Although it is possible to use WhatsApp on your computer via https://web.whatsapp.com/, it can only be used if we have already created our account on our mobile.
We must understand that WhatsApp it is designed for mobile but not for computers; for this reason, it is only possible to create an account via the WhatsApp application installed on your phone, and only then you will be able to use WhatsApp on your computer.
How to create a WhatsApp account
Before you can set up your personal WhatsApp account, you must first download and install the application on your phone. If you still do not have it, you will need to download WhatsApp first.
Once the application is installed on your phone, simply search for the WhatsApp icon and click on it to open the app.
If you have already set up your WhatsApp account, the application will open and you can start chatting immediately with any of your contacts. However, if you remove the app or you are opening WhatsApp for the first time, you will need to follow a few simple steps to set up your account (explained below).
Enter your phone number
If you have never installed WhatsApp on your mobile, WhatsApp will send you a message to your phone with a code that you will need to enter correctly to check your phone number.
Click on ‘Skip Restoration’
Choose a profile picture (optional) and enter the name with which you want your contacts to see you. Finally, click on ‘I finished’
Now WhatsAppis installed and associated to your phone number. From now, all you have to do is click on the WhatsApp app icon to open it and start talking with your contacts.
To start a conversation with one of your contacts, go to “Discussions” and click on the pencil icon at the top right of your screen (on the iPhone). A drop-down list will appear with all the contacts on your phone using WhatsApp. Just click on the contact you want to talk to and start writing.
