WhatsApp's new privacy feature that blocks users from adding you to groups rolls out starting today.
You can access the new features from the messaging app's privacy settings.
You can also block all your contacts from sending group invites using the 'select all' option
WhatsApp announced a new privacy feature for WhatsApp groups yesterday. By default, any contact can add you to a WhatsApp group. Some groups are important and share relevant information. Others end up being a bit of a nuisance, especially if they're spamming your notifications.
WhatsApp's new privacy feature now allows you to block certain, or all, contacts from adding you to groups. Contacts on the block list will still be able to inform you about a new group but only through an invite link, which expires in three days — they won't be able to add you to any group directly without your consent.
