Your WhatsApp Chats Are About To Get Much More Secure

WhatsApp

Whatsapp is testing a new feature to be added to its latest update. The feature is going to be a very important new WhatsApp security feature.

The feature was spotted by Intrepid sleuths at WABetaInfo, the info reveals that the unreleased feature will be called Protected Backups in a beta version of the Android app.

As the feature is yet to be officially added to the app, Facebook is yet to say anything about it. Details are a little scarce for now, but we do still have an interesting vision of what’s in store for the popular messaging app.

The feature was spotted in WhatsApp version 2.20.66 for Android. It’s not currently functional, but analysis of the beta version’s interface shows that WhatsApp users will, at some point, be able to save encrypted backups of their chats to Google Drive.

A new option in the Chat Backup section of WhatsApp will give users the opportunity to ‘Password protect backup’ by enabling the Protected Backups feature.

The new Protected Backup feature adds an extra layer of security meaning that neither WhatsApp nor Google will be able to see backups.

We are just hoping for an official announcement by WhatsApp. It’s also hard to say whether iOS users will be given access to the same option; we’ll just have to wait and see.
