WhatsApp is working on password protection for users’ chat history when backing up to the cloud

WhatsApp is working on password protection for users’ chat history when backing up to the cloud. According to a tweet from WhatsApp feature leaker site WABetaInfo, the new feature would enable users to introduce a password to keep their chat database and media on the cloud safe from unauthorised access. Screengrabs of the feature showed that users would need to devise a case-sensitive password with an eight-character minimum. Then they would need to key in the account’s corresponding phone number to confirm they want a password.
