Whatsapp Updated Group Privacy Settings

WhatsApp on Wednesday announced that it has started rolling out the updated group privacy settings globally. The new development, which essentially provides you with additional control for who among your contacts can add you to a group, was initially spotted for beta users. The Facebook-owned company also late last month brought an update to the WhatsApp for iPhone with the new privacy settings for select users. WhatsApp includes the new “My Contacts Except…” option that replaces the earlier “Nobody” option under the group privacy settings.

To find the updated privacy settings for groups, you need to go to the Settings menu of your WhatsApp and then tap Account > Privacy > Groups. You’ll there find the My Contacts Except… option that sits next to the existing Everyone and My Contacts. It gives you the control to select which of your contacts can add you to a group on the instant messages.

If you’ve selected the new option from the updated group privacy settings, the admin who is restricted from adding you to a group will be prompted to send you a private invite through an individual chat. You’ll have three days to accept the invite before it expires. This gives you the choice to select whether you want to join the group.
