Help Article | How to change group privacy settings

WhatsApp has always allowed anyone with your phone number to message you or add you to a group. This is similar to how anyone can send you an SMS message or email if they have your contact information.
By default, your group privacy settings are set to Everyone so you can easily connect with friends and family, even if they’re not in your contacts list.
For additional privacy, we’ve also added the ability to control who can add you to a group by adjusting your WhatsApp Settings.
Note: Changes to group privacy settings can’t be made on WhatsApp Web or Desktop, but the settings from your phone will be synced with WhatsApp Web and Desktop.


Change group privacy settings
  1. Go to WhatsApp Settings:
    • Android: Tap More options
       > Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups.
    • iPhone: Tap Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups.
    • KaiOS: Press Options > Settings > Account > Privacy > Groups.
  2. Select one of the following options:
    • Everyone: Everyone, including people outside of your phone's address book contacts, can add you to groups without your approval.
    • My Contacts: Only contacts in your phone's address book can add you to groups without your approval. If a group admin who's not in your phone's address book tries to add you to a group, they'll get a pop-up that says they can't add you and will be prompted to tap Invite to Group or press Continue, followed by the send button, to send a private group invite through an individual chat. You'll have three days to accept the invite before it expires.
    • My Contacts Except...: Only contacts in your phone’s address book, except those you exclude, can add you to groups without your approval. After selecting My Contacts Except… you can search for or select contacts to exclude. If a group admin you exclude tries to add you to a group, they’ll get a pop-up that says they can’t add you and will be prompted to tap Invite to Group followed by the send button to send a private group invite through an individual chat. You'll have three days to accept the invite before it expires.
  3. If prompted, tap DONE or press OK.
