Well, all that is going to be a thing of the past, from now on, you will have complete control of who can add you to groups.
Whatsapp in its recent update to its Android and iOS versions introduced a new feature that will enable users to choose who can add them to a chat group.
All you have to do is update to the most recent update of Whatsapp for your device then follow the few simple steps that will follow.
- Open Whatsapp Messenger
- Go to settings
- Select Account
- Select Privacy
- Among the options that follow you will see “Groups”, select that.
- From there you can choose whether you can be added to groups by Anyone, Your contacts only, or your contacts except some people you select. It’s this option which you can use to gain total control and block everyone. Like for my case I selected My contacts except….then i selected all my contact list.
This means no one can add me to any group except if they send me an invite link to join whatever group they want me in.
With the steps above, you will not find your self in random groups for weddings, get together, and those of complete strangers. You won’t look for the best time to exit groups anymore.
The above options will only work if you have the latest version of Whatsapp installed on your mobile device.
