How to Stop Peoples from adding you to Unknown WhatsApp Groups.

WhatsApp groups are a great way to keep in touch with family, friends, and even colleagues, but many people often use the Group feature to add a large number of people to the group to sell products or promote services. These groups are usually created without the permission of the participants, which can be frustrating for many people.


Most of us hate being part of an unnecessary group and often consider whether it is impolite to withdraw from a group. The best way to solve this problem is to use filters to prevent random people from adding you to the group.
