Whatsapp privacy and security upgrades for Android and ios users.

Whatsapp is one of the most popular and widely used messaging platform. It is reported that whatsapp will set to provide backup features for specific Androids and ios users. The new improvements are expected to be launched soon and will then raise the level of security and privacy that is currently available on message backups.

During the previous month, the CEO of Facebook announced on social media that whatsapp will be adding another layer of security and privacy, which will come out soon. He also added, " Whatsapp is the first global messaging service at this scale to offer end to end messaging and backups, and getting there was really hard technical challenge that required an entirely new framework for key storage and cloud storage across operating system ".

The new end to end encrypted chat backup features will be available on what'sapp beta Android 2.21.15.5 and whatsapp beta for ios 2.21.200.14 . The whatsapp features will protect the chat backups from 3rd parties. The users will also need to create a password that is required to restore and access the backup in the future, in order to use the features.
