WhatsApp is now introducing a security fix to address an issue that makes your devices not properly synced. This issue may cause data to be wrongly synced between your linked devices, so your chats and messages. In order to fix this issue, WhatsApp may automatically log your linked devices out:
This fix has been implemented on WhatsApp beta for Android, but there is also some real evidence that WhatsApp has introduced the same fix on WhatsApp beta for iOS as well, and this operation is automatic. In this case, if your WhatsApp account experiences some issues syncing data between linked devices, WhatsApp is able to automatically log you out as a safety precaution and it’s rolled out to people that experience this kind of issue. If you open WhatsApp Settings > Linked Devices and you see the same message, don’t worry: you can relink your devices again in the same section using the QR Code, and your chats and messages will be in sync again and properly.
