Use your WhatsApp account on two phones: all possible ways
Before seeing the different ways that exist to have the same WhatsApp account in two devices, it is necessary to take into account that, officially, WhatsApp does not contemplate this possibility.
In fact, on the WhatsApp FAQ page, the company itself explains that this option does not exist, and in case of trying to use the same account on several devices bypassing this restriction, our account can be suspended. You better keep that in mind before proceeding with the process.
With WhatsApp Web
The most effective way to use WhatsApp from two devices at the same time It is through WhatsApp Web, the version of the messaging app for tablets and computers.
Although it is a tool mainly intended to be used through desktop computers, you can enter WhatsApp Web from your mobile. You just have to follow these steps:
Open the secondary mobile browser and, from the menu, activate the “desktop mode” or “computer version”.
Access the [página de WhatsApp Web]https://web.whatsapp.com). Log in with the account associated with the main device
Now, you already have WhatsApp on two mobiles at the same time.
As you can imagine, this solution is not the most convenient of all. At the end of the day, WhatsApp Web is designed to be used through a computer, and not from the mobile.
Therefore, chat using this version from a mobile not the most comfortable way. In addition, you will be forced to keep the main device connected at all times if you want to use your WhatsApp account from the secondary device.
With third-party apps
The possibility of use applications that allow you to have the same WhatsApp account on two devices. But the reality is that these types of apps are highly recommended for many reasons.
The main reason is that each and every one of them is just a version of WhatsApp Web disguised as an application, and therefore you can perfectly save the space and resources that this type of apps require, and follow the steps listed above to use WhatsApp Web on mobile.
Besides that, sharing your WhatsApp authentication data is never recommended with third-party applications, especially if they have not been created by official sources associated with Facebook and WhatsApp.

With this application, you can clone your account WhatsApp to use it on a second device or tablet. One of its advantages is that slightly modify the WhatsApp Web interface to make it usable on mobiles, although it inherits the same drawbacks present in the web version of WhatsApp when used on a device other than a computer or tablet.
Another disadvantage of this app is that it is necessary to create a user account to be able to use it.
Another of the apps that you can use is WhatsWeb Cloner, which as its name suggests, enables an instance of WhatsApp Web on the secondary mobile so you can use the same account in two terminals.
In addition to that, the application has some additions that may be of some use, such as the possibility of downloading states, freeing up WhatsApp space by deleting the files stored by the application, and other similar tools.
The most recommended option: wait for the native function
If you want use WhatsApp on two devices at the same time, but you do not want to run the risk of WhatsApp suspending your account or the WhatsApp Web solution does not seem enough to you, it is best to wait for the native function that will allow you to use the same account on multiple devices.
Everything seems to point to this function will be ready sooner than later, and will allow use the same account, officially, on up to four different devices.
It may not be as convenient a solution as that of applications such as Telegram, which allows us to use our account on any device, without any type of limit and with native applications for the vast majority of platforms. But at least it will no longer be necessary to find alternative solutions.
