Second step: tap on the three dots on the top right corner if you are an Android user. For iOS users open the settings icon.
Third step: now open Web.WhatsApp.com on your browser which cable is suitable. For you to example Google Chrome Firefox Safari.

Sixth step: now your mobile account is synced to your WhatsApp web account. Every single action that you will take on either of the platforms will affect both of them.
