WhatsApp: How to clone the app on Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei cell phones?


 

The Facebook-owned instant messaging platform has the feature available on these smartphone brands. The only requirement is that they have the operating system Android 10 or higher. Look at the instructions to carry out the procedure.


WhatsApp is the most used instant messaging platform in the world, it has more than 2 billion users, and despite that, it has functions that are little known among the people who use it.


Within the app owned by Facebook, there are more and more new features, such as the option to clone the application quickly and easily on your device with the Android operating system.


Why would anyone want to clone their WhatsApp? This function can be used to enter the numbers you want on your device, although it should be noted that only on some cell phones you can enter the application with two different accounts.


How to clone WhatsApp?


To carry out this trick, it is not necessary to download any third-party programs, which usually have consequences for users. The only requirement to carry out this procedure is to have a device with Android 10 or higher. The steps are the following:

  • Open the "settings" option on your cell phone.

  • Go to "Applications".

  • Click on "Duplicate or Clone Apps ".

  • Instantly you will see a list of the other applications that you can duplicate.

  • Select WhatsApp and once you have done it, restart your device.

  • Then go to the second icon that appears in the application.

  • You will have to enter your cell phone number and you will immediately receive a verification code.

  • After following these steps you will have cloned your WhatsApp

This function is only available only on Samsung, Xiaomi, and Huawei cell phones with Android.


The dangers of cloning apps


There are different monitoring applications on the market that promise tools to increase the security of devices, allowing their owners to manage them remotely.


Many of these apps offer a cloning or tracking function, but in reality, they only use the interface of an application to use a function already available in WhatsApp itself, such as the use of WhatsApp Web.


In addition, their downloads bring with them privacy vulnerabilities, as they track the activity of online contacts, providing a certain level of information, such as a history of when the contacts were online and offline.


The risk they carry is similar to that of browser extensions: a code generated from clicks, which will direct you to an address that offers false services related to YouTube, such as increasing the number of subscribers to a channel, the number of likes, favorites, and others.


The aggravating factor, in this case, is that the risk is linked to the cell phone, where most people keep the largest amount of sensitive data.
