🔑 Link and Unlink a Device to Your WhatsApp Business App Account
On this page you learn how to link and unlink a device to your WhatsApp Business App account.
After you create an account on WhatsApp Business App, you can link up to four devices to it. Those four devices can only be PCs. Your phone does not have to be connected all the time for the other four devices to remain linked, but if you don’t use your phone for over 14 days, the devices will get unlinked automatically.
If you want to link more than four devices, you must subscribe to WhatsApp Business Premium.
How to Link a Device
If you have an android device, under the Chats, tap three dots at the top right corner. For iOS devices, go to Settings. For Android devices select Linked devices.
Tap Link a device. If you have an iOS device, you need to unlock your phone first.
Scan the QR code with your phone. If the PC is in a different location, send a screenshot of the QR code to the person with the phone for scanning. After a few seconds, the PC gets connected.
