Just noticed this on my Macbook; currently have WhatsApp Desktop installed and it used to always need the phone to be online/connected in order to work.

The current update has a small note stating: [“With this update, your phone won’t need to stay online to user WhatsApp Desktop.”](https://i.imgur.com/6a5NbR6.jpg)

This might be beyond my abilities to understand – but this strikes me as being a lot less secure. Tried to dig up a changelog for the desktop version but there isn’t one. What are your thoughts?
