Having two WhatsApp accounts on Android
As I told you in the introduction of the article, WhatsApp does not integrate a special function that allows you to use two different accounts on the same device, let alone have two accounts with the same number. However, you can try to "bypass" these limitations and have two WhatsApp accounts on Android resorting to WhatsApp Business, the version of the messaging app designed for companies, or use solutions that allow you to emulate the apps installed on your smartphone, including that of WhatsApp.
Please note: to carry out the operations indicated in the next paragraphs, you must first insert the SIM relative to the number associated with your "secondary" WhatsApp account in another smartphone or in your own device, if it is dual-SIM, so as to be able to verify the number itself .
The first solution that I invite you to try is to resort to WhatsApp Business, the version of WhatsApp designed to facilitate communication between companies or professionals with their customers. After installing and starting it on your Android device, all you have to do is start the simple configuration procedure and provide the number of the second WhatsApp account you want to create. While being able to install and use WhatsApp Business together with the "classic" version of the WhatsApp client, I want to tell you that you cannot use the same number on both.
After installing and starting WhatsApp Business, accept the conditions of use of the service by tapping the button Accetta and continue. Now, provide the number you want to use on the second account and verify it. Then select the country code from the drop-down menu and type yours in the appropriate text field telephone number.
Then he presses on the buttons NEXT e Continue and complete the procedure by allowing the application to access messages, contacts, photos and multimedia content on the device, by pressing the buttons Continue e Allow. If the number you indicated had already been used previously, you will be asked whether or not you want to restore the conversations you previously backed up: then press the button Restore and press pulsating NEXT. Then complete the configuration by indicating the business name (or your name, if you don't want to use it for business) and pressing the buttons NEXT e OK.
Mission accomplished! From this moment on, you can use two different accounts on your device: the main one you set up in the “traditional” WhatsApp client, and the secondary one you set up just now in WhatsApp Business. For more information on using WhatsApp Business, read the guide I just linked to you.
As an alternative to the solution I mentioned earlier, I recommend the use of parallel Space: a free app that you can download from the Play Store and that allows you to use two WhatsApp accounts on the same device by going to "clone" the official client of the famous messaging service. For your information, I would like to point out that Parallel Space allows you to emulate many other apps, including Facebook, Instagram, Telegram, Chrome, etc.
After installing and starting Parallels Space on your device, press the button GET STARTED located in the center of the screen (bottom), deselect the other apps on the screen Clone apps (if you are not interested in "doubling" even the latter) and tap the button Add to Parallel Space (N) located at the bottom. After that refuses to share some usage data with the app developers by pressing on the appropriate items you see on the screen.
At this point, press the icon of WhatsApp placed at the top left, presses the button OK and wait for the operation to be successful. Within a few seconds, you will find yourself in front of the WhatsApp welcome screen, from which you can configure your second account. Therefore, press the button Accetta and continue located at the bottom, select the paese relative to the international prefix from the appropriate drop-down menu, enter the telephone number associated with your second account and presses the buttons NEXT e OK.
Now, wait for it to be sent to the phone number you indicated earlier on verification code six digits, presses the button NEXT and wait a few seconds for the procedure to be completed. As if by "magic", you can use WhatApp using a sort of clone client. To access it, then, you will have to start the app of parallel Space by pressing on its icon that appears on the Home screen or in the drawer (the screen where the icons of all installed apps are present) and, once its main screen is displayed, tap on the WhatsApp. Più semplice di così ?!
Have two WhatsApp accounts on iPhone
Possiedi a iPhone and would you like to know how to use two WhatsApp accounts on your "iPhone by"? Then I suggest you follow the same procedure that I explained to you in the previous chapter, regarding the WhatsApp Business app which, when combined with a different phone number, allows you to use two WhatsApp accounts on the same device.
Other working solutions are gods tweak, that is the apps that are not officially available on the App Store but only on Cydia (an alternative store accessible to "iPhone by" jailbroken). Since these apps are not pre-checked by Apple staff, and given the fact that their respective developers can potentially use them to access private information, I advise against using them, as they can pose a serious danger. for privacy.
