WhatsApp is working on a ‘group privacy blacklist’ feature

While WhatsApp devs work on dark mode, they’re also plotting something a bit more privacy-focussed.

According to WABetaInfo, the chat app could soon debut a “group privacy blacklist” feature that’ll stop complete strangers in your contacts list from adding you to groups.

“Configuring this setting, the user could choose who can add him to groups,” the WhatsApp feature leaker explains.

“When the admin isn’t able to add the user to the group, the user will privately receive the invite.”

This will give users more control over their group membership, which, at present, can be granted by anyone to anyone.
