Hi

I've had to add a second SIM to my personal phone for work.
I use WhatsApp for work and would like to have a separate WhatsApp account for my work SIM (physical card) on my Samsung S20+5G.
Is this possible? How do I do it?
Have just moved my personal mobile account to eSIM as is a Pay Monthly. Work number is PAYG.
Thanks in advance

I don't know if you can use same WhatsApp but two numbers on the same phone yes, you need to download the second copy of WhatsApp where you can select which contact can go to the second sim/WhatsApp

Thanks Leo. I have set up dual accounts and cloned WhatsApp. Just waiting for work people to send me a message to check it works 👍

I had forgotten that apps can be cloned, but I put all my work stuff in the secure folder (Outlook, Slack, WhatsApp, etc).

This prevents my workman's personal.stuff mingling with each other.
