The 14 Best Parallel Space Alternatives to Clone Apps in 2022

If we look around, we will find that more people are joining social media platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Whatsapp etc.). Not only that, but most of us now have multiple social media accounts. Parallel Space is an app that allows you to run two instances of the same app on your Android smartphone.

Indian Government recently banned 59 Chinese apps including parallel Space as a security measure. The ban leaves users of these apps no other options but to look for alternatives. Also Parallel Space has become bloated, and it now causes faster battery drain. Even with the screen off, it drains the battery in the background.

That being the case we bring you the 14 best Parallel Space alternatives to clone apps in 2022.

1. Island

Pricing: Free

Island, while still in “Early Access” is a capable app that can replace Parallel Space for you. It’s developed by Oasis Feng, who is also the developer of Greenify (free), a popular power and resource management app for Android.

The developer is known for his stance on privacy, so you can be assured that your data will be safe. Talking about the features, Island brings most of the features that you can expect from an app cloning app.

You can isolate apps for privacy protection, clone apps for running multiple accounts, and freeze apps to completely block their background behaviors. Using these features, you can run multiple instances of the same apps, safeguard your data, and ensure that power-hungry apps don’t eat your battery.

The app uses the built-in work profile feature of Android to create a space for you. So, you will miss out on the password protection feature to hide the cloned apps.

You can hide the apps, but you cannot put them behind a vault. Anyway, you can also use an app locking app to create a vault yourself if you need to have it. Apart from that, it’s best for running cloned apps while maintaining data privacy.

2. 2Accounts

Pricing: Free and Premium

2Accounts app can simultaneously run two accounts of the same app.

The most important thing about 2Accounts is its user interface which looks clean and well organized. With 2Accounts, you can easily create a clone of popular apps like Instagram, Telegram, WhatsApp, etc. This app ensures that the clone app data is stored independently and that you won’t miss messeng a single notification from each clone app.

3. Default options

If you have a smartphone from either Xiaomi, Vivo, Realme, OnePlus, or even Samsung, then chances are you already have a native option to clone installed apps.

But there are few differences such as Xiaomi’s Dual Apps, Vivo’s App Clone, Realme’s Clone Apps allow you to clone any app installed on your phone.

Whereas Samsung’s Dual Messager and OnePlus’s Parallel Apps only allow you to create clone apps for social media and messaging platforms like Instagram and Whatsapp. So as long as you want to run two WhatsApp or Facebook accounts on the same phone, these native options should work just fine.

However, if you have a stock Android, then the next app is for you.

4. 2Face

Pricing: Free and Premium

You can also try 2Face to use multiple social media apps and accounts on your Android devices.

This app is easy to use, and one of the few that works totally without any issue. Though it will let you select only a limited number of apps for cloning. But it will make sure they work as you need them to.

It works just like Parallel Space where you can just create a duplicate clone app of the already installed app. There are even lock settings for pattern lock and fingerprint just like on the parallel Space.

This app is also significantly lighter, smoother, and also app open times are much faster comparatively. But this app has a lot of ads that can really irritate you. But you can get rid of them by choosing the VIP version for Rs 300.

If you don’t trust private companies with your data and want an open-source Android app to replace Parallel Space, you should download Shelter.

Shelter is a free and open-source app that leverages the “Work Profile” feature of Android to provide an isolated space where you can install cloned apps. This is a great app for people who want enhanced privacy.

Using this, you can run all the data collecting apps like Facebook in a container, where they cannot access your data outside your profile. Of course, you can also use it to clone apps and manage multiple accounts. One of my favorite features of this app is that it allows you to freeze background-heavy or seldom-used apps when you don’t need them.

Not only it’s good for privacy but it also means that the cloned apps won’t drain the battery too quickly. That being said, remember that like Island, you will not be able to hide cloned apps behind a password protected vault with Shelter.

You will get all the other benefits of using a FOSS app. The app is free, there are no ads, and there is no tracking. If you want to ensure your data privacy, you should use this app.

9. Multi

10. Super Clone

Pricing: Free and Premium

Both Multi Parallel and Do Multiple Space support more than 1 account.

This means you can clone any app as many times as you want, but you can only access them by choosing the VIP version. If your main priority is required using a single app more than multiple times, Super Clone is a no brainer.

I have tested out more than 10 apps and only Super Clone supports the feature for free. Just like Multi Parallel, this app also has a lot of ads, but you can remove them by choosing a VIP version of s 200/month.

Or you can choose a yearly subscription for Rs 1,450. Anyhow, you get all the pro features for free including pattern lock and multiple accounts.

The best thing about this app, apart from its primary function, is that it doesn’t show any ads. Even if you are using the free version, there are no ads to spoil your experience.

Like Parallel Space, you can use this app to clone apps to manage multiple accounts on the same phone. I also love that it brings special support for WhatsApp and allows you to use colorful skins.

The app supports both 32-bit and 64-bit apps, so no apps are left behind. It comes with a built-in VPN for enhanced privacy. That being said, the VPN is not that good, you will be better off using any one of the dedicated free VPN apps.

Other features of the app include, support for space themes, emoticons, and more. This is a good app for cloning your chat and social media application. Note that in my testing, it didn’t work well with games.
