WhatsApp has warned Users that Free Google Drive Backups Are Not End-To-End Encrypted

WhatsApp has warned users that by using a free backup service offered by Google, messages will no longer be protected by end-to-end encryption.

While Apple iOS users may elect to use iCloud backup storage options, Android users store theirs through Google Drive — but alongside the changes, WhatsApp has reminded users that once communication, chat, and media is transferred away from the app, end-to-end encryption is no longer in place.
