When Whatsdog was launched, it gained its Android user base very quickly because of the features it offered. It lets you spy on any of your WhatsApp contact “Last Seen” without coming online. After Whatsdog, many developers came up with similar apps that let you know anyone’s last seen and also track when someone comes online on WhatsApp. So here we are going to cover 5 best Whatsdog alternative apps for you.
Need for Whatsdog Alternative Apps
As Whatsdog is not working anymore, the users are looking for the alternative apps which can serve the purpose to view the WhatsApp contacts last seen. The app was discontinued from Google Play play store after some time but was available separately to download. Even after that users were facing downtime in the app and the features were not working properly.
I have checked and tested all the below-listed apps in order to explore all the features of the apps. I have also mentioned pros and cons to give a clear picture to help in deciding the best app for you.
1) WhatsMonitor for WhatsApp
This a great app and a very good substitute if you compare it with Whatsdog features. It will show how many times a user came on WhatsApp and how long they were online. Giving you a clear picture of someone’s Whatsapp activity. You can also look at the WhatsMonitor review.
- Works even if someone has disabled the last seen.
- You will receive notification as soon as someone comes online on WhatsApp.
- You can see anyone’s WhatsApp last seen even if you’re blocked by someone.
- No downtime.

Another choice you have is WhatsAgent. It allows you track any WhatsApp contact’s activity free for 7 days (trial period). Similar to Whatsdog, you can view anyone’s last seen timestamp even if it is turned off. It presents the stats in a rich graphical format.
Take a look at the pros and cons of WhatsAgent.
