Using a WhatsApp Account on Multiple Android Phones

We know how to use WhatsApp on Android but do you know how to use a single WhatsApp account on multiple phones? For some of you, it may sound like a joke because WhatsApp can only be used on a single phone at a time. And that's true, if you log in to a WhatsApp account from a different device then it requires you to log out the first phone. Yes, it doesn't happen in the case when you are using WhatsApp Web on PC.

Because WhatsApp Web has been programmed to simulate a WhatsApp account without logging out the parent WhatsApp phone. Well, we are not going to use WhatsApp Web for using a single WhatsApp account on multiple phones. Although WhatsApp Web is not fully capable of that. We are going to use Whatscan which will allow us to simulate a WhatsApp account on many different phones. Let's begin.

What is Whatscan?

Whatscan is a tool basically in which a QR code displays that when scanned with the WhatsApp Web scanner, it gets access to that WhatsApp. It is not different than the Whatsapp Web for PC, the thing that separates it is its ability to simulate a WhatsApp account multiple times on different phones. While simulating, you will have full access to chats, messages, and media files that shared in the chats. 

In the latest version of Whatscan, you can now view the profile picture as well as the status of all contacts including the WhatsApp account owner status. The app is pretty versatile and supports all devices i.e Tablet, Android, PC, etc.

How You Can Use a WhatsApp Account on Multiple Devices?

You probably have been suggested before about using a WhatsApp account on multiple phones with the help of dual cloning apps. These type of apps allows you to use two accounts on a single phone. Also, WhatsApp Web allows accessing WhatsApp on PC without logging out the parent device. Well, these methods are not that efficient when it comes to using WhatsApp on multiple devices.


Whatscan provides better features and accessibility as compared to WhatsApp Web or any other dual account apps. Using Whatscan, you can simulate the same WhatsApp account on as many devices you like, there is no limitation. Its working pattern is very much similar to WhatsApp Web, although the process is the same for connecting to a WhatsApp. 

Once you open the app for the first time, it will display a QR code like WhatsApp Web. And when you scan that QR code with the WhatsApp Web scanner feature on your phone's WhatsApp, you will be able to access that WhatsApp on two devices. Let us show you how you can do that.

Whatscan: Steps to Use a Single WhatsApp on Multiple Phones

Before we get started, I want you to know that you can follow the same steps listed below to use Whatscan on any device i.e Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, etc. Yes, Whatscan is available on all the popular platforms, and the best part, it's free to use. Here are the steps you need to follow:

  1. Firstly, download & install Whatscan on your phone or PC.
  2. Open it and make the random QR code display on the screen.
  3. Now, open WhatsApp on the phone that you want to spy. Go to menu>WhatsApp Web.
  4. Upon clicking on WhatsApp Web, the QR code scanner will open. If you find any device already connected, click on the “+” icon to continue.
  5. Scan the QR code displaying on Whatscan with the WhatsApp Web scanner on phone. Just place the QR code under the scanner frame to connect quickly.
  6. Once connected, you will get access to that WhatsApp account on your Whatscan.
  7. That’s it.

As long as you'll not log out or the parent WhatsApp user does not log out, you will have access to that account. And the notification will be appearing on the user's phone that you are accessing the account. Also, the user will be able to read your device name and when you were last active from his WhatsApp>menu>WhatsApp Web.

Whatscan Features

Here are some of the best features of Whatscan that can help you get the most benefit.

  • Dual WhatsApp

As it simulates another WhatsApp, it doesn’t create conflict with the installed WhatsApp on a phone. Hence, you can use Dual WhatsApp using Whatscan trouble-free

  • Complete Access To Chats

Once you are accessing a WhatsApp account from Whatscan, you see all the messages, media files that are shared in the conversation. You can even reply to any chat, delete messages, and download media files that are shared.

  • Auto Sync Chat Messages

You don’t have to refresh any chat, you’ll get updated as soon as the source WhatsApp receives or sends messages.

  • App Lock


As you are using it to spectate someone’s WhatsApp account, you don’t want others to find it on your phone. In this case, you can use the in-built app lock feature from Whatscan>settings>Enable Password.

In my opinion, Whatscan is better than any other dual-account app because it provides full control and made specifically for WhatsApp. So, if you use any other app to use two WhatsApp account on a single phone or a single WhatsApp on multiple phones then you can try Whatscan.
