I Mistakenly left a WhatsApp Group I created and I was the only admin of the group. How do I re-add myself as the Group Admin Privilege?
Once you leave any WhatsApp Group willingly or mistakenly you lose your rights as Admin. It doesn’t matter whether you created the group or not. But the good news is that it is possible to become admin again after leaving your WhatsApp group.
WhatsApp automatically assigns the admin role to another person when you (the group admin) leave the group. Chat the new group admin up to add you to the group. You can also Join the group using the group link.
After being re-added to the group, simply check the group information for the new admin. Chat the new group admin up and request to be made admin once again. Congratulations! You have successfully recovered your position in the group.

Another way to recover your admin position is to make make all the group members except you to leave the group. This will automatically give you the admin role.
The third way (out of the three ways) to become admin again after leaving a WhatsApp group is to make the current admin leave the group. The admin role will then possibly be assign to you.
After you are being made admin, you can decide to remove the Acting Admin or leave him/here. You may also want to add someone very close to you as group admin incase anything goes wrong again. After all, WhatsApp allows you to promote any group member to the admin position.
Question: What if the person WhatsApp assigns the ground admin role is not active on WhatsApp? You will have to call him/her or wait for the person to come back online.
- Always backup your group link somewhere.
- Don’t be the only Admin; ensure to add someone you can access admin.
- If you are the only admin, make sure you are close to group members so that they can add you back in time of trouble.
- Always check before leaving any group so that you don’t leave your own group.
