Whatsapp Will Now Get Permission before Adding Anyone to Groups

Where WhatsApp groups played a big role in online communication there it created certain problems such as more often users are added to groups against their will.

To overcome this issue, Whatsapp finally set up a solution as it now seeks approval from the user being added before involving them in the group.

Whatsapp Will Now Get Permission before Adding Anyone to Groups

Whatsapp states in a blog post,

With these new features, users will have more control over the group messages they receive.

To enable this feature you need to go to your account settings and then press on the privacy tab to choose the group settings. You can now choose from three options; nobody, my contacts or everyone.

When you select “Nobody” as an option it then means no one will be able to automatically add you to a group without your approval. The option of “My Contacts” means only users in your address book can add you to groups while the “Everyone” option will not require any approval on the user’s end.

Users get only three days to accept the invite after which it expires. The new setting is being roll out and users will soon get to make the changes.
