WhatsApp has tightened security on end-to-end encryption. WhatsApp provides antiquated security so that even security agencies cannot retrieve messages. The latest change in WhatsApp is that backed-up messages can no longer be retrieved from storage. WhatsApp is also preparing to implement end-to-end encryption in the backup storage of chats.

Currently, WhatsApp messages are not visible to anyone outside of WhatsApp but security officials could have recovered them from the storage. Implementing end-to-end encryption in storage can also backfire on investigative agencies.

The new encryption will be executed through a password system. Currently, WhatsApp chats can be stored on Google Drive or anywhere else on Android phones. iPhone users will also get the option in the iCloud.

Speaking about the setback during the new service launch, including the case investigations, the WhatsApp CEO said that security in such matters is important in all areas because smartphones and devices are just as important to man today. Some countries are opposed to such security measures. But he added that it was important for the company to protect the user's information.

WhatsApp has approached the Delhi High Court seeking clarification on the source of the messages as per the central government's IT policy. WhatsApp responded by saying that it was against their end-to-end encryption policy, although the central government had asked them to clarify the source of the WhatsApp messages. The new change will be a setback for the central government.
