One of the most common problem that most users face is of unwanted group chats. The instant messaging platform allows anyone to add users to a group chat.
This exposes you to lame jokes, good morning messages, unnecessary videos and irritating poems. At last, the Facebook-owned app has addressed this problem and now you can ensure that you are not added to a group without your permission. For this, you need to update to the latest version of the app from Google Play Store or the App Store.

How to stop people from adding you to WhatsApp groups?
1. Open WhatsApp on your smartphone.
2. Go to Settings and look for 'Accounts' section.

4. Tap on groups.
5. You will be given three options to choose from: ‘Everyone’, ‘My Contacts’ and ‘Nobody’.
6. Tap on the option as per your preference.
WhatsApp selects ‘Everyone’ option for you by default. This means that anyone can add you to a group. In case you opt for ‘My Contacts’, only people in your contact list would be able to add you to a group. And, if you select ‘Nobody’ option, you will be sent an invite every time someone tries to add you to a group.
