With the advancement in technology in the 20th century, the world has become a Global Village. Communication today is more straightforward than it ever was-in fact it is just a tap away.
WhatsApp is one of the most popular social apps that lets you text, call, or video chat from anywhere in the world. As of 2020, around 2 billion people are using WhatsApp because it’s free and fast.
Since it is so widely used, it is common to have multiple WhatsApp accounts. People use more than one account to cater personal as well as professional needs. Most workaholics set up their WhatsApp accounts on the desktop to minimize any distractions from the cell phone. And stay more oriented if you are also someone who wants to use multiple WhatsApp accounts on desktop but have no clue how, we are here to guide you through the way.
Using The Same Browser To Set Up Multiple WhatsApp Account
First things first, make sure you have your cell phone with a stable internet connection and updated version of WhatsApp, with you.
- Open any browser of your choice (Chrome, Firefox, Safari)
- Go to http://web.whatsapp.com – A QR code will appear on your screen.
- Open your phone, go to Menu/Settings, tap on WhatsApp web, and scan the QR code on the desktop.
The WhatsApp account on the desktop will now be synced with that on your phone.
Now to set up a different WhatsApp account, open an incognito or in-private window on your browser. Go to the same web address that is http://web.whatsapp.com.
- And scan the QR code for the account you want to use. Once you have completed the steps you are ready to use both your accounts on the desktop.
It is a convenient method to set up two or even more WhatsApp accounts on your desktop. You can exchange texts on WhatsApp while working on your desktop.
But once you log off, you will lose your WhatsApp session as well as the login details. In simple words, you will have to set up your WhatsApp account every time you want to login.
Using Different Browsers To Set Up Multiple WhatsApp Accounts
If you do not wish to go through the hassle of scanning the code repeatedly to use your WhatsApp account, use a different browser. Once you have logged in to one account through a particular browser, say Chrome, use a different browser to log in to your other WhatsApp account. The steps are simple: go to https://web.whatsapp.com/ and scan the QR code.
If you already have access to different browsers, this will only take a minute.
Now you have two different WhatsApp accounts set up on your desktop. You can use them both simultaneously. But what if you want to set up a third account? Don’t stress; we are not going to judge you for having a third WhatsApp account.
There are several apps, and chrome extensions you can download that will let you use multiple WhatsApp accounts on desktop.
Multi Messenger App
On your browser, search for a multi-messenger app and add it as your chrome extensions. This app gives you easy access to all social apps, including Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp.
- Once you have Multi-messenger as your chrome extension, could you open it and click on the WhatsApp icon? It will direct you to a QR code.
- Open the account you want to set up, on your phone and scan the QR code.
As soon as the code is scanned, you can use WhatsApp on a desktop.
It is another chrome extension that can be used for multiple logins on the same website. Find it through your browser and download it. Once it has been added as a chrome extension, please open it and search for WhatsApp Web through the browser. Now on your phone, open the account you want to scan and sync it by scanning the QR code. It is easy to use and free. Also, with this extension, you can set up as many WhatsApp accounts as you like.
