Published

on


WhatsApp is bringing a new end-to-end encrypted backup feature for Android devices. This new update comes for the beta testers and aims to protect users’ privacy while restoring the chat history and media files.

Enabling the end-to-end encrypted backup feature will allow your account history including messages and media to be protected from unofficial access on Google Drive. It requires a specific security key to verify the authentication.

Let’s give this process and key point a clear look-

Working Process:

The users have to set a password that’ll be a security key to encrypt the backups in the future. Without a key, the users can’t access their backups.

Key Notes:

There are some points that users should be aware of it. First of all the security key only formed using the numeric figures and lowercase letters from “a” to “f”. Additionally, users won’t be able to access chat history without it.

Furthermore, as users’ encryption passwords will be exclusive to them, so can’t be shared with WhatsApp, Facebook, Google Drive, or Apple. In case of losing the password, WhatsApp doesn’t offer any way to revive it.

Android Version and Availability:

WhatsApp just started to roll out the Android 2.21.15.5 beta version, so it may take time to reach your device. However, the iOS users are expected to wait for some more days, as the company is yet to roll out this feature for iPhone.

In case, if you have the same beta version on your device you can wait patiently because it might take a bit before being enabled for your account.
