WhatsApp Can Transfer Chat History from iOS to Android – Even though it has been hit by a lot of controversy regarding the company, Facebook still has many users who rely on its services, namely WhatsApp, to exchange messages.
The noise of users who perceive privacy updates as a threat to personal data does not seem to have had a significant effect both in Indonesia and in other countries.
As a result, the company continues to develop and update features. Previously, WhatsApp launched an update that made it easier for users to access the platform through various devices.
Now, it is reported that the company is developing a feature that functions to move conversation history from iOS to Android. This is good news for most of the chat application users.
In terms of features and services, this is not new. There are already various choices of third-party platforms that provide similar services. Both paid and free services.
However, because this is an official feature developed by the company, you don’t need to worry about chat data being stored by parties other than WhatsApp. At least, that’s the plus of this service.
Also, what we can expect from this feature is, of course, the ease of moving data from iOS to Android. As we can see from the image below, data migration can also be done the other way around, from Android to iOS.
A New Feature from WhatsApp
The presence of this feature will undoubtedly provide new facilities for loyal WhatsApp users. As a result, you no longer need to bother moving data when changing devices, either from Android to iOS or vice versa.
Perhaps, some readers ask this. And naturally, considering that this feature update also changes the WhatsApp storage system as a whole.
One of the things that make WhatsApp tempting is end-to-end or E2EE security encryption and privacy protection. That’s the important value advertised by the company when it was still in the development phase – the time before Facebook bought the company.
Thanks to this encryption, every conversation data is stored on the internal storage of the device. Not in the cloud or cloud computing. As a result, security is better maintained because users have complete control over it.
This also causes many malware programs to try hard to access WhatsApp data stored on the device. The thing is, if the malware manages to steal user data, it is the same as the hacker has taken over the victim’s device.
On the other hand, this relatively safe and profitable system also has its drawbacks. So users cannot move data directly from one platform to another.
So, when the update was released, of course, there were several changes to the security protocol that the company made. This step was taken to adjust the new features that promise convenience. As for security, maybe we should wait until WhatsApp gives its official statement.
