The weekend is here and if you are a true blue Marvel fan, you are doing everything to stay away from spoilers before you catch the ultimate Endgame. And we know the internet is full of spoilers. While you would know what sites to avoid so that you don't end up ruining your movie experience, after all, you did it for so many years, we'll tell you some tips to avoid Avengers: Endgame spoilers on WhatsApp. 

Block Marvel fans in your contact

One of the best way to avoid Avengers: Endgame spoilers is to cut all ties with Marvel fans on your WhatsApp list. After all, they are the first ones to watch all Marvel movies on the very same day they get released. So obviously, they are more likely to give away spoilers. In that case, all you can do is block Marvel fans you know on your WhatsApp. This way, you can avoid yourself from being exposed to Avengers Endgame spoilers on WhatsApp.

  • Open WhatsApp.
  • Go to More > Settings > Contacts > Blocked Contacts.
  • Tap the plus icon (+) on the bottom of the screen.
  • Select contacts you wish to block.

Similarly, you can unlock them by going to WhatsApp Settings > Account > Privacy > Blocked Contacts > Tap the contact > Select ‘Unblock.’

Mute status from Marvel fans

From what I have observed, most of the spoilers come through WhatsApp status. And in case blocking someone is too much, you can simply turn mute their WhatsApp status. Go to WhatsApp Status > Tap on status > Mute status.

Avoid checking groups

I got in touch with so many Marvel fans to understand their expertise on how one should avoid Avengers: Endgame spoilers when it comes to WhatsApp messages. Almost all of them warned me against checking WhatsApp Groups. With groups, it’s very easy to target multiple users at the same time. That’s why most of the spoilers are often discussed in WhatsApp groups.

Customise group notifications

You can customise a group notification tone for messages. This is helpful when you are a part of some WhatsApp group that is likely to give away Avengers: Endgame spoilers. Go to your WhatsApp group > Tap on the group name > Custom notifications > Tick the option Use custom notifications > Notification tone.

Turn off media auto-download

Most of the 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,’ simply select ‘No media.’

Turn off notifications previews

Similarly, you can turn off notification previews if you don’t wish to come across any Avengers: Endgame spoiler in the notifications and popups. Here’s what you need to do. Go to More > Settings > Notifications > Use high priority notifications. Disable the slider for both, WhatsApp groups and messages.

Switch to Telegram

If none of the above-mentioned tips works for you, you can simply switch to a better WhatsApp alternative. The best WhatsApp alternative to cut ties with all Marvel fans is Telegram, and that’s probably where you can stay safe and save yourself from being exposed to unnecessary WhatsApp spoilers.
