Tutorial for using two numbers on Whatsapp simultaneously without rooting

WhatsApp is one of the most
popular messaging service with
hundreds of millions of users.
The company hasn’t introduced
a PC client for WhatsApp yet and
the limitation to use WhatsApp
with only one phone number on
a device, makes it pretty
unusable on dual-SIM phones.
Though, one can anytime give
their number to whomever they
want to connect with over
WhatsApp but that isn’t
convenient for users who
manage different numbers for
their business and personal
contacts. Lately, majority of high-
end Android smartphones

with
dual-SIM support are being
introduced prominently,
specially in markets like India
where users tend to use
multiple mobile networks.
Now if you have a Dual-SIM
Android phone and want to use
WhatsApp on both the phone
numbers, then there is an easy
workaround for that. This is
possible using OGWhatsApp, a
modded version of official
WhatsApp for Android that lets
you run dual WhatsApp account
on a single Android phone. It
works together at one time, has
exact same UI, and works
without rooting. The app is
courtesy of XDA Developers.
NOTE: You can use 2 WhatsApp
accounts simultaneously with 2
different phone numbers on one
Android phone or tablet (with
3G facility), only if it supports
dual-SIM or if you swap in one
out of the 2 SIMs. That’s
because WhatsApp verifies your
phone number during setup.
Tutorial – Using Dual WhatsApp
Account on an Android Device
1. Take a backup of your
WhatsApp messages and data.
2. Clear WhatsApp Data
(Settings > Apps > Downloaded
> WhatsApp)
3. Using a file manager, navigate
to sdcard directory and rename /
sdcard/WhatsApp folder to /
sdcard/OGWhatsApp
4. Uninstall the WhatsApp app.
Then install OGWhatsApp using
it APK

OGWApp?tab=Download
5. While setting up
OGWhatsApp, enter the old
number that you were using
earlier with official version of
WhatsApp. It will provide an
option to restore the data,
restore if you want.
6. Then install the official
version of WhatsApp Messenger
app from Google playstore.
While configuring it, enter the
new number and verify.
That’s all! You can now use 2
WhatsApp accounts on one
device and both of them will
work independently.
OGWhatsApp will be limited to
first number and WhatsApp to
second one.
