Have you ever been added to a WhatsApp group without your consent? It’s annoying, right? If yes, the latest WhatsApp update helps you to enable a feature that can stop people from adding you to unwanted WhatsApp Groups.

WhatsApp is one of the best and free messaging apps in the world, with WhatsApp on your Android or iOS device text and voice messaging, voice and video calls and even sharing of media files can all be done with ease.
