There’s your family WhatsApp group, your friends from home, the lads from college, a workgroup, the other workgroup that’s minus the one we all complain about and that GAA group you try to ignore because you haven’t been to training in weeks.
WhatsApp group conversations can be frustrating at times, especially the ones you’re added into them without your consent.
Well, good news – the messaging platform has finally rolled out a feature that lets you choose who can add you to group chats – everyone, my contacts or nobody.
Along with the ability to accept or reject invitations sent through DMs.
Here’s how you can enable it:
1. Open WhatsApp, navigate to settings through Account > Privacy > Groups.
2. Select Groups, and choose the option that suits you best.
– Nobody (this prevents anyone from adding you to a group without an invitation)
– My contacts (only your contacts can add you to a group without an invitation)
– Anyone (Anyone can add you to a group without an invitation)If you value your privacy, you’ll want to select either of the first two options.
