WhatsApp was designed to be used only on active phones. It is possible to use WhatsApp on a PC or laptop, even if you don’t have a mobile phone.
The platform had released the multi-device feature a few months ago that allows you to access WhatsApp from any device. This feature is available in both the WhatsApp Web and Desktop versions.
This allows users to access the messaging app from up to four devices simultaneously, and they don’t need to be connected to the internet. You can access WhatsApp from any device, even if you have your phone turned off.
How to use the messaging platform without a phone on a laptop or pc
Step 1: If you don’t wish to download the desktop app, type WhatsApp Web into your browser.
Step 2: Now you will see the WhatsApp Web link at the top. Click on it to display a QR code.

Step 4: Now you will see the text “Scan QR Code” at the top of your WhatsApp screen. Now you will need to simply place your smartphone on the screen of your laptop and scan the QR code.
