Steps to stop people from joining a WhatsApp group
The following steps will ensure no random user can join your community.
1. Change admin privileges
Only group admins can add or invite new people to a group on WhatsApp. So, you may have to change the current admins to restrict troublesome guys from entering your WhatsApp group.
2. Reset the invitation link
Only the admins have access to the invitation link of a WhatsApp group. If other people find the link on social media platforms or public forums, they too can invite new users to the group.
So, it’s best to keep changing the link regularly.
You can reset it in the menu by tapping Group info >> Invite via link >> Reset link.
3. Keep it private
Once you have your new invitation link to the group, make sure it stays private. If any admin shared it publicly, reset the link again to make it invalid.
Now, those were the three steps you need to stop people from joining your WhatsApp group. Implement them today and keep your community relevant and spam-free always.
