Some people’s aim on WhatsApp is just to create groups and add people to those groups, i don’t know if they get some kind of award for doing that. So how do you stop those annoying friends from adding you to groups without your permission?
That is where the new WhatsApp update comes in; the latest update that gives you total control of who can add you to groups.
The company has introduced a new privacy setting and invites system to help you decide who can add you to groups.
How to Enable it
To enable it, go to Settings in your app, tap Account > Privacy > Groups and select one of three options: “Nobody,” “My Contacts,” or “Everyone.”
Nobody means you’ll have to approve joining every group to which you’re invited, and
My Contacts means only users you have in your address book can add you to groups.
In those cases, the person inviting you to a group will be prompted to send a private invite through an individual chat, giving you the choice of joining the group. You’ll have three days to accept the invite before it expires.
Tell me that is not cool, now you can decide which group to join.
