Hi

I'm a few days away from my OGWhatsapp app expiring and am desperate to find an alternative as I travel constantly between countries and having two active whatsapp accounts on my phone is an invaluable part of my life.

I've stumbled across some alternatives from this site:

Namely, i'm looking at ENWhatsapp and SAWhatsapp. I'm wondering whether these apks are ok as I fear installing any sort of malware or SMS trojan on my Samsung S4 Mini Duos i9192.

Many thanks

Thanks MuD-GMZ. That seems to work well. Only thing is that I have to switch between the two accounts manually to see if i've received messages. A little bit annoying.

ppsa, is xxWhatsapp safe? I get the same pre-installation access warnings as SAWhatsapp and ENWhatsapp. What particularly worries me is the access the app has to sending and receiving SMS's (see attached screenshot). Not sure this if this normal though considering that I guess the app needs a whatsapp verification code via sms to activate it.

What do you think?


Many thanks!

In the end I tried ENWhatsapp + other variants and none of them seem to work. I get an error during the installation process that oddly states that '"the app expired on May 18th 2060"!!

I am, though, using a Playstore app called Disa Beta:

It has a strange UI but it allows me to do exactly what I was looking for: have 2 whatsapp accounts simultaneously active on my dual sim phone.
