Is there any way to stop people from adding me to their WhatsApp group?

Is there any way to stop people from adding me to their WhatsApp group? Often people ask this. This automatic addition to groups is irritating and by the time you delete and exit the group your mobile number has been exposed. Also, If you have blocked a contact, you will still receive messages this contact sends into any group you have in common. Likewise, they will still receive messages you send to those groups. But we can’t help with it unless WhatsApp starts to provide an option to ask your permission before they add you in any group.

Well till then you can do is

You can always control your own participation in a Group Chat by staying in or leaving the group when you wish. or you can mute the group. Only group admins have the ability to add participants. If you have any questions about being added to a group, or prefer not to be added, please speak to a group admin.

If you block the group admin personally, then the admin can’t add you to the group.

If still the admin try to add you to the group, he will get a message like this:

“Not authorised to add this contact.”

Now admin can’t add you to his group. This method works on new updated WhatsApp.

Disadvantages:

Blocking the group admin prevents adding you to the group, but now WhatsApp supports multiple admin to a group. So he can make anyone as group admin and new admin can add you to the group. So you need to block all admins.

If you block the group admin, you can’t contact with him anymore. So a personal blocking break the contact and relationship between you and admin. If the group has more admin, then you need to block all admin. Then you can’t possible further chat with all blocked person.

Thanks & Regards.
