If you are a true blue Sacred Games fan, you may be doing everything to stay away from spoilers before you catch season 2. And we know the internet is full of spoilers. While you would know what websites to avoid so that you don't end up ruining your binge-watching experience, I will also tell you some tips to avoid Sacred Games season 2 spoilers on WhatsApp.
Those looking to stay away from Sacred Games 2 spoilers on WhatsApp can turn off notification previews and decrease their chances of coming across Sacred Games 2 spoilers in the form of notifications and pop-ups. Here's what you need to do: Go to More > Settings > Notifications > Use high priority notifications. Now, disable the slider for both WhatsApp groups and messages.
From what I have observed in the past, most of these movies and show spoilers come through WhatsApp status. And if blocking someone on WhatsApp is extreme or unreasonable for you, you can turn mute their WhatsApp status instead. All you need to do is Go to WhatsApp Status tab > Tap on Status > Mute Status.
Most of the movie and TV show spoilers come in the form of photos and videos. So, the easy way out would be to turn off media auto-download. This way, no photo or video will be downloaded automatically. Go to WhatsApp > More > Settings > Data and Storage usage. Under ‘When using mobile data’ and ‘When connected on Wi-Fi,’ select ‘No media.’
Time for a smart hack! Did you know you can customise a group notification tone for messages? It is helpful when you are a part of some WhatsApp group that is likely to give away Sacred Games spoilers. Go to your WhatsApp group > Tap on the group name > Custom notifications > Tick the option Use custom notifications > Notification tone.
For the sake of this story, I got in touch with some Movie buffs and binge-watchers in my contact to understand their expertise on how to avoid movie and TV show spoilers on WhatsApp. And guess what? Almost all of them warned me against checking WhatsApp groups. Sacred Games 2 memes giving away spoilers are soon expected to flood WhatsApp groups, thus increasing the chances of exposing yourself to these spoilers.
If none of our above-mentioned tips works for you, the final option would be to switch to a better WhatsApp alternative. And one of the best WhatsApp alternatives to cut ties with all Sacred Games fans is Telegram. On Telegram, you can stay safe and save yourself from being exposed to unnecessary WhatsApp conversations and spoilers.
