Method 1: Mute the Group Text
The first method to block a group text is to mute the conversation. Muting the conversation will stop notifications from the group text, but you will still be a part of the group. This method is useful if you want to stay in the group but do not want to receive constant notifications. To mute a group text, open the conversation and tap the three dots in the top right corner. Next, tap “Mute Notifications.” From here, you can choose to mute notifications for a specific amount of time or indefinitely. By muting the conversation, you can block a group text without leaving the group.
Method 2: Leave the Group Text
If muting the conversation is not enough, you may want to consider leaving the group text altogether. Leaving the group text will remove you from the conversation, and you will no longer receive notifications or messages from the group. To leave a group text, open the conversation and tap the three dots in the top right corner. Next, tap “Leave Conversation.” You will be asked to confirm if you want to leave the group, and once you confirm, you will be removed from the conversation.
Method 3: Block the Sender
If the group text is coming from a specific sender, you can block the sender to stop receiving messages from them. Blocking the sender will not only stop messages from the group text, but it will also stop messages from the sender in general. To block a sender, open the conversation with the sender and tap their name at the top of the screen. From here, tap “Block” and confirm that you want to block the sender. By blocking the sender, you can effectively block a group text.
