How to Log Out of WhatsApp

You’ll see the steps to sign out of WhatsApp in this post. I use an iPhone X, Windows 11 PC, and Google Pixel 4a (Android 12).

Here’s an important thing to note:

The WhatsApp Messenger app doesn’t have the option to log out.

If you want to log out of WhatsApp for iPhone, you must uninstall WhatsApp. I suggest a backup before proceeding with this.

To sign out of WhatsApp for Android, you need to clear the data of the WhatsApp app. I suggest a backup before proceeding with this.

Please see the steps to log out of the WhatsApp Desktop app and Web.

Log Out of the WhatsApp Desktop App and Web

You can do this from your smartphone or PC. Let’s begin with PC.

  1. Open the WhatsApp Desktop app or WhatsApp Web on your PC.
  2. In the left sidebar top, you can find three horizontal dots (if you’re on the app) or three vertical dots (if you’re on the Web). Click on it.
  3. Select Log out. On WhatsApp Web, click on Log Out on the popup.

That’s it.

If you want to do this on your Android device or iPhone, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp app.

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

Select “Linked Devices.” You can now see the list where the browser name shows WhatsApp Web, and the operating system name shows the WhatsApp Desktop app.

Hit the one depending on from which you want to sign out.

You can now see the activity details and linked location (available only for the app and iPhone).

Hit Log Out. If you’re on an iPhone, you need to hit Log Out on the popup.

That’s all.
