Summary

★★★★★ WATookit is a useful extension for WhatsApp™ Web!

Never ever miss a WhatsApp notification again while you are on your desktop computer. This extension makes it possible to receive WhatsApp notifications even when there is no WhatsApp tab or Chrome window at all open. This way you will never miss a message again while working on your PC.

———————————————————— FEATURES ————————————————————

★ Enables always-on desktop notifications: Chrome will run in background mode permanently, keeping track and showing your WhatsApp notifications instantly. You can click on the notifications to go directly to the relevant chat.

★ Adds a convenient WhatsApp button to the toolbar: It includes the number of unread messages always visible. You can hover the mouse over the icon and you will see a summary of your unread conversations in a tooltip. In addition, the icon will become orange if there's some kind of connectivity issue with your phone. You can still hide the button if you want, just right click on it and select "Hide button".

★ Ensures you only have one instance of WhatsApp Web open at any time: That way you can focus on the right tab in any situation. Moreover, you won't be bothered with WhatsApp's exit confirmation messages any more.

★ Extremely lightweight and fast: Coded with performance in mind.

This garbage is used by third parties and modify few things in your Internet without notification. Definitely is not what you want to have in your tools if you want security and privacy.
