WhatsApp warns users to backup their data before November 12 to avoid permanent data loss
MENLO PARK – Social messaging application WhatsApp has offered to backup all your conversations, photos, and videos to Google Drive.
It used to take up some space on the cloud, users received emails saying the backup package will not count towards your available quota of storage, meaning you can store all the data for free.
Google sent out the message, stating the change is due to a new agreement with WhatsApp. The policy will be available to all by November 12.
According to Google any packages that are more than a year old will be automatically removed, meaning if users have a backup but haven’t restored it, it will get deleted.
To avoid any loss of data, users can do it manually.
