Can You Have 2 Snapchat Accounts? - How to Add and Use Them

How Can You Have 2 Snapchat Accounts?

There are several ways to use multiple Snapchat accounts.

The simplest method is to use the Snapchat app to create a secondary public profile.

Then, two will appear instead of the one account appearing on the log-in screen.

You can choose between the two however you like.

If this doesn’t work for you, there are specific apps you can use to create a second Snapchat account, such as:

  • Parallel Space
  • Dual Space
  • Super Clone

You’ll learn how to use these apps and create a secondary Snapchat account.

But first, the simplest solution is to use Snapchat to create another account.

1. Create a 2nd Snapchat account through the Snapchat app

First, log off from your main Snapchat account.

Log into your main Snapchat account
Log into your main Snapchat account.

Once you enter the app, tap on the Bitmoji icon in the top-left corner.

This will take you to your Profile.

Snapchat account settings
Tap on the Settings icon

Once you’re in your profile, look for the Gear icon in the top-right corner.

Tap on it to go to Settings.

Snapchat Settings and logout
Snapchat Settings and logout

In the Settings, scroll down until you see the Log Out button.

Tap on it to log out of your Snapchat account.

Log out from Snapchat account
Log out from your Snapchat account.

When asked to confirm the log-off procedure, tap “Log Out” again.

Now, you should be taken to the log-in screen.

Sign up for a new Snapchat account
Sign up for a new Snapchat account

Tap the Sign-Up button to create a secondary Snapchat account.

You’ll be asked for a name, date of birth, and password for your account.

Lastly, you’ll need to enter an email address or phone number associated with your Snapchat account.

Remember that you can’t use the email address/phone number associated with your existing Snapchat account.

You need to use a new email address or phone number.

If you don’t have a spare email address or phone number, you can’t create a secondary Snapchat account using this method.

The same applies to the following solutions.

You’ll need a different verification method (email address/phone number) for your second account.

2. Use Parallel Space to create a 2nd Snapchat account

Download the Parallel Space app from Google Apps or Play Store.

Download the Parallel Space App
Download the Parallel Space App

Then, open the app.

Open the Parallel App
Open the Parallel App

Once you’re there, press Continue to move on.

You may have to install the 64-bit version depending on your version of Snapchat.

Either way, once you press Continue, you’ll be taken to the main Parallel app window.

Start using the Parallel Space app
Start using the Parallel Space app

Once you’re there, tap START to begin.

Select Snapchat from the Parallel App

This is your main station.

Here, you can clone apps and make multiple accounts for each on the same device.

Select Snapchat and tap on “Add to Parallel Space” to clone Snapchat.

Open Snacphat using the Parallel app
Open Snapchat using the Parallel app

Then, tap on Snapchat in the new window again.

This will open the Snapchat app, where you can create a different account.

Your old one won’t even appear in this version of the app.

The Parallel Space Snapchat will only show the newly-created account.

If you want to access your old account, go to Snapchat from its main app.

Remember that you’ll still need to use a different email address or phone number to create the new account.

Your old credentials are already in Snapchat’s databases and are associated with your old account.

You can’t use them for a new Snapchat user account while the old one is still active.

3. Use Dual Space to open a 2nd account on Snapchat

Download Dual Space from Play Store or Google Apps.

Install the Dual Space App
Install the Dual Space App

Once you install it, open Dual Space.

Open Snapchat on the Dual Space App
Open Snapchat on the Dual Space App

After going through the Terms of Service, you’ll reach the main page of Dual Space.

Here, you can create an alternative version of any app, including Snapchat.

If Snapchat isn’t on your list, tap the Plus button to add it.

If it’s on your list, tap the Snapchat symbol.

This will take you to the log-in screen, where you can create a new account on Snapchat.

Like with Parallel Space, you’ll need to use different credentials for the new account.

4. Use Super Clone to create a 2nd Snapchat account

Download Super Clone from the App Store or Play Store.

Install Super Clone to use 2 Snapchat accounts
Install Super Clone to use 2 Snapchat accounts

Open it, and you’ll enter the main screen after you get through the documentation.

Open the Super Clone app
Open the Super Clone app

Tap on the Plus button to clone a new app.

There are no pre-cloned apps on this app. You’ll have to search for Snapchat on your own.

Find Snapchat in the Super Clone app
Find Snapchat in the Super Clone app

Look for Snapchat and tap on it.

Among your other apps, it may be in the Hot Cloned app category or below.

Once you tap on it, the app will create a clone of Snapchat.

Wait for the process to finish.

Start using multiple Snapchat accounts in the Super Clone app
Start using multiple Snapchat accounts in the Super Clone app

Once done, you can tap on START to be redirected to Snapchat.

There, you can create a secondary Snapchat account.

If you’re using an iPhone, you can use Snapchat++ and TutuApp if Parallel Space; the other apps don’t work.

Conclusion

More and more people have started creating a second account on social media networks.

Some have separate work and personal accounts, while others do it to prevent being hacked.

If your main account gets hacked or is restricted for some time, how will you keep in touch with your followers?

That’s where your secondary account comes into play.

To create a secondary Snapchat account, you can do it from the main app by selecting Sign Up.

If that doesn’t work, use one of the abovementioned apps, like Parallel Space, Dual Space, or Super Clone.

FAQ

Can you log into 2 Snapchat accounts simultaneously?

Yes and no.

If you don’t use a third-party app to clone Snapchat and create a new account, you’ll need a separate device to connect to your other account.

One phone can connect to one Snapchat account.

That’s it.

But if you’re using an app like Parallel Space, you can connect to the two Snapchat accounts on the same device.

Use the normal Snapchat app to connect to your main account and the Parallel Space Snapchat to connect to your other account.

Snapchat won’t know you’re using a cloning app to access two accounts simultaneously.

Most importantly, cloning apps are not illegal.

What’s illegal is how you’re using those two accounts.

If all you want is to separate work for personal time, Snapchat won’t restrict your use of the two accounts.

How to know if someone is online or active on Snapchat?

There are several ways to know if someone is online or active on Snapchat.

You can send them a message for starters.

If they respond, then they’re online. But if you want to know when they were last online, you can still send them a message.

After you send them a message, look in the lower-left corner of the screen.

If their Bitmoji or a blue smiley icon appears, your friend is online and has read your message.

If no icon appears, they’re not online or haven’t seen your message.

You can also check and see if they fit your snap.

Go to your Friends page, and the timestamp should appear under your friend’s name.

It could say something like, “Opened 30 minutes ago.”

It means that they looked at your snap 30 minutes ago. It means they were online 30 minutes ago.

However, if, under your friend’s name appears a “Delivered” instead of “Opened,” it means they haven’t opened your snap yet.

They still aren’t online now.

You can also check their Snap Score to see if they’re online.

Go to your Friends page and hold down your friend’s name. A pop-up will appear with your friend’s Snap Score.

They’re online if the snap score changes after 5-10 minutes.

If it doesn’t, it means they’re offline or haven’t sent any snap.

How to make a personal story for close friends on Snapchat?

Anyone with access to Snapchat sees regular stories.

But what if you don’t want others to see it?

If you only want your close friends to see your Snapchat story, you can make it private.

If you create a private Snapchat story, log in to your Snapchat app first.

Then, tap on your Bitmoji or your profile icon to go to your profile.

Go to the Stories section and tap on the +Private Story or +Custom Story icon.

It’s just to the right of the Stories section.

Select everyone that you want to see your story by checking their names.

Take your photo or video, edit it, and tap on the Send button.

The story will be sent only to the people you selected. No one will see it.

Anyone who isn’t on your send list won’t know even know you made a personal story.

So, your secret is all fine if you don’t tell anyone.
