How to protect WhatsApp chats that are saved in Google Drive or Apple iCloud

WhatsApp offers the possibility of encrypting the Backups of the chats that are saved in the cloudeither Google Drive or iCloud.

This means that the system can be configured to protect the backups made in the cloud with a password or a 64-digit encryption key that only the user knows. As the company explained when it announced this novelty, “no one, not even WhatsApp or your backup provider, will be able to read your backups or have access to the key to unlock them.”

Didn’t WhatsApp already offer endpoint encryption? Yes, but only on messages that are sent and received on the device. This encryption is present, by default, since 2016, but the novelty that was incorporated in October 2021 is the possibility of also encrypting (with E2EE encryption) the backup or back up of the conversations that are stored in the cloud.
