Can my boyfriend login to my WhatsApp on his phone? What does he need in order to login is it just my number? Will he see my contacts and my messages when he logs in ? Don’t ask why I’m asking that doesn’t matter

I assume it'll send a one time passcode to your phone number, it would be very insecure if you could log in to anyone's account simply by knowing their phone number!

Yes, you can log in to any Whatsapp account from any phone, and he'd need the same login credentials as you did when you logged into Whatsapp on your phone, not too sure if it would flag the login attempt as suspicious because you're still logged in on your phone, never tried logging in to someone else's Whatsapp account.

Pretty sure Whatsapp only works on one phone at a time, so no.

honestly sounds that because you're worried, yeah, he shouldn't do that but it sounds like you're hiding something like a convo with another guy, cheating, anything. So just relax if you have nothing to hide.

Should also add that him accessing your Whatsapp account without your permission is a criminal offence under the Computer Misuse Act 1991.

He can do this.

He only needs to activate based on your phone receiving a text message... meaning he needs access to your phone.

However he's probably not done this. It's hard to do, and if he has an account and switches back to his then he'd lose access to yours.

If you think he's got access it's probably via WhatsApp Web... web.whatsapp.com and having used your phone to authorise that. You can verify this easily by looking in WhatsApp Web (in the app on your phone) to see if there are any linked devices.

If someone has temporary access to your phone, then the most likely way to gain access for a longer time is WhatsApp Web. However you can revoke access granted that way.

TBH, all of that is a faff. He's probably reading the notifications on your phone screen when you're with him.
