WhatsApp is going to take great steps in terms of security, this important feature will be brought
We are constantly seeing WhatsApp coming up with new features. They are trying to make it much better, especially in terms of security. Earlier we saw that WhatsApp is trying to secure cloud backup. WhatsApp has gone a long way with that feature. And today a new feature came to the fore. Where the local backup will be secure.
This is not unknown to us using WhatsApp end-to-end encryption. However, in the case of cloud backup, this end-to-end encryption did not work. For which if anyone could grab this cloud backup. Then all the WhatsApp chats would have been leaked.
WhatsApp Cloud Backup has come a long way in overcoming this risk. That is what we know. However, taking that process a few more steps forward, it is known that this time someone is trying to encrypt WhatsApp local backup.
WABetaInfo shared a picture about, where we can see the option to encrypt local backup. Until now, local backups were secured only by phone numbers. And that’s why if we wanted to restore WhatsApp backup, our phone number would be verified and restored immediately. We get back to our old chats and media. This method was not at all secure.
And if this new security feature is enabled, this local backup will also be encrypted. However, no information has yet been found on how this method will work. It is believed that this feature will be available for everyone in the near future. And it will make your WhatsApp application 5 more secure.
By the way, today we saw that WhatsApp View Once feature has started rolling out. All in all, WhatsApp is gearing up to regain lost respect.
