Although WhatsApp chats are secret between the sender and the recipient, no one else can see it. However, this protection does not occur in secure online backups on Google Drive and iCloud.

However, given this need, WhatsApp is now working on a new feature to protect your cloud backup, named ‘Password Protection’. This feature will be available for Android and iOS users to save backup chats.

However, the user will need to remember their password as there is no recovery facility in case of forgetting the password and this has been done to secure the backup chats.
