How to See WSS Requests on Network Tab?

If you are trying to see WSS (Web Socket Secure) requests on the network tab in your browser, then there are a few steps you can follow:

Step 1: Open the Browser Developer Console

Firstly, you need to open the developer console of the browser you are using. You can do this by pressing the F12 key or by right-clicking on the webpage and selecting "Inspect" or "Inspect Element".

Step 2: Navigate to the Network Tab

Once you have the developer console open, navigate to the network tab. This is where all the network requests are listed, including WSS requests.

Step 3: Filter for WSS Requests

In the network tab, you will see a filter option. Click on it and select "WebSockets". This will filter the network requests to only show WSS requests.

Step 4: Analyze the WSS Requests

Now that you have filtered for WSS requests, you can analyze them to understand what is happening in the background of the webpage. You can click on each request to see its details, including headers, response, and timing.

Alternative Way: Use a WebSocket Client

If you want to see WSS requests in more detail than what is provided by the browser developer console, then you can use a WebSocket client. There are many WebSocket clients available online, such as WebSocket Echo Test.

//Example code for opening a WSS connection using JavaScript

var socket = new WebSocket("wss://");

socket.onopen = function(event) {
  console.log("WebSocket connection opened");

socket.onmessage = function(event) {
  console.log("Received message:",;

socket.onclose = function(event) {
  console.log("WebSocket connection closed");

Using the above code, you can open a WSS connection and listen for messages. This can be useful for testing WSS connections and debugging any issues that may arise.
