WhatsApp is still used by a large number of people in India and is a go-to app for messaging and video or voice calls. There are people who want to use two different WhatsApp accounts on one phone, but are unable to do that. Those who have a dual SIM phone will have to choose one number to use WhatsApp as there is no option to have a WhatsApp account with two phone numbers.

If users try to frequently switch their WhatsApp account between different devices, then their mobile number may be blocked from re-verifying the account. So, if you can’t repeatedly switch between different devices and numbers, how can you use two different WhatsApp accounts on a single phone?

There is an easy way to use dual WhatsApp apps on a device and for this, you just need to follow a few simple steps. These days, a lot of phones offer a parallel app feature, which can create a duplicate app of the one you want. Every smartphone from different brands has the same feature, but with a different name. Read on to know more about this.
