WhatsApp has notified its users that the end-to-end encryption it offers for messages and media on its app, will not remain so if the data is stored as a backup on Google’s servers. “Media and messages you back up aren't protected by WhatsApp end-to-end encryption while in Google Drive,” WhatsApp said in an update.

The explicit mention comes even as the Facebook owned company said on August 16 that it has signed up to Google's cloud storage offering - drive, without any quota from November 12.
However WhatsApp's end to end encryption has been questioned by authorities. Notably, the Indiangovernment has called on the messaging platform to offer traceability of messages sent on the app. It has reiterated that WhatsApp has not done enough in using technology to trace the origin of rumours spread on the platform that has led to violence in several parts of the country.

WhatsApp provides end to end encryption, meaning the message a user sends can only be read by the recipient and vice versa. Further,WhatsApp guarantees protection to users from third parties trying to eavesdrop on conversations, and even prevents WhatsApp itself from reading the messages.

A mail to WhatsApp seeking additional comments did not elicit response on Sunday. A Google spokesperson reiterated a statement on the pact, adding “any backups that have not been updated in more than a year will automatically be removed from storage”.
