Have you ever wondered how to block WhatsApp Web on your PC? The truth is that this tool is one of the most interesting that has appeared on the market regarding WhatsApp allowing us to work comfortably from our computer and taking even more advantage of the interesting updates that have been made in recent times.
Many of our readers recently asked us if there is an option that allows us to block WhatsApp Web for use on a computer from the PC, but if it is true that its Web version is somewhat limited compared to the version of a mobile.
You should know that he there are actually some stuff on that, and then we want to show you what you have to do in all of these cases.
Well, first of all, in order to be alert it is important to confirm if you are connected to any PC. Then already to block WhatsApp Web on a Mac, follow the instructions below; you need to go to the router, and look for the parental control section or blocking web pages, as this is the easiest way to block entry to that site.
You will see that there is a space where you must add the address of the site you want to block, and that in this case, it is “https://web.whatsapp.com”. Once you have placed it and saved the changes then no one on that computer will be able to access WhatsApp Web anymore.
On the other hand, if you don’t have access to the router, which is something that happens to many users, you should know that there is also the possibility call your Internet company, and ask them to perform the lock themselves remotely,which only takes a few minutes.
However, if you have a computer with a Windows operating system, it is even easier to be able to block WhatsApp Web.
What you have to do in these cases is, in the address bar of the browser, to place the path C: WindowsSystem32driversetc, which is the one that refers to WindowsSystem32driversetc.
You will see that inside this folder we can find a specific file called hosts, who is the one who controls what access we can have and what we cannot.
Run the hosts file with Notepad, download it if you don’t have it or with a text app, and you will see that at the end of the same file you have the option to add a particular list.
In this way, you will have associated the web.whatsapp.com subdomain with the IP address 22.214.171.124, thiswhich will cause your computer to not load it in any way because it will show you an error.
You have to learn how to disconnect or close the WhatsApp web from a mobile. Imagine you opened it on a public computer, you have completed your activity and hit it on the x in order to close it.
Let me tell you that this action was not enough if your phone is still close to your PC and anyone accessing that same PC that you used could easily access your personal information, contacts, private messages, statuses, whatever is stored at the moment.
I understand how dangerous it is, I’m sure. Now that I have your attention, let’s see how we can disconnect WhatsApp if, for some reason we are no longer in front of the screen on which we were giving it proper use.
First, open the WhatsApp app onyour phone, then go to the settings section and continue with the WhatsApp Web option which is the second in the menu under the featured messages, press and once inside you give it to close all sessions.
