Does WhatsApp web require the computer and phone to be connected to the same wifi network simultaneously?
Assume I've already authenticated and used WhatsApp web - then taken my phone outside the house (miles away, no chance of it still being connected to WiFi). Now I log back into WhatsApp web, would it still work?
Reason I ask is that I've lost my phone and yet WhatsApp web was still working (until the phone died). So I'm wondering whether it's actually lost (outside the house - many miles away) or whether it's actually hiding in the house somewhere and was actually still connected to the WiFi network (until it died).
