Mark Zuckerberg recently announced a new feature for WhatsApp that allows users to simultaneously log in with two WhatsApp accounts in a single app, addressing the challenge of managing personal and professional conversations. With this upcoming feature, users can switch between two WhatsApp accounts on one phone within the app, eliminating the need to log out, carry two phones, or worry about messaging from the wrong account.
Here’s how to set up a second WhatsApp account for either work or personal use:
- You’ll need a second phone number and SIM card, or a phone that supports multi-SIM or eSIM.
- Open your WhatsApp settings, click on the arrow next to your name, and select “Add account.” This will enable you to manage two separate accounts within the app.
- You can also customize privacy and notification settings independently for each of these accounts.
WhatsApp also issued a warning to its users, emphasizing the importance of using the official WhatsApp application and avoiding downloading imitations or fake versions. Your messages are only secure and private when using the official WhatsApp.
