Using multiple whatsapp account on a single device

The whatsapp is also based on your sim number and therefore allows only one single account for a single device. So, all you need to do is to have a second sim for your device and then install an app such as SwitchMe that allows you to log in to the devices in multiple accounts. It is similar to a log in in your desktop computer in which you will have your own system settings, apps and information.
