How to Remove Someone from a WhatsApp Group Without Notifying?

There is no way to remove someone from a WhatsApp without notify them. Since the group chat history is available in their chat list, the information will be notified there when he/she is removed from the group and will be notified to every other member in the group too. However, there will not be any special push notification message or an alert sent to that person or other group members.

But the group chat list will not be deleted from their WhatsApp. The list will be there with all the previous messages, but the person will not be able to type and send any message to the group or cannot see any new messages. The chat will also show a small message saying ‘You are removed by (member name, who removed you)’.

But of course, if you are removing someone from a group which not at all active, then that person and any member in the group will know about the removal until they check the group chat. Once they open the chat they can see a small notification within the chat. But one thing, if the group is flooded with so many messages after the removal, then it is difficult to find that notification. However, the removed person still has the chat history on his/her phone.

So whenever they open the chat, they can see that notification. Since the removed person will not get any new message further and they can see the notification there. They can see the message ‘ removed you’ ( – it is the name of the admin). Also, they cannot see the text box to enter the chat within the group.

The only option available for them is to read the chat or to delete the entire chat.

As i mentioned in my different post regarding the hidden features of WhatsApp, the company is adding more features all the time since WhatsApp is now the primary messaging application for all mobile phones. Also, this is one of the most requested features, so we may hope that WhatsApp may include these features in their future update.

Recently we noticed that WhatsApp is including some features that users are constantly requesting. For example, even after adding the group call feature in their application. Users are complaining about the issue that, the option to make a call from the group chat window is now available.

Now, WhatsApp now fixed it by adding a call button in the group chat and the feature and started rolling out to the users which make that feature more useful and easier. So in the same was this feature also expected to be updated more effectively. We will update that when it is released.

  1. Good Evening,

    I would like to question that How to remove existing group member from Group without noticiation.
    Please guide me

  2. I am one of 3 administrators on a WhatsApp group. One of them deleated me. Is there a way of knowing which one did the delegating?
    Thanks lizzy

    • Hi currently you cannot find it. But if you know someone in the group, them personally ask them who removed you. They will get the notification there.

  3. This is one very bad feature of what’s up , why do I have to inform other members of a group if I delete someone ? Sometimes such groups are used for business in such classes it sends a negative feedback to other members about the group or if someone leaves the same happens ; this should be taken care of

  4. I have been removed by admin of my society without any reason. That is residents group and I m the flat owner and it is must for me to be in the group so that I can get information related to society. Admin has removed me and now he is not ready to add me. Where should I complaint ?

  5. Just change your profile name, delete your profile picture and exit the group. It will announce that the new name you gave have exited the group. Few will bother about it because they won’t even recall who you are.

  6. Hi Vipin your article is just awesome. I got all the information that I was not knowing about whatsapp group. Thanks for this blog.

  7. I think have been removed from a WhatsApp group. I did not receive a notification but am still listed as a participant. Is it possible?

  8. It is most unfortunate that any admin can remove a group member with out consent, This is totally illegal. There should be a provision to make it illegal and punishable if any member removes any other member from the group without his/her consent

  9. Now i got to know that its possible, I was in trouble, I have lots of groups and I am the admin of 4 groups but some people are annoying I want to remove than but due to good relationship I couldn’t. But now I will do it thanks for sharing this information.

  10. Since a group member is included with his/her consent it’s grossly illegal to remove him/her without consent. It’s damaging to his/her prestige and reputation and this defect has to be corrected immediately.
