WhatsApp can prove to be overwhelming, even though it is the most popular messaging app. We can get so many WhatsApp messages that we have to mut our chats. Thankfully, this option is available on Facebook’s messaging platform.

What can I do to silence WhatsApp mentions?
WABetaInfo is the popular portal that provides information about all things related to messaging apps. When someone quotes you from a previous message or mentions your name, it is possible to mute the notification. This is what you should do:
First: Go to WhatsApp for Android or iOS.
Step 2 Select the WhatsApp group you are most concerned about, even though it is muted.
Step 3 – Now tap the group name to scroll down and find the member who mentions you often.
Step 4 – From the many options available, choose the Message option. This will open a chat window with that person.
Step 5 Tap the name of the person, scroll down to view the Mute notification option. This will allow you to disable notifications coming from this person on both personal and group chats.
This hack can be used to mut individual members of the group so you don’t get any notifications from them or other WhatsApp groups.
