Other Aspect of WhatsApp Web Security
As we all know WhatsApp has been criticized for not encrypting its messages (which it later started encrypting), which made a big security hole in the reliability and privacy of messages. However the new addition of WhatsApp web doesn’t compromises with the security aspect. You cannot easily check which browser is connected to your WhatsApp account. You can also remotely disable any of the browser which you had been connected to. Because it is now in its initial days some flaws might be possible. But till today there is no complain regarding its security concern have been found. WhatsApp Web certainly extends WhatsApp functionality and is far better than the other i.e. WhatsCloud or WhatsApp remote. The bonus advantage of using this app is that it is completely free of cost.
