    No. Whatsapp is its own account based on your phone number. Messenger (I assume you mean Facebook Messenger?) is tied directly to your Facebook account and does not require a phone number.

    Ok, so they are two separate accounts and there is no danger that what I do on Whatsapp is automatically on Messenger too?

    There shouldn't be. That said - Facebook Messenger does like to take over as much as it can (which is why I refuse to install it on my devices) so I suppose anything is possible.

    Whastapp is what you use to hide what you're doing.

    FB Messenger is what you use to let FB know EVERYTHING you're doing.

    Side note: Facebook owns Whatsapp and of course Facebook Messenger

    I'm a bit confused. So,I make an example:I have just Whatsapp on my phone,not Messenger installed and I don't have Fb account . If Iwant to install Messenger on my phone 1)Do I need a Fb account ?
    2)Is it an account separated from Whatsapp account ?

    Yes and yes. Different apps, different accounts, different features.
