    1. No, we cannot use the same no on both pc and mobile at a same time. If you use a no on pc whatsapp, then it wont work on mobile whatsapp.

  26. but someone is using my no. on pc whatsapp because he is telling me the status of people who are in my contact...i dont knw whats happening....can he read my chat???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Its not possible. whatsapp will ask for verification if a same no is used on multiple devices- pc and mobile. whatsapp will send a verfctn code to that mobile no.

      You said that " he is telling me the status of people who are in my contact... " , but who knows that whether he got the contact no from somewhere else and checking their status? Its possible to see status of any person if we have their mobile no with us.

      Delete
  27. yeah true....but he dont knw that person not even his contact no. ... is there any possibility that whatsapp have the same confirmation code everytime...if it is possible then in that case he can see my chat by stealing my confrmation code from my mobile no. ???

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. no, whatsapp sends different codes. Iven though if he stole ur confirmation code for 1 time, the next time when he logins into ur accnt, whatsapp account will get temporarily locked coz no 2 devices can use a same no and whatsapp will again send a new confrmt code to unlock tht account.

      Maybe, he has stolen ur frnds contact no`s and checking their status as it is possible to check status of any person if we have their mobile no.
