How to use WhatsApp on your iPad

by Volker Weber


WhatsApp can only be installed on one phone. But you can remote control it from any Mac or PC. You probably know that and use it. What I did not know until today is that you can also remote control it from your iPad. Here is how:

  1. Load Safari
  2. Go to
  3. You will be redirected to and told to download an app.
  4. Here comes the trick. Hold the reload button and request the desktop site.
  5. Scan the QR code with your WhatsApp on your phone.



Hello Volker

I use the app "WhatsPad for iPad" and have full access to WhatsApp on my iPad.

Kind regards

Das ist ein so guter Tipp! Bin gerade sehr beliebt im Bekanntenkreis ;)...
