Block Who Can Join or Send Invites to WhatsApp Group Chats

Tired of your WhatsApp group chats getting filled up with unwanted users without your permission? Or perhaps you are tired of being added to groups you're not interested in. Luckily you can control who can invite new members, and you can also block others from adding you to group chats.




Control Who Can Add You to Group Chats

Open WhatsApp. Then click on Settings, Account, and Privacy. On the Privacy page, go to Groups. Here you can control who can add you to group chats:



By default, WhatsApp enables this to Everyone. You can also only allow your contacts to add you, and that list can be further restricted by individual contact if you select the 3rd option, My Contacts Except....

Limit Who Can Add New User to You WhatsApp Group Chat

If you have created a group chat and want to limit who can send invites for others to join, you need to control the Admin list. Only group Admins can add new members to group chats via invites. Open your group chat, and click on the name of your group chat at the top so that you find the summary page. Scroll down, then click on Group Settings:



Select Edit Group Admins and here you can select which member in the group you want to make an admin. After, they will be able to send invites and make edits to the group.
