If you are one of those that love to use WhatsApp and have more than one device, you have probably wondered why you can’t use your app on two devices at the same time. Not long time ago, WhatsApp allowed users to use their app on a PC at the same time, but they still don’t allow you to do it on two different smartphones or tablets devices. In this post, we are going to tell you how to use the same WhatsApp account on two devices.
First thing you need to do is have both of your devices rooted. Remember that rooting is a process that allows you to give special permissions to apps and lets you modify further your phone. The app you are going to need to do this is called Titanium Backup, and it needs rooting permission. Rooting process varies from phone model and you should only do it if you are sure you want to do it. We have other posts about this, so you can check them out.
I got a rooted phone, now how do I use the same WhatsApp account on two devices?
You are going to need to do a backup of your WhatsApp app on your main device. The reason for this is that by copying the exact same application to your other device, it will recognize it like the same phone number and account.
Open your Titanium Backup app > Go to Restore/Backup > Select only your WhatsApp app > Select Backup! and accept.
This will create three files in your storage memory. They will be stored in the folder called Titanium Backup inside your phone’s storage. To use the same WhatsApp account on two devices you will need to copy these three files to your other device.
Make sure you copy your three backup files into your other device’s storage memory. You can do this by uploading to a cloud service or by using a SD card to pass it between phones.
After copying your files:
Open your Titanium Backup application on your other device > Go to Restore/Backup > Select Whatsapp > Select Restore and accept.
If it didn’t work, the reason might be that you’re using another Gmail account on your second device. Log into the same Gmail account and try again
Since this is not an official process, it might not work for some devices. If it doesn’t work, just uninstall your backup and app on your second device. With this, you are ready to use the same WhatsApp account on two devices.
