Open your whatsapp application tapp the three dotted menu or settings and select Whatsapp web.This will launch the inbuilt WhatsApp camera.

Point the camera to the QR code on the WhatsApp Web home page .If everything goes well you will be successfully logged to your whatsapp account.

If you disconnect your phone from the network you will see a warning telling you that the phone is not connected which brings me to the question if you can use whatsapp web without needing your phone. The answer is no.

This is because WhatsApp uses your phone to send and receive messages  which means the network acts as the gateway between whatsapp web and your phone.
