BREAKING: WhatsApp Now Allows Same Account To Be Logged In On Up To Four Phones

Mark Zuckerberg, the head of Meta, announced that WhatsApp users can now log into the same account on up to four different devices simultaneously.

This new feature is expected to make it easier for users to switch between devices without having to constantly log in and out of their accounts.


The update has started rolling out to users globally and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks, according to WhatsApp.

Mark Zuckerberg, who owns WhatsApp, made the announcement on his Facebook page on Tuesday.

Starting today, you can log into the same WhatsApp account on up to four phones,’ he said.


In reply, one user joked ‘that’s gonna be a problem for jealous couples’, while another said ‘I try to log on my boyfriends account, will he know?’

In response to such concerns, WhatsApp said users can check any other devices connected to their account and log them out remotely from their phone.

WhatsApp, first released in 2009, was designed to send the equivalent of text messages but via the internet.


For this reason, a WhatsApp account has always been closely tied to an individual phone number, although more recently it’s become possible to link several non-phone devices to an account too.

In 2021, WhatsApp started letting users connect up to four additional non-phone devices such as PCs and tablets to their account, independently of a phone.

This means a user has been able to have, for example, their phone, two tablets and two PCs all running the same single WhatsApp account.


This feature had rolled out globally by 2022, but now WhatsApp is going a step further by introducing the ability to use the same WhatsApp account on multiple phones too.

While the amount of devices has not increased (one primary phone with up to four companion devices), extra phones can now be included in the mix too.

WhatsApp has said each linked device will connect to WhatsApp independently, ensuring personal messages, media and calls are all synced.


If the ‘primary’ smartphone – defined as the one that originally had your WhatsApp account on it – is inactive for a long period, it will automatically log you out of all ‘companion’ phones.
