Facebook has just enabled encrypted backups for WhatsApp messages to Google Drive or Apple’s iCloud. The feature, however, is not enabled by default so, if you’d like to backup your important WhatsApp messages, here’s how to turn the feature on:
– In the latest version of WhatsApp, go to ‘Settings’.
– Tap on ‘Chats’ > ‘Chat Backup’ > ‘End-to-end Encrypted Backup’.
– Tap on ‘Continue’ and follow the prompts to create your password or 64-digit encryption key.
– Tap ‘Done’.
