If a user set the privacy settings to the Nobody, the user has to approve joining every WhatsAppgroup to which they are invited.
If someone tries to add you to groups and your settings do not allow it, they will be forced to send you a private message with an invite link. For people outside of contacts, or for people who select "Nobody", users must invite you to a group over DM. "My Contacts" would allow people in the user's contact list to add them in a group.

Invites are made in an individual chat and are valid three days before expiring. Previously, the user would be automatically be added to a group without their consent and would be up to them to quit or stay.
The platform has been testing a new feature that highlights messages as "frequently forwarded" if they have been shared five or more times.
