What do I need to do?

If your device is listed as an affected device:

Trainers using affected devices will need to switch to a device that meets our supported device requirements to continue to access Pokémon GO. Trainers who attempt to access Pokémon GO using any of the devices listed above will no longer be able to sign in and will see a message stating that they need to switch to a supported device.

If your device is not listed as an affected device:

No action is required. You will continue to be able to access Pokémon GO without interruption.
