WhatsApp is the best private messaging app worldwide, It has more than 1.5 billion active users. It is available in Android, iPhone and Windows as well.
People use it to chat with their family members and loved ones, WhatsApp Group chat is also a great feature which allows you to create a group and chat with all your friends, Colleagues or classmates.
But sometimes, WhatsApp‘s group conversations can be awfully annoying when you’re dragged into them without your consent. Sometimes people add you in a group in which you are not interested or added forcefully.
It’s happened to me many times that my friend added me to a group which I am not interested in, I left that group but my friend added me again. I didn’t want to block the admin who is my friend. However, this is a way which you can use for avoiding a group but if that admin makes another group member admin then he/she can add you again.
A Stranger adds you in an unknown group, It will reveal your numbers to all other strangers. The issue is more important, in the national elections, political parties used the platform to spread their propaganda.
