WhatsApp, which Facebook bought a few years ago, is the most popular instant messaging app in the world today . Almost everyone who owns a smartphone is actively using this application. Of course, the use of an application so popular requires that the application is kept up-to-date and necessary measures are taken in terms of security.


WhatsApp's developer team does everything they can to keep the app up to date. The developers are doing beta updates almost every other day and are testing new features that will be available on WhatsApp with these updates. Moreover, new features coming to WhatsApp are wondered by users and users follow closely all developments related to WhatsApp .



WhatsApp developers now have updated the Android beta version of the mobile app . With this update, the Android beta version of WhatsApp has increased to "2.20.66". This version upgrade also introduced a new feature that will be available to users in the future. This feature seems to improve the security of users' backups of WhatsApp messages .


Android users back up their WhatsApp messages to Google Drive . This way, users can regain access to all their chats when they install WhatsApp on another phone. These backups have not been protected by any additional security measures to date. However, the new version of WhatsApp changes this situation and ensures that a password is set in the Google Drive backup .



This new feature that WhatsApp developers will offer to users on the Android platform in the future will be activated with a new option to be added to the application. Users will also set a password after enabling the " Password protect backups " option in question . WhatsApp backups will be verified with this password in subsequent installations and then the download will be made. Users who forget their passwords will not be able to access their message backups again .


WhatsApp's new security measure is currently under development. So it is not yet clear when this feature will be available . It is also worth noting that this feature will be exclusive to the Android platform only because iPhone owners cannot make WhatsApp backups to Google Drive.
