"This link contains unusual characters". If WhatsApp detects a suspicious link, the message will be marked with a red label, indicating to the user that the link is suspicious. According to WABetaInfo, the app is now receiving suspicious link detection functionality. WhatsApp is working on this new feature to curb those suspicious links spreading such news. This will protect users from phishing sites which might try and steal your personal data, such as your logins and passwords.
If you decide to ignore the alert and click the link anyway, WhatsApp will try to warn you again in a pop-up window.

The feature will surely help users to avoid spam links that are forwarded every day in groups and to normal chats in plain sight.
Right now, messages sent on WhatsApp don't have any kind of labels on them.
