Here's how to add a second WhatsApp account to your iPhone, but only if you have a second phone number to link it to.

WhatsApp is a very popular messaging app. So popular that you may want to have more than one account, to separate your work and personal life. WhatsApp doesn't allow you to have two accounts by default, but there are ways around the restriction.

Let's take a look at how you can get two WhatsApp accounts on one iPhone.



Use WhatsApp Business to set up a second account

Many people use the WhatsApp Business app to connect with their customers and customers. With WhatsApp, setting up a second business account is easy and free. However, the method below only works if you are using dual SIM on your iPhone or an active SIM card on another device.

First, download from the App Store. Then, perform these steps:

  • apri WhatsApp Business . Select I accept and continue to accept the Terms of Service.
  • Select Use a different number .
  • Enter the phone number of your second SIM. Touch end .
  • Select Yes to confirm the number.
  • Enter the verification code sent to your device.
  • Toccata Skip restore if a previous iCloud backup is not available.
  • Type in your name and select your business category. If your second account is for personal use, select It is not a company .
  • Toccata NEXT .
  • Select Explore to start adding more information about your business. To do this later, select Not now .

That's all! You now have a second WhatsApp account completely separate from your current one. You can start sending and receiving messages, making WhatsApp calls, creating groups and more.



Use the Whats up app to mirror a second account

If you think WhatsApp Business is too formal, an alternative app is the Whats up app. This app acts as a mirror for another device that already has an existing WhatsApp account.

First, download from the App Store. So, follow these steps:

  • Open the app Whats up and select the scheda Dual . This takes you to a mobile version of WhatsApp Web.
  • On your second device, go to WhatsApp Messenger .
  • Select Settings .
  • Toccata Collect a device to scan the QR code on your iPhone screen.

You have now set up your second WhatsApp account on Whats up. To use your first account, simply go to your iPhone's WhatsApp app as usual. Then use the Whats up app to use your second account.


The main drawback of Whats up is that it has a lot of ads. However, compared to most of the WhatsApp dual apps on the App Store, the Whats up messaging interface is perfectly suited for mobile devices.

The other apps are less user-friendly because they show the desktop version of WhatsApp Web. You'll end up having to zoom in and out to read and type your messages.

Can you get two WhatsApp accounts with the same phone number?

Unfortunately, you can't use two WhatsApp accounts connected to the same phone number at the same time.


For example, if you try to set up WhatsApp Business with your WhatsApp Messenger number, that number will be disconnected from the old app. All your WhatsApp Messenger conversations will be moved to WhatsApp Business and vice versa.

If you apply the steps for Whats up on the same number, you will only get an exact copy of your existing WhatsApp Messenger. For example, all new messages, no matter where you sent or received them, will appear on both apps.
