Now this requires a person to be a little knowledgeable about MAC addresses and stuff. Once you get a hang of it, you can easily view all the conversations live as they happen, free of charge. So allow me to explain how it is done.
Step 1: Uninstall whatsapp on your phone.
Step 2: Acquire the target phone and retrieve the MAC address.
This can be done by going to the phone’s about section and browsing to look for the info named ‘Wifi MAC address’ (it is listed under status in Android phones).
Step 3: Install apps like Wifi MAC changer and configure it (by inputting the MAC address of the target phone) on your rooted device to temporarily change your phone’s MAC address to the target phone’s.
Step 4: Re-Install the latest version of whatsapp on your phone. Enter target’s phone number and verify it using the SMS verification.
Now you would be able to use the target’s Whatsapp account on your phone freely and monitor every move.
So there you have it. 3 dependable ways by which you can track someone’s activity on whatsapp. Two of these three methods do not require any technical knowledge and can be done by anyone.
