WhatsApp is introducing new controls that will allow you to decide who can add you to group messages.

According to reports, users can control who has permission to add them to groups and lets you stop people from adding you to groups if they’re not a contact in your address book. You can also prevent everyone from being able to add you to groups, or else leave the option open to all.

To enable the new protection, users can go to Settings then tap Account > Privacy > Groups then choose one of the three options: “Nobody,” “My Contacts” or “Everybody.” 

“Nobody” means you’ll have to approve joining every group to which you’re invited, WhatsApp says, and “My Contacts” means only users you already know can add you to groups.

The feature is a part of a host of changes the service is making to try and stop misinformation from easily spreading.
