WhatsApp Reportedly Testing End to End Encryption for Cloud Backups

Because of its encryption and privacy, WhatsApp messaging software grew extremely popular. Like WhatsApp communication, it is encrypted end-to-end, meaning that no external party could see its content. On the contrary, the cloud backups of WhatsApp do not have such security measures, which means authorities may simply access the data they have saved in a cloud backup with a search warrant.

However, WABetaInFo recently reported the technology used by WhatsApp to deliver end-to-end encryption of your Cloud backups and said that the mechanism has been active in the latest beta update for Android (2.21.15.5).

With the arrival of this new update, your chat history and media will be backed up securely, with a clear warning that you will not be able to access your cloud backup if it occurs to forget your password or 64 number recovery key. If you are OK in this respect, all you need to do is join in the beta test group or wait for it to be available to everyone globally.

In need for WhatsApp to retain end-to-end encryption, whether or not your smartphone is involved, it develops a software version that operates through a range of other devices. When you're beta, carefully check your version, since social media posts show that the closed encryption testing are expanding to include more people.
