How to block people from adding me to Telegram groups?

Have you been added to different Telegram groups without your consent? Are you spending lots of time deleting from Telegram groups you have been added to by people you do not even know? How to fix it?

If you have a Telegram user you never use and a user who hasn’t joined any groups earlier, you probably do not have this problem. But, the more Telegram groups you have joined, the greater the chance that you will be invite-spammed to lots of other groups. How does this work?

By default, any user on Telegram can take a look at your user and invite you to a new Telegram group. You do not get to accept or decline the invitation, instead you will be automatically added to the group. Your task remains, to delete yourself from all the unwanted groups you are added to. But, isn’t there a way to stop people from inviting you to new groups?
