You Can Now Stop People From Adding You To WhatsApp Groups

WhatsApp is now rolling out one very important privacy feature

To recall, the new privacy settings for WhatsApp groups invites is meant to help users choose who can add them to groups. If you pick the latter two, restricted people won't be able to force you into a group; they'll have to send you an invite privately that you can either approve or deny. My contact setting allows people in your WhatsApp contact list to add you in a group.

WhatsApp says the new settings roll out to some users today, and will reach the rest of WhatsApp's audience in the weeks ahead.

"With these new features, users will have more control over the group messages they receive". Invites are made in an individual chat and are valid three days before expiring. Now before you get added to a group user consent is a must before getting added.

Under pressure to stop rumours and fake news, WhatsApp had a year ago restricted forwarding messages to five chats at once.

As per the image (above), we can see there is a new "Reverse Search image" feature and if you select yes, it will upload the forwarded image to the Google browser and match it with the vast visual data available on the Internet.

"Everyone" - will let anyone add you to a group, without invitation (this is the current setting in the app).

You can select who can add you to groups by going into Settings, selecting Account, and tapping on Groups. Otherwise, the link expires in 72 hours. Whatsapp has mentioned that this update has been long requested by users.

Last January, WhatsApp started enforcing a new rule that limits the number of message forwarding to five.

Picking "Everyone" will let anyone add you to a group without asking you for permission. In countries like Brazil and India, Whatsapp groups are important points to spread fake and misleading news.

Options available include "everyone", "my contacts" or you can choose to block all invites totally using the "Nobody" option. This update has various options to choose between privacy and makes it easy for the user to manage privacy in the most used messenger app.

WhatsApp has rolled out a new common sense privacy setting that may also make it more hard for harmful content to spread through the platform.
