As of November 30, WhatsApp will no longer be compatible with 35 phone models from brands such as iPhone, LG and Samsung. We tell you if your phone is on the list and what you should do

WhatsApp announced the list of phones that will no longer be compatible with the messaging application as of November 30. The developers of the app explained that they constantly discontinue support for computers that are too old to be able to run WhatsApp correctly.

In this way they ensure that the phones are capable of supporting the latest app updates and that the user experience is the best possible.

“Devices and software change frequently, so we regularly review the operating systems we support and make updates accordingly,” the WhatsApp website reads.

They add that this also occurs in the case of those devices that, due to their age, are no longer receiving security updates and are therefore more vulnerable to any type of computer attack. By discontinuing WhatsApp support, it ensures that security breaches that the team may have do not affect the performance of the application and therefore users are not exposed to attacks.

They point out that before a phone stops being compatible with WhatsApp, the user will receive a series of notifications alerting them that they need to update their phone to a more recent one that is compatible with the latest updates. You will also be given the option to make a backup so that you can preserve all received chats and files.
