WhatsApp Web is a feature provided by WhatsApp that enables us to run WhatsApp on our desktop device simultaneously.

Perhaps you are already using WhatsApp Web. It allows us to utilize WhatsApp on a desktop device, providing convenience when working on the computer without having to open the phone app.

However, many people may not be aware that it can also be locked.

So, when you are away from your computer, nobody can access it, even if your laptop/desktop is unlocked.
