2. Remove notice from WhatsApp Web
The warning “WhatsApp Web is currently active” is fixed on the screen of the Android phone whenever the web version of the messenger is being used by the PC. The notification can annoy some users and there is a trick that allows you to remove it. The feature can only be accessed by those who have a cell phone with Android 8.0 or higher and, to remove the alert, simply slide the notification to the right and tap on the gear that appears next.
The app will list the alert options in the messenger. To remove the WhatsApp notification from the screen, tap on “Other notifications”. There, the application will no longer send this type of alert, while the others are unchanged.
