will show all active sessions of their WhatsApp account on WhatsApp web, where they get an option to disconnect those sessions via Log out from all computers option as shown below.
But the second point should not matter much if the other person is aware and has no problems with you spying his WhatsApp account.
