According to a report by Gizchina, the list includes 49 smartphones ranging across multiple brands like Apple, Samusung, Huawei and others. The list includes mobile phones from a few years back. It is highly possible that many have already updated to newer models and will not be impacted by it.

Reportedly, if any user finds a suspicious status update which violates the Terms of Service, users will have the option to report it to the team. The feature is currently under development and could soon be rolled out on WhatsApp Desktop beta.
