How to Log Out of WhatsApp

You’ll see the steps to sign out of your WhatsApp account in this post. I use the app (iPhone and Android phone), Web, and Desktop.

Here’s an important thing: You can’t sign out of all or multiple devices at once. This one applies to all (Web, Desktop, and app).

Log Out of WhatsApp Web

You can do this task on your smartphone or PC.

Let’s see the steps to do this task on PC. And for the smartphone, look at the Android or iPhone section below.

Here are the steps:

Open the WhatsApp Web on your PC.

On the left sidebar top, you can find three vertical dots. Click on it.

Select Log out.

Hit Log Out in the popup.

That’s it.

Note that the alternate method to sign out of WhatsApp Web is clearing the browser’s cookies.

Log Out of WhatsApp (Desktop App)

You can do this task on your smartphone or PC.

Let’s see the steps to do this on PC. And for the smartphone, look at the Android or iPhone section below.

Here are the steps:

Open the WhatsApp Desktop app on your PC.

On the bottom left, you can see the Gear icon. Click on it.

In the “General,” you can see the “Log out” button. Hit it.

Click on Yes in the popup.

That’s it.

Android or iPhone

If you want to do the above task remotely, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app on your Android device or iPhone.

Hit Settings at the bottom if you’re using an iPhone. You need to hit the three vertical dots on the top right on Android.

Select “Linked Devices.” You can now see the list where the entries with the browser name show WhatsApp Web, and only the operating system name indicates the WhatsApp Desktop app.

Hit the one depending on from which you want to sign out. You can now see the last active details and linked location (only on the iPhone).

Hit the Log Out option. You must hit Log Out on the popup if you’re on an iPhone.

That’s all.

Sign Out of WhatsApp (Android)

To log out of WhatsApp on your Android phone, you need to clear the data of the WhatsApp app.

I suggest a WhatsApp backup before proceeding with this.

Here are the steps:

Open the Settings app on your Android device and hit Apps.

Select “See all X apps.” X is a number.

Find WhatsApp and hit it. You’re in the App info screen of WhatsApp now.

Select “Storage & cache.”

Clear storage: Hit this one to clear WhatsApp data. In the confirmation popup, you can see this message:

Delete app data?

This app’s data, including files and settings, will be permanently deleted from this device.

Hit the “Delete” option, and that’s all.

Logging Out of WhatsApp (iPhone)

If you want to log out of WhatsApp on your iPhone, you must uninstall WhatsApp.

You can’t sign out of WhatsApp without deleting it on your iPhone. I suggest a backup before proceeding with the steps.

Here are the steps:

Long press the WhatsApp icon and tap “Remove App.”

In the popup, hit Delete App, and that’s all.
