How to stop people from adding you to WhatsApp groups without blocking them


Are you annoyed by the people who add you in a random WhatsApp group?

Then this article is only for you!

Whatsapp Betainfo announced a new feature that let you stop people from adding you to WhatsApp groups without your consent. This feature is rolling out globally on both iOS and Android.

With this feature, WhatsApp Betainfo announced that unknown users can’t add you in their group. In addition, you can also stop everyone from adding you. Until now the only way to stop being added was to block the admin of that group.

This feature has not come as a surprise as a service has been trying for quite some time now to prevent misinformation from spreading. WhatsApp has started labeling messages that are forwarded to make them stand out. In addition to that, a maximum number of times a message can be forwarded has been set to five.

If you have prohibited everyone from adding you in the group, you can still be sent a private link to join and that link will expire in 72 hrs either you join it or not. Users can’t receive two invitation from the same group at the same time.

With this new feature, users have more control over the group.
