WhatsApp has recently added an end-to-end encryption feature in cloud backup files for both users on the Android and iOS operating systems.
The reason is that for five years the end-to-end encryption feature has been presented on WhatsApp, but backup files containing chats and contacts of users are not encrypted at all.
With the presence of this new feature, backup files stored in Google Drive for Android and iCloud for iOS will remain encrypted so that their contents cannot be easily seen by others.
Through its official blog, Facebook as the parent company of WhatsApp provides a way for users to activate the feature, this can be done by going to the Settings menu > Chats > Chat Backup > End-to-end Encrypted Backup.
When this feature is activated, the user will be asked to create a password which will be needed when the backup is to be used in case the user resets the data or moves to a new smartphone unit.
