I don’t know about you, but I’ve had the habit of changing my phone number for the longest time, up until a couple of years ago when I got fed up with my friends constantly asking who I was when I called them. And when you have so many phone numbers it’s difficult to talk to people on Whatsapp, a service that relies on a single phone number as a form of identification.

If you want to use multiple Whatsapp accounts there are several workarounds – some involve a third party app that you have to install, some even require you to root your phone for their method to work. I’m going to show you the simplest method I’ve found, one that involves virtually no modifications to your phone.

How to use two (or more) Whatsapp accounts on a single phone

Here’s how you do it:

#1: Go to Settings, then Users.

#2: Create a new user on your phone. The phone will then automatically switch to the new user, and if you already have a spare Google account log into it; otherwise, create a new one.

#3: Go through the steps and install Whatsapp under the new user account.

#4: Set up Whatsapp as you did the first time around.

And that’s it! This method isn’t perfect, but it gets the job done. Unfortunately, all you find online are workarounds, and until Whatsapp themselves implement an official way to do this, we’re going to have to rely on them. So after you install the second Whatsapp account on your phone you will have to actually switch users whenever you want to check Whatsapp on the first, or the second account.

Do you use more than one Whatsapp installs? If so, how quickly did you set things up using this method?
