My phone just went broken last night, and I have another but I don't want to change the sim card, so I'm wondering if its possible to run 2 numbers on the same phone.

I have heard there is a chance creating a new user and installing whats app again under that new user, will this work? I don't want to lost a couple of work groups that are important.


Ya, you can do it, It is very simple and easy to use and in my opinion, there are two ways to do. As we all know Whatsapp officially does not allow you to do.

Option 1 - Use a third-party app like parallel space or others. These apps partition your system memory and all the machinery and convey your single phone into two phones.

Option 2 - You can use third party WhatsApp apps like GB Whatsapp. This is the mod version of the official WhatsApp. You can visit the official GBWhatsapp download page and install it.


There are multiple possibilities:

  • Some stock/custom ROMs (e.g. MIUI) let you create a new user with non-zero id by utilizing Multiple Users / Work Profile feature of Android. You can switch between accounts and almost all installed user apps can be duplicated with unique settings/data for each user.
  • You can use some dual account app; a kind of OS level virtualization or containerization. There are numerous on Play Store like Parallel Space. But personally I don't recommend this option as these apps are a burden on resources and may slow down the device or reduce battery timing. Most of those require too many permissions, seem focused on ads, user stats, analytics and tracking for monetizing.
    Shelter is an open source (FOSS) app if you go for this option.
  • Another option is to use a modded WhatsApp with different package name e.g. GBWhatsApp. That will work in parallel with official WhatsApp release. Be aware of illegality and malware when going for non-official apps.

Step 1: Install WhatsApp from Google Play Store and then register your primary number.

Step 2: If you already have a WhatsApp account running on your phone, skip step 1 and go to your phone’s setting.

Step 3: Navigate to Dual App/Clone app/App Twin and tap on it.

Step 4: You will now see a list of apps that can be cloned, tap on the WhatsApp option and then select install Step 5: Set up the second WhatsApp account and open the secondary app.

Step 6: Now tap on Agree and Continue while also allowing WhatsApp to access your files as well as contacts.

Step 7: Now, you will be asked to register your contact number. Just remember to add your secondary number and then, you will be able to run dual WhatsApp accounts on one smartphone.


If that is possible, it is not easy, but it is possible.

It is best to use an improved WhatsApp mod, but with a different package, called GBWhatsApp https://www.descargarplus.com/whatsapp-plus. It works in Parallel with the latest version, you just have to download the installable file, APK.
