Not enjoying a text message group you’ve been included in on your iPhone? Want to stop being bombarded with notifications and leave the group? If so, you’re in luck. In this tutorial, we’ll walk you through the steps of how to leave a group message on iPhone. We’ll also tell you a few things to keep in mind if you’re leaving a texting group.
First, let’s go over the steps you need to take to leave a group text conversation.
To start up the messaging app on your device and view your messages, tap Messages.
Look through the list of your conversations and select the conversation you’d like to leave.
To access and change details of your text message group, tap the "i" button in the top-right corner.
Near the bottom of your screen, you’ll see a button that says Leave this Conversation. Tap this button once to remove yourself from the group.
That’s all you need to do to remove yourself from an iPhone text message group. Pretty easy, right? There are, however, a few things you should keep in mind if you’re thinking about removing yourself from a group message. Let’s go over those things next.
Once you leave a group message on your iPhone, it will tell the other members of the group that you’ve left the conversation. Only go through this process if you’re okay with them knowing you’re leaving.
If you’d rather people didn’t know you left the conversation, you can mute notifications instead of leaving. On the same page as where you could tap “Leave this Conversation” you can instead enable “Do Not Disturb.” This will make it so you don’t receive notifications from this conversation, but are still technically part of the group.
That does it for everything you need to know about removing yourself from a group text message conversation on your iPhone. Check out the other tutorials on our iPhone texting course if you’re interested in learning more.
