Your tablet or desktop computer can send and receive WhatsApp messages via WhatsApp Web. The WhatsApp Web client is a PC application that runs in a web browser. You are simply accessing the same account from two different devices, it is not another account.
You can instantly send and receive messages through WhatsApp Web, which works just like WhatsApp on your phone. Syncing your WhatsApp account across both of your devices allows you to see all your messages. If you send a message through WhatsApp Web, it will also appear on your mobile device. Smartphones running Android and iOS can use WhatsApp Web.
