My camera doesn't work. I already tried downloading different camera applications but none of them worked. Problem is physical not software-related. How can I login to Whatsapp Web without scanning the QR code?


You can't, you need to scann with Whatsapp, if you scann the QR code with a normal reader, how a website or similar, you only get a plain text.

Whatsapp send that text to your own server to enable you a session in your browser.

  • Are you sure of the last part? – SarpSTA Feb 10 '16 at 19:19
  • Yes, they need to process to enable you the session, that plain text don't have any data what you can read or usage how a link or anything else. – molblin Feb 10 '16 at 19:23
  • It is not that I already know how the mechanism behind it works but since it is not the webpage itself that is connecting to the servers, I don't think it is necessary to send the code to the server. – SarpSTA Feb 10 '16 at 23:12
  • Yeah the webpage connect to the servers, but they need to know "Who" they are able to connect and enable, They need to know which User o what phone number is connecting to use the service. – molblin Feb 10 '16 at 23:17
  • Are you sure? I am pretty sure webpage doesn't connect to the server. – SarpSTA Feb 10 '16 at 23:19
