WhatsApp Update: Control being added to groups now

Aren’t groups on WhatsApp rather nosy? Especially if you were added without your consent and exiting them seems rude to you. The only chance you had was to only mute the group but then again there was no stopping the bulk of messages and media that piled upon in your storage.

Well your problem is now solved with WhatsApp’s latest update.

With the latest WhatsApp update, you can now control being added to groups, limiting your addition to the groups you don’t want to be added to.

Here’s how you can do it;

  1. Go to your Setting 
  2. Tap Account Setting 
  3. Then go to Privacy
  4. And then click on Groups

Upon the options you see, you can either choose “Everyone, My Contacts or Nobody”

Upon selecting “Nobody”, it will mean that nobody will be able to add you in any WhatsApp group without your permission.  You will receive a request to be added to a group and it will stay pending in your settings, available for 3 days or 72 hours before disappearing.

The update is currently available on the latest version of WhatsApp only.
