    Reading Time: 2 minutes read

    It has been a few months since WhatsApp got its hands on the hot water due to the new privacy policy feature. Even though WhatsApp has already given assurance that it will not store WhatsApp messages yet WhatsApp users have moved away from WhatsApp and joined Telegram and Signal.

    According to our WhatsApp reliable leakster, WABetaInfo confirms that WhatsApp is implementing a new feature to improve the security of its cloud backup. The current WhatsApp allows you to store your messages in cloud storages such as Google Cloud or iCloud. However, until now WhatsApp hasn’t really find a way to backup all messages in a single cloud storage platform.

    Currently, there is a problem when you switch from Android to iOS or vice versa. The reason is because both these devices are using different cloud backups. We wish, WhatsApp will made a new feature to fix this issue. But in the meantime, WhatsApp is adding a password protection feature for its cloud backups. With this new feature, users don’t have to worry about the security of their WhatsApp messages.

    The WABetaInfo have shared to us a screenshots of how the feature works. They have also mention that this feature will be available in the near coming future for both iOS and Android devices.

    How it works is by requesting you enter your password before enabling your chat backups. Once you got a new smartphone or you reset your smartphone, then you need to reenter your password in order to start the restoration process. Do note that the backups as for now only involves messages only except medias.

    In conclusion, it is a bad time for WhatsApp to regain its good names by adding this new feature. Nevertheless, we believe this feature is something useful for those of you who are concern about your messages being stored in the cloud backups platform.
