Beginner’s Guide on Duplicating or Cloning App on Android

Duplicating or cloning apps means installing the same app with a fresh state of data. The cloned app can be signed in with a new, completely different account/data.

Imagine you’re a digital marketer, you know it’s impossible to sign in more than 5 Instagram account on the same app. That limitation can be bypassed by cloning or duplicating the Instagram app so you can sign in up to 10 Instagram accounts on two Instagram apps, managing them at the same time.

This cloning/duplicating function eliminates the need to buy a new phone. I mean, you don’t have to buy a new phone only to sign in a different account to Instagram. You also don’t have to sign-in them on your browser, with incognito mode.

You also don’t have to sign-out, and sign-in to a different account every time you want to manage a different account.

Therefore, we need a cloning app that can:

  • Duplicate/clone apps
  • Uninstall closed apps
  • Creating shortcuts for cloned apps on your home screen

One of the best cloning apps is Clone App by Arty Products.
