Solution 2

Remove your current PC from the list of linked devices and sign in to WhatsApp Web.

Here’s how you can do the former on Android and iPhone. Let’s begin with the Android phone.

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app and hit the three vertical dots on the top right.

Hit “Linked devices” between “New broadcast” and “Starred messages.”

Now find your current device and browser on the list.

Hit it, and you see the Log Out option. Hit it.

That’s it.

If you’re using an iPhone, follow these steps:

Open WhatsApp and hit Settings at the bottom.

Select Linked Devices. Now find your current device and browser on the list.

Hit it, and you see the Log Out option. Hit it.

Tap Log Out from the popup.

That’s it.

Solution 3 (Android only)

Clear the WhatsApp cache on your Android phone. Here’s how:

Open the Settings app 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.” You can now see this button:

Clear Cache: Hit this one to delete the cache of the WhatsApp app.

That’s all.

Solution 4

Instead of opening WhatsApp Web in the standard browser window, open it in your browser’s incognito mode.

To open incognito mode in Chrome, press Ctrl + Shift + N after opening the browser.

If you’re an Edge browser user, check out this guide.

Solution 5

Uninstall and reinstall WhatsApp. I suggest you take a backup before proceeding with this.

Solution 6

Try the WhatsApp Desktop app instead of WhatsApp Web.

That’s it.
