How to use two WhatsApp accounts in one mobile?

We're using more social media at work than before. How often have you used LinkedIn to find a client or research a rival? We're also using the same software at work and at home. Skype is a good example of that. Since Microsoft bought it, it's been rolled out as a business tool when it started life as a video calling platform for home use. WhatsApp's also the same because keeping in touch is as important for work as it is for home life. But you have to keep some separation. Anyone who's worked from home during the Covid-19 pandemic will know that separating work from home can be very difficult. Who wants to see a message from their manager when they're checking their phone with a glass of wine in hand? Having two WhatsApp accounts would put a stop to that.

Dual SIMS

Most smartphones are enabled with dual-SIM card slots. If you have two numbers, for example, one for work and one for everywhere else, you can put two SIMS into most phones. This is the simplest way of keeping work and real-life separate. You'll have two numbers, meaning two of everything. Since you have to put your phone number into WhatsApp when opening an account, it makes sense that two phone numbers is the easiest way of getting two accounts. Don't worry if you're stuck with one number only. You can keep your work and home apart.

Dual Apps

If you have a phone made by Xiaomi, Samsung, Vivo, Oppo or Huawei, you'll be able to access two WhatsApp accounts through the 'Dual Apps' or 'Dual Mode' feature (the name varies, but the feature doesn't). This is the simplest way of getting what you want. With Xiaomi for example, you just select Settings and then Dual Apps. On a Samsung, you go through Settings to Advance Features to Dual Messenger to enable to feature. With Oppo devices, you select Settings then Clone Apps, and with Vivo phones, you follow Settings to App Clone to enable two WhatsApp accounts on your smartphone.

Android Only

If you have an iPhone, you won't be able to run two WhatsApp accounts in one phone. You can only do this with Android phones. If you've downloaded WhatsApp and checked for clone or dual app modes through your settings and have drawn a blank, you can still do this. There are five apps that users recommend. We'll take a look at each.

Parallel Space

Whichever social media or instant message platforms you want to double up on, you can rely on Parallel Space to work. It creates a clone version of WhatsApp's Android app or Facebook, Instagram, Clash of the Clans, Candy Crush Saga, or whatever else you want. It's also effortless to use.

2Accounts

Most users say that 2Accounts is cleaner and better organised than Parallel Space. It works just as well, so we're not ranking it second here. As with the other four, it's just one of the top five you should try out.

Parallel U

The best thing about this app is that it doesn't hurt the phone's performance. After downloading it from Google Play Store, you'll find an app that's user-friendly and offers everything the other apps we've featured do.

Super Clone

Everything you'd expect from a cloning app is here. You can use this on WhatsApp, Snapchat, Instagram and all the other apps we've mentioned. There's an added feature with this one because you can customise the app's icon.

Multi

When you download this one from the Play Store, you'll find an app that runs as well as the others, but it had one additional feature. It comes with a private locker that allows users to lock the cloned apps.

Is it safe?

No app's one hundred per cent safe. We all know that. Of course, Android's more vulnerable than iOS, so it pays to be careful. Look at reputation ratings, read reviews on Google Play Store, and only download apps that other users recommend.
