What’s better than having a WhatsApp account? Well, of course, it’s having two. WhatsApp has announced a new feature that allows users to have two WhatsApp accounts logged in at the same time on the same device. This feature is aimed at users who want to switch between their work and personal accounts without logging out or carrying two phones. This new feature was announced by Mark Zuckerberg.

In order to get it first, update the application either using Apple’s App Store or Google’s Play Store. For now, the update is available only for Android users.
How will the dual WhatsApp account feature work?
- According to WhatsApp, users will need a second phone number and SIM card, or a phone that supports multi-SIM or eSIM, to set up a second account.
- Users can then open their WhatsApp settings, click on the arrow next to their name, and click “Add account“.
- Users can then customize their privacy and notification settings for each account separately
WhatsApp also reminded users to only use the official WhatsApp app and not download imitations or fake versions as a way of getting more accounts on their phones. WhatsApp said that only the official app ensures the security and privacy of users’ messages.

WhatsApp has been pushing out new features aggressively, including the new Passkeys feature, which will make the app safer and easier to use. The feature essentially lets the user opt for biometric protection for their application. Instead of going through SMS two-factor authentication, the user can go for a face scan or fingerprint scan.
