WhatsApp: How to have two accounts open on the same phone

Posted on Posted in News

WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging services and has even been transformed for some into an indispensable work tool.

But one of its weaknesses is that it does not allow having two phones in the same application. For this reason, some people who have personal cell phone and work, must load with two telephones.

The good news is that you can count on two accounts on smartphones with the Google operating system. The first thing to know is that you need two sim cards with two different phone numbers.

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.

For Apple phone users the news is not good since you can not have two WhatsApp accounts simultaneously. Unless you jailbreak (unlock) the phone. Which is not recommended because of the insecurity and instability for the iPhone that entails that action.


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 you run Parallel Space you can activate the second WhatsApp account. In the case of having a phone that supports two sim cards you can perform all the activation steps of the second account from it. In case the phone has only one sim card, the activation message must be received on another phone. In it, the sim card will have to be placed with the number that you want to activate in WhatsApp.

When you have received the activation code on the other cell phone, enter it on the phone that has the second copy of WhatsApp that you want to activate. After performing the operation you can remove the sim card from the other phone if we wish.
