WhatsApp changed privacy settings last night without warning. This means this group and all other groups you are in are now open to everyone. So please change your settings. Here’s some background and how to change your settings.
Settings were updated last night without warning.
Its group settings include “everyone” by default so people you don’t know can add you to a group without you ever knowing. These may include scammers, loan sharks
You can change the default settings as follows:
- Go to WhatsApp:
- Go into Settings
- Go to Account
- Go to Privacy
- Go to Groups
- Change from (Everyone) to (My Contacts)
I checked mine and they had all changed to being all open to everyone.
Please share with your other groups.
