    Preliminary notes

    Before getting to the heart of this tutorial and explaining how to use WhatsApp on two different devices, I must make a very important premise: WhatsApp does not allow simultaneous connection of the same account on different devices: if you try to log in with your number on a copy of WhatsApp installed on another smartphone or tablet than the one you already use, you will see a message that will notify you of the disconnection of the account on the device used previously with the same address.



    In this regard, the only method allowed for have WhatsApp on two devices is to use the functionality Web WhatsApp, which allows you to use WhatsApp via a browser by connecting it via Wi-Fi to the smartphone (or tablet) on which the app was originally installed. In the next paragraphs, I will show you the procedures to follow if you have an Android smartphone or tablet, an iPhone, an iPad or a computer.

In this guide, I used the free app Mozilla Firefox.



    After starting the browser, tap onicon [] and put a check mark in the box next to the wording Desktop mode, in the context menu you see. Now, in the address bar, type web.whatsapp.com and then press the button Submit on the keyboard.
