If you think that in order to have two WhatsApp accounts on the same cell phone you need a dual-SIM model, that is, one that allows the insertion of two SIM cards (SIM cards) with different numbers, you are wrong. Did you know that there are different ways to use a secondary app account on the same device?
Generally speaking, there are three main methods: WhatsApp Business; the app’s twin function, which comes with some phones; and the Parallel Space app, aimed at Android devices that replicate the effects of the previous function.
Two WhatsApp accounts on mobile
Messenger does not allow users to have two personal accounts on one device. To get around this rule, users can resort to creating a WhatsApp Business account. After all, it is perfectly possible to use the business version of the messenger for personal purposes. However, there is an important rule: each account must be registered with a different number. See some options below:
- Sign up for WhatsApp Business
If you already have a regular two Whatsapp accounts profile, you will notice that the registration process in the business version (Android | iOS) is very similar. To get started, install the app from the Google Play Store or App Store.
On the main screen, click “Agree and Continue” to agree to the Terms of Service. Then select “Use another number” and enter it on the next screen. From there, just go through the verification steps and complete the process by customizing your profile.
- Use the same app feature
On two Whatsapp accounts, there is also a dual app feature. It may appear under different names such as “Dual App”, “Twin Apps”, “Clone Apps” and “Dual Messenger”. This feature created a second twin app and made WhatsApp Dual possible. Some models from Xiaomi, Samsung, Oppo, Asus, Huawei, LG and other manufacturers have this function.
However, it is worth remembering that this path may vary from Android device to Android device. In this case, the tip is: Use the search bar at the top of the settings to find this feature on your smartphone.
- Create a double WhatsApp with Parallel Space
For those who do not want to use WhatsApp Business and do not have a mobile phone with the above features, there is also the Parallel Space app (Android), which replicates the dual-app effect. Here’s how to use it on your phone:
- Install the Espaço Paralelo app;
- On the home page, click the “Continue” button, then click “Start”;
- Once done, you will see supported apps in the app;
- Select WhatsApp; Then click on “Add to Parallel Space”;
- Give the messenger one more click and grant the necessary permissions;
- When everything is in order, you will see a second WhatsApp and start registering your secondary number.
Is it safe to use the modified WhatsApp app?
The answer is simple and obvious: No! It is worth remembering that other alternative apps (.apk) or modified WhatsApp apps may not be the best option in terms of security.
So don’t put your number in questionable apps, known examples are unofficial copies of messengers like WhatsApp GB and WhatsApp 2.
