According to the latest update of the Whatsapp messenger, Whatsapp is set to come up with its new security update to its customer. The new update will rectify the current issue of irrelevant, unwanted members joining the group via a link.
An admin, basically for his easy assessment and convenience, forward a link to a large number of people to join a group by themselves. At the same time, this easy method also opens doors for cyber attacks. Hence, to tackle this issue, whatsapp has decided to soon update its version, where the Admins will be given the power to approve or decline the join request of the member, whosoever wants to join the group via link.
After the admin accepts the request of a member to join the group, the new feature will turn on the membership approval of that particular member. The new feature will allow admins to see a list of requests in another sub-section of the group info section of that particular group. Further, admins will bear autonomy to accept or reject the member listed in the request section.

Therefore, in the vision to keep the privacy of the billions safe, several versions and updates are being made by the platform. Furthermore, it is our responsibility to access social media platforms wisely to avoid falling into unnecessary traps.
