WhatsApp announced a new feature a few weeks back that allows you to control people from adding you to WhatsApp Group chats. Users can stop others from adding them to Groups without prior consent. The feature has bee launched worldwide on both iOS and Android.
How to Stop Others from Adding you to WhatsApp Group Chats
First of all open WhatsApp on your phone
Go to Settings, click on Accounts and then Privacy
Click on Groups and then select the option that best suits you
The option given asks others to first send you invitation that can be approved or rejected
The options are
Nobody (this stops anyone from adding you to a group without
My contacts (only your contacts can add you to a group without an invitation)
Anyone (Anyone can add you to a group without an invitation)
So the new privacy feature prevents others from adding you to any group without permission. If you are tired of being added to different groups without your consent, you can now control it. Update WhatsApp to the latest version and get hold of the new features offered by the company.
