In this tutorial, we will guide you through the process of removing yourself from a group text on your iPhone. Group texts can sometimes become overwhelming, and if you no longer wish to be a part of a particular group conversation, this article will show you how to do it with ease.

Step 1: Open the Messages App

To begin, locate and tap on the Messages app on your iPhone’s home screen. The Messages app icon resembles a green speech bubble.

Step 2: Find the Group Text

Once you have opened the Messages app, scroll through your conversations to find the group text that you want to remove yourself from. Tap on it to open the conversation.

Step 3: Tap on the Info Button

In the top-right corner of the screen, you will see an “i” button. Tap on it to access more information about the group text.

Step 4: Select “Leave this Conversation”

Scroll down in the Group Details screen until you see “Leave this Conversation” option. Tap on it.


If you do not see the option “Leave this Conversation,” it may be because your iPhone is running an older version of iOS. In that case, proceed to Step 5 below.

Step 5: Turn off Notifications

If Step 4 did not provide you with an option to leave the conversation, go back to the Group Details screen and toggle off “Do Not Disturb” and “Hide Alerts.” This will prevent notifications from appearing for that specific group text.


Please keep in mind that turning off notifications does not remove you from the group text entirely. You will still receive messages, but your phone will not notify you about them.

Step 6: Confirm Your Decision

A pop-up message will appear, asking you to confirm if you want to leave the conversation. Tap on “Leave this Conversation” again to confirm.

Step 7: You’re Done!

Congratulations! You have successfully removed yourself from the group text on your iPhone. You will no longer receive any messages or notifications from that particular group conversation.

Important: Leaving a group text does not prevent others in the conversation from continuing the discussion without you. They will not be notified that you have left, and they can still see the previous messages you sent before leaving.

Troubleshooting Tips:

  • If you are unable to leave a group text using the steps above, it may be because your iPhone is running an older version of iOS. In that case, consider updating your iOS software to access the latest features and improvements.
  • If you have already left a group text but are still receiving messages, try restarting your iPhone. Sometimes, a simple restart can resolve such issues.

We hope this tutorial has helped you remove yourself from a group text on your iPhone. Now you can enjoy a clutter-free Messages app without being constantly bombarded with notifications from unwanted group conversations.
