Users locked in to a group or group are unable to leave that group.
Functions are available for system integrators to add membership enforcement to other processes.

  2. Upload plugin files to your /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  3. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress


How do I enforce group membership?
