About community admin controls
Note: Communities on WhatsApp is available in limited countries and may not be available to you yet. Check back to see when communities will be available in your area.
Community admins are responsible for creating and managing their communities on WhatsApp. To keep their community safe for all members, admins will have access to tools like:
- Admin management: Promote or dismiss other community members as admins, as well as manage community information like the name and profile photo.
- Group management: Choose which groups become part of their community by forming new groups, adding pre-existing groups, or removing groups from the community.
- Member management: Report and remove abusive accounts from the community.
- Community deactivation: Deactivate the entire community. Only the admin who created the community can deactivate the community.
