So to ensure users they too are serious about privacy and make people stick to the platform instead of running off to more secure platforms, Whatsapp brings end-to-end encryption to chat backups too, in the latest beta update.
The new feature will secure the chat backup, stored on Google Drive, with a private password which will prevent unauthorized access to the backup.
Although the feature is still under development to ensure bugs get removed before its final release, the platform has introduced several UI changes that confirm the new feature.
The new end-to-end encryption indicator can be seen under the size of the backup. The feature will be available in an upcoming update.
