WhatsApp new improvement for end-to-end encrypted backups
WhatsApp is working on the new End-to-End Encrypted Backup feature. This feature will help users to secure their backups when the users take the backup on Google Drive. Users can set the password to set the End-to-End Encrypted security on their backups.
It is adding more features for the End-to-End Encrypted Backup feature. Also, it will help uses to view their 64-digit encryption key. WhatsApp is clarifying that the encryption key can only contain the numeric digits and lowercase letters between ‘a’ and ‘f’. This is an encrypted key so WhatsApp wants to use the hex format makes sense, as per WABetaInfo reports.
Users can use passwords or passcode to decrypt their backups when they restore them on WhatsApp. Because of end-to-end encrypted security, no one can see your backup content. The unauthorized users won’t be able to access your content. Users have to set the passcode or password to configure the end-to-end encrypted backups to their backup. The password is private and it won’t be shared with their parent company, Facebook. Also, it won’t be shared with Google or Apple. This feature is currently under development. It will roll out soon.
