Change who can add members
Group admins can change group settings to allow members to add others to a group.
  1. Open the WhatsApp group chat, then click the group name.
  2. Click Group settings.
  3. Choose to turn on Approve new members.
    • When turned on, admins must approve anyone who wants to join the group.

Note:
  • If you’re the only group admin and leave the group, another member is chosen at random to become the new admin.
  • If you rejoin the group and would like to be an admin again, you need to ask the group admin to make you one.
  • You can contact an admin of a group you’re in by clicking Group Info, then clicking the name of the admin you want to message.
