Can you have two WhatsApp accounts on one iPhone?

 

The answer is no if you want to use two accounts on the WhatsApp app on your iPhone at the same time. However, there are alternative methods that would let you use two WhatsApp accounts on one iPhone simultaneously. Such methods would not involve using two accounts on your WhatsApp application. And for the two methods that we will discuss here will require you to install another application on your iPhone.

So, your first account would be on your WhatsApp application, and the second WhatsApp account would be from the Dual Secure Messenger PRO app. This is how we are going to have two accounts on the same phone.

“If you want to have a second WhatsApp account on your iPhone, install the Dual Secure Messenger PRO app from the App Store.”

Before you can proceed any further, there is something you should know. Your second WhatsApp account should be open on another device. The main concept of this feature is similar to the WhatsApp Web service, which lets you access your phone’s WhatsApp account on your computer.

 

So, for this method to work, your second WhatsApp account should be open on another device first. Then together with your primary account on the WhatsApp application on your iPhone, you’ll have two WhatsApp accounts at the same time.

  • First, install and open the free WhatsApp Business app on your iPhone.
