How To Leave Whatsapp Group Silently

Have you ever been added to a group chat on WhatsApp that you really didn’t want to be a part of? Maybe it was a group for an event that has already passed, or perhaps it’s a group with hundreds of messages a day that you just can’t keep up with. Either way, leaving a WhatsApp group can sometimes feel awkward. However, not many people know that there is a way to leave a group silently, without notifying others. Here’s how.

Steps to Leave a WhatsApp Group Silently

Step 1: Mute the Group

The first step in leaving a WhatsApp group silently is to mute the group. This will stop group notifications and will make your departure less noticeable. Here is how you can do it:

  • Open the WhatsApp group that you want to leave.
  • Tap on the group name at the top to open the group info screen.
  • Scroll down and tap on Mute notifications.
  • Select the length of time you want to mute the group for. If you’re planning on leaving the group permanently, you can select ‘Always’.

Step 2: Change Your Group Notification Settings

After muting the group, the next step is to change your group notification settings to further minimize the visibility of your departure. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Open the WhatsApp group that you’re planning to leave.
  • Tap on the group name at the top to open the group info screen.
  • Scroll down and select Group settings.
  • Select Send Messages and then choose Only Admins.

Step 3: Leave the Group

Now that you’ve muted the group and changed your group notification settings, you’re ready to leave the group. Follow these steps:

  • Go back to the group info screen.
  • Scroll down to the bottom of the screen and tap on Exit Group.
  • A dialog box will appear asking you to confirm if you wish to leave the group. Tap EXIT to confirm your choice.

And there you have it – you have now left the WhatsApp group without drawing attention to your departure. While this method doesn’t completely eliminate the departure message, it does make it less noticeable, especially in active groups where messages are frequently coming in. Happy silent exiting!
