According to the CEO of Meta business and the creator of Facebook, a WhatsApp account may be utilized on up to four devices.
The CEO of the blue app announced this in a Facebook post.
This has prompted a number of worries regarding cybersecurity and the safety of platform accounts.
“However, why?” “My wife can access my WhatsApp on her phone and her father’s phone,” a netizen commented on the post.
“You can use up to four linked devices and one phone at the same time,” according to WhatsApp. Linking numerous devices to your company account allows more of your staff to reply to client messages from anywhere, which is very useful when conducting an ad campaign or promotion.”
According to WhatsApp: “You can use up to four linked devices and one phone at a time. Business Tips: Linking multiple devices to your business account enables more of your employees to respond to customer messages from anywhere, which can be especially helpful when you’re running an ad campaign or promotion.”
“Keep your account safer
- “By enabling push notifications on your phone, you can remove devices you don’t recognize from being linked to your account. If you don’t recognize the device, tap the notification to review and remove it.
- “Check your linked devices regularly. Go to WhatsApp Settings > Linked Devices to review all devices linked to your account. To log out of a linked device, tap the device > Log Out. We’ll also automatically disconnect linked devices after 30 days of inactivity.
- “You’ll need to scan a WhatApp QR code to link a new device to your account, so only scan QR codes on WhatsApp Web, WhatsApp Desktop, Portal from Meta, WhatsApp companion phones, Android tablets, or Ray-Ban Stories.” the company added.
In February 2014, Facebook spent $19 billion to acquire the messaging provider WhatsApp. The pricing appeared extravagant for an app that earned little money and was largely popular outside of the US.
