  2. Click on the 3 dots available in the top right corner of WhatsApp.
  3. Then click on the link to a device.


This will show you a list of all the devices that are currently logged in via WhatsApp Web.

If you see a suspicious device or device that you think, you haven’t logged in to. You can log out from it. To log out from the device simply click on the device name, then click on logout.

If you look closely, you will notice that there is no particular feature such as clicking on the button and getting WhatsApp web history. These steps are only a snapshot of the last time your account was active on the smartphone app. There is no way to examine a login history for WhatsApp Web because WhatsApp does not retain or log information about the times when you log into the web version of the program.


In conclusion, viewing the history of your WhatsApp Web login is just an active history of your phone. This is actually the last seen status on your smartphone. By following this, you can keep track of which devices are currently logged into your account. You can also take action if necessary to keep your account secure.
