It is possible even without having a phone that allows to place two sim cards.
A large proportion of WhatsApp users have had more than one headache from mixing private messages and working on the same phone. There are also people who prefer to even have two different accounts to use both at work or simply to give them personal use.
On iPhone, risky
For Apple phone users we have bad news: You can not have two WhatsApp accounts simultaneously! Unless we jailbreak (unlock) the phone. Which we do not recommend for the insecurity and instability for the iPhone that entails doing such thing.
Android, the solution
The good news is that we can count on two accounts on smartphones with the Google operating system. The first thing to know is that we need two sim cards with two different phone numbers . Without that we are not going anywhere. It is also advisable to have a phone that supports two sim cards simultaneously. Although this is not absolutely necessary, it makes the operation more comfortable.
The key application for having two WhatsApp accounts is Parallel Space . It basically allows you to duplicate applications downloaded from Google’s digital store.
Once we run Parallel Space we can activate the second WhatsApp account. If we have a phone that supports two sim cards we can perform all the activation steps of the second account from it. In case our phone only has a sim card we will have to receive the activation message on another phone. In it, the sim card will have to be placed with the number that we want to activate in WhatsApp.
When we have received the activation code on the other cell phone, we will enter it on the phone that has the second copy of WhatsApp installed that we want to activate. After performing the operation we can remove the sim card from the other phone if we wish.
There are other applications in the Play Store that allow to carry out this operation and even phones that have the possibility of directly using two accounts of WhatsApp. Of course, we advise against using unsigned applications , at least if we are not sure that their developers are reliable. Let’s not forget that these could include malware (viruses) harmful to our device.
