2. My contacts – this restricts the group invitation to only your contacts and
3. Anyone – with this, anyone can add you to a group without an invitation, remain as it is now
How to set it up

To enable this feature, follow these steps:

  • Open WhatsApp on your phone, and go to Settings > Accounts > Privacy.
  • Tap on Groups, and select the option that suits you best from the three above stated options.
