WhatsApp Group can be the most annoying thing especially when you don’t know who added you to them and the discussion is not making any sense, this can be very very annoying.
I know countless number of people who stopped using Whatsapp because they are unable to stop/restrict people people from adding them to senseless groups but with this new settings, such won’t happen again and you all can now use the App with rest of mind
See the Group settings screenshot below:-
NOTE:- In case you can’t find the update option to update WhatsApp on your App store, give it sometimes as they are currently rolling out the updates in batches.
HOW TO ENABLE THE SETTINGS
1. Open WhatsApp on your phone, and go to Settings > Accounts > Privacy.
2. Tap on Groups, and select any of the option below that suits you best.
Below are the options:-
– Nobody (this will prevents anyone from adding you to a group).
– My Contacts (only your contacts can add you to a group).
– Anyone (Anyone can add you to a group without an invitation)
If you value your privacy, you should select either of the first two options.
