How to turn off iCloud Backup

iCloud automatically creates backups of your WhatsApp chats, and these backups aren’t protected by WhatsApp’s end-to-end encryption. We recommend disabling iCloud backup when you set up end-to-end encrypted backup in WhatsApp.
To disable automatic iCloud backup:
  1. Open Settings.
  2. Tap your name > iCloud > Manage Storage > Backups.
  3. Select your device.
  4. Untoggle WhatsApp.
Note: Disabling automatic iCloud backup does not enable end-to-end encrypted backup. Learn how to turn on end-to-end encrypted backup here.
