There are apps like these:

for some reason it isnt working lol

it pops a message on first launch saying it doesnt work after android 10 something something.

anyway i give up

i wanted to scrap a mobile app by knowing what API it uses, since its web version uses server side rendering and put all the data into an image. i'll just use ML to reverse engineer the image back into data.

You may need to read the T&C before doing this.
Testing / Finding backdoor of a product without proper invitation / authorized may have legal issue.

If I use WhatsApp for Web, press F12 and go to Network tab, how do I know the API being called?

Perhaps you can teach me...  icon_question.gif
