WhatsApp introduces a new feature for users of its beta app on iOS according to a report by wabetainfo. The feature will allow users to secure their backup to iCloud and prevent unauthorized access.
If who is someone, you use a relatively weak password, it is potentially easier for an attacker to log into your Apple ID and steal information. Users can enable two-factor authentication for additional protection in such cases.
Users who use the same password in different applications and services are more vulnerable to hackers. According to the report, if you enable end-to-end encryption on your backup, attackers will not be able to see your content because it is encrypted using a 64-digit password or encryption key. .
This feature has started rolling out to various iOS beta testers for WhatsApp Messenger and Business beta. If you want to check if this feature has been enabled for your WhatsApp account, you can do the same by visiting WhatsApp Settings> Chats> Chat Backup> End-to-End Encrypted Backup.
It is important to note that when you enable this feature, you will need to disable “WhatsApp” for your device backup, which is not secure with end-to-end encryption.
To do this, go to iPhone Settings> Your Name> iCloud> Manage Storage> Backup> Disable WhatsApp (please follow exactly this path).
In addition, WhatsApp is developing a “global voicemail reader” feature, which will allow users to listen to voicemail messages even after leaving chats.
According to a report by WabetaInfo, when you read a voicemail message and exit that chat, it will then be pinned to the top of the main app. WhatsApp will also provide an option to pause and reject the voicemail message at any time.
