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 the simultaneous connection of the same account on different devices: if you try to log in with your number on one copy of Whatsapp installed on a different mobile phone or tablet than the one you already use, you will see a message notifying you of the account disconnection on the previously used device with the same address.

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