How to Clone WhatsApp on Another Phone

Agnes W Linn

We know you care about your loved ones. That’s why you’re concerned about what’s on their phone and who they’re chatting with. And that’s especially true if they use WhatsApp, the popular social media app that lets anyone chat with anyone, just by knowing their phone number.

Just like text messages, WhatsApp is completely open. Once you download it onto your phone, you can message anyone in the world just by typing in their phone number. If they use WhatsApp, they’ll receive the message. And that means a stranger could contact your child, strike up a conversation, and, well, we’ll let you use your imagination.

With 2 billion users, that’s a lot of potential unwanted interactions. Thankfully, if you invest in a WhatsApp clone app, you can make sure they’re staying safe.

Method #1: Get mSpy — an Optimal WhatsApp Clone Solution

You can go through the hassle of complex WhatsApp cloning to see their messages. But why jump through hoops when you can duplicate WhatsApp with mSpy?

New to mSpy? It’s a smart monitoring solution that lets you peek into their phone and see what they’re up to online.

Here’s how it works. First, you need to purchase mSpy. There are multiple subscription options for whatever phone you want to monitor, including iPhone and Android.

Method #2: Log in on a Desktop

So, you what to know how to clone WhatsApp without knowing how to do anything complex? Then you might want to consider using WhatsApp’s own desktop app. By scanning a QR code using their phone’s camera, you can mirror all their conversations on your desktop. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Download WhatsApp on any Mac or PC.
  2. Open the WhatsApp desktop app.
  3. Open WhatsApp on the phone that has the WhatsApp conversations you want to clone.
  4. Tap the little Settings icon.
  5. Tap Linked Devices.
  6. Point your phone at the QR code that’s displayed on your desktop.

Now that you know how to clone WhatsApp the relatively easy way, it’s important to note that for this method to work, you’ll need to have access to their phone. And technically, they can see that you’ve cloned their WhatsApp by going to Linked Devices in the WhatsApp app on their phone.

Method #3: Try WhatsApp Backup

Don’t have a desktop to act as a WhatsApp clone? Don’t worry, you can use WhatsApp’s built-in chat backup functionality to see what they’re saying in their chats. Here’s how it works:

  1. Open WhatsApp on the phone with the WhatsApp you want to clone.
  2. Tap the little Settings icon.
  3. Tap Chats.
  4. Tap Chat Backup.
  5. Tap Back Up Now.
  6. Sit back while chat backup does its thing.

This method is great, but you’ll need to know either their iCloud account or their Google account. You’ll obviously also need their phone password to get into WhatsApp.

The WhatsApp Clone Works on Any Device

Whether you’re looking to clone WhatsApp iPhone conversations or find out what they’re chatting about on Android, mSpy has you covered. Just log in to your Control Panel, and the WhatsApp clone app shows you what they’re saying, who they’re saying it to, and when they’ve said it.

You can also see any pictures or videos they’ve sent and received on WhatsApp, so you’ll always be in the know.

mSpy is More Than Just a WhatsApp Clone

We already touched on how mSpy can show you messages in pretty much any social media chat they might use. But mSpy is way more than the perfect way to clone WhatsApp Android users love.

mSpy also lets you see their location on a map, get alerted when they come and go, and even get notified when they use a controversial word in their conversations or in search. And you’ll be able to see their search history, read their email, look at their text messages, view their calendar, and so much more. Check it out.

Before You Start Cloning WhatsApp

Is it legal to copy WhatsApp conversations? If the device you want to clone WhatsApp from belongs to your kid, they’re under 18, and they live under your roof, it’s legal to clone their WhatsApp chats without them knowing. Laws vary from country to country, so we recommend checking your own local laws before proceeding.

  • Does mspy premium give you access to the targets WhatsApp from the time of login or you can see all their older messages.

    • Hi, Jes! You can see messages that will start coming in after the app’s been installed on the device.

  • Do I have to be able to either have access to device needing monitoring? Or know their login info for any of this to work on iPhone?

    • Hello! Yes, you need to either download it directly on the device or link it using the device’s iCloud credentials.

    • Hi Sam,

      Yes, you can see the messages, but not the ones deleted before the installation of mSpy. After you install it and activate the Keylogger, you will be able to see all the messages, even deleted ones.

  • My daughters phone is always by her side. How much time is needed or how fast does the installation take on the target phone? If I am not able to access a target phone long enough to install is there other alternatives that may take less time?

    • Hi Debbie,

      To install it fast enough, please check out the installation guide in our help centre (depending on the phone model). With good internet connection, it only takes 5 minutes to install.

  • I can’t get old of wife’s phone and it as had passcode changed . And iCloud and other passcode changed so can’t mSpy her phone

    • Hi Sean,

      You need to have access to the unlocked phone for a short time to be able to track it. This is a Parenting App. Therefore, it is illegal to track adult people without their consent.

    • Hi Fathia,

      Unfortunately you need to have access to the target phone to be able to track your child. If you have their phone number, you can try an alternative like, but it has much less features than mSpy.

  • I just got rid of spylx because all it was getting from the iCloud backup was contacts! No location no WhatsApp they refunded me only after lots of excuses and a threat to chargeback. Will this track my other phone with location running the latest iOS? Thanks

    • Hi!

      Unfortunately, you need to have access to the target device for a few minutes at least. If you don’t, you can check out an alternative like It has fewer features but is easier to install.
