Let’s say that you have two numbers, one for work and one for your personal use on a dual-sim Android. Given the popularity of WhatsApp, you may want to use two accounts for chatting purposes. But the original WhatsApp client doesn’t allow two signed accounts at the same time, so constantly changing between accounts surely is not a viable option. You can consider modded versions like OGWhatsApp or FakeWhatsApp, but aside from being shady and unreliable, can also get your WhatsApp account banned (especially after the latest update).
This method is completely safe and it involves installing Disa, an official Google Play App. The advantages of Disa is that is free, doesn’t require rooting and most importantly it works flawlessly.
How to Use Two WhatsApp Accounts on the Same Android Phone
1. Uninstall WhatsApp from your Android device.
2. Install Disa from Google Play Store.
3. Open Disa, touch the menu icon and select Settings.
4. Make sure to tick the Advanced box and then select Add Services.
5. Select WhatsApp and wait until the plug-in is installed, then touch Restart.
6. Configure WhatsApp‘s plug-in by selecting the warning icon located the top of the screen.
7. Insert Name & Number then hit Next.
8. When Disa will ask for the preferred verifying method select via SMS.
9. Enter the code received via SMS and hit Submit.
10. One done, one to go. Reinstall WhatsApp and sign-in with your second account. You can choose to restore from backup so that your content isn’t lost.
11. That’s it. Enjoy using 2 WhatsApp accounts on the same phone without the risk of ban!
