If you are using WhatsApp then you know about a WhatsApp feature in which WhatsApp keeps our all the chat or media backup on google drive. But the disadvantage of this feature is that we can not see/Download the Whatsapp backup on google drive. It is because it's the security feature of WhatsApp that's why we can not see WhatsApp backups on google drive. But there is a method by which we can download all the WhatsApp backup from google drive on our system.

Today I will show you a method by which you can download the Whatsapp backup from google drive on your system. After downloading you can see the WhatsApp media files(Whatsapp Images, Audio files, Documents, Videos, and Messages ).

Whatsapp has a Security feature that all the messages/chats are created as database and this database is encrypted and without decrypting the database we can not read the WhatsApp messages. For Decrypting the database we need a key which is on the phone from which WhatsApp backups are created. We can get the key from the phone and after that, we can decrypt the database and read all messages. There is a method by which we can Decrypt the Whatsapp database and read all messages. But sometimes this method doesn't work and there are chances that you can lose all the WhatsApp data. Personally, I don't recommend you this trick. But it depends on you if you want to try this trick.
