WhatsApp is rolling out new features for Android beta users. The Facebook-owned company now independently encrypts your backups in the cloud and this feature is visible in upcoming update.
The stable version of WhatsApp currently lets you store all your chats to a third-party app, Google Drive, reports Indian Express.All your chats will be password-protected, so you will have to create a password using which you will be able to restore all your chats. If you forget the password, then WhatsApp won’t be able to restore chat history.
WaBetaInfo asserted that “this password is private and it’s not shared with WhatsApp, Facebook, Google or Apple.” The feature also supports a 64-digit encryption key that can be used to restore your password. WhatsApp will help generate a random 64-digit encryption key.
