In June, WABetaInfo, the website responsible for disseminating information about WhatsApp launches, reported that the app is developing a feature to not notify users when they leave groups.

The news was already expected by many people, and the best part is that only the admin will be notified. Unlike before, where the entire group received the message. So, if you intend to be more discreet when leaving a group, know that it is now possible.

In this sense, the WhatsApp feature was discovered in May, however, it was only available on Android devices. Thus, the platform ensures that everyone will have access soon.

How to recover your blocked WhatsApp account

To recover the lost or stolen account, it is necessary to enter WhatsApp with the phone number and verify the user with a six-digit passkey, received by SMS.

By doing this, the person using your account will be automatically logged out, as once the extra security code is incorrectly entered in the two-step confirmation, the messenger locks the account for 12 hours.

Finally, it is worth mentioning that after this period, the WhatsApp account can be used normally.
