How To Prevent People From Adding You to a WhatsApp Group Without Your Permission.

It is true that WhatsApp group can be a fun place. It can also be a place to get new ideas about a topic. For example, if you were to join my WhatsApp group Ezefidelity, then you will be among the first people to get notified when I make a new post especially one that has to do with WhatsApp.

However, because by default, WhatsApp allow group admins to add as participant to their group anyone to which they have their WhatsApp contact, many people are misusing that privileged.

So if you have been a victim of someone adding to you all sort of group in WhatsApp without the person first asking for your permission and you do not want this to continue happening to you, then you will find the tutorial below helpful.

Because from it, you will be able to configure your WhatsApp account so that WhatsApp will no longer allow any group admin to add you to their group without your expressed permission.

Prevent Others From Adding You to a Group in WhatsApp

STEP 1: Open WhatsApp then open Settings.

STEP 2: Tap on Account.

STEP 3: Tap on Privacy.

STEP 4: Scroll down to locate the Group option. Tap on it when you do.

STEP 5: In the Who can add me to groups section, select the My contacts except… option.

STEP 6: The final step. Use the button the arrow is pointing to to select all your contact then tap on the round green check mark button.

Once done, no one, will be able to added you to a group in WhatsApp with your permission.

Note however that when you add new contact to your WhatsApp, you need to follow the steps above again so that WhatsApp will add the person to the list of people who cannot add you to a group.

Who can add me to group option explained

Everyone: This is the default option in WhatsApp. If this option is left selected, it means that anyone can add you to a group in WhatsApp provided they person knows your WhatsApp number. You do not have to know the person.
This option I do not advice.

My Contact: With this option, you are saying that only those whom you have added to your contact list can add you to a group.
This option I recommend if there are no spammers in your contact list.

My contact except…: This option allows you to be specific. With this option you will be asked choose those you do not want to allow to add you to a group in WhatsApp.
