Manage two Facebook accounts from one device, unfortunately it is not possible through the official Facebook app, as each time it will be necessary to exit your account and re-enter with the credentials of the other profile. With a few tricks, however, this problem is easily solved and will allow you to use two Facebook accounts on Android at the same time.

The methods for log into Facebook with another account on Android, essentially there are two, namely:


  1. Use one second alternative app in adthetion to the official one, such as Facebook Lite. This application was initially created for less powerful smartphones that have problems running the thought of the official social network app, but in our case it will also be very useful for our purpose. In adthetion, Facebook Lite consumes less data traffic, while maintaining the main features.
  2. The second method instead consists in the take advantage of some app cloning features (such as Twin App, Double Account and Cloned App, just to name a few), available on the smartphones of manufacturers: Huawei, Honor, Samsung and Xiaomi. This method, unlike the first, will allow us to use the official Facebook app, with both profiles in our possession.


Now let's see both methods specifically.

1. Use Facebook Lite

As anticipated, shortly before Facebook Lite is a lighter version than the official one, designed mainly to run not only on less performing smartphones, with little memory or a low-powered processor, but also for those who have a slow Internet connection. By installing this app, you can use two Facebook profiles on the same smartphone or tablet without problems, as each application will have its own icon to identify it. You can download the application from the link below:

Once you've downloaded and installed the app, launch it and log into Facebook with the second account, by entering the login data relating to it (email address and password). In this way you can use two facebook profiles on Android, dethecating the official app to the main profile and the lite app to the secondary one.

This application is currently only available for Android, but a version is also being created for owners of iPhones and iPads with iOS system.

If this app doesn't satisfy you, there are also other alternative apps, such as Swift for Facebook Lite.

In the next few lines we will see specifically how to activate this function and use it on smartphones produced by Huawei, Honor, Samsung and Xiaomi. You can also find application cloning on devices from other manufacturers, even if your smartphone does not belong to the previously mentioned brands. Take a look in the settings, maybe it might be there.
