Important in China trip, but censored, and redundant in for US.
It's important to have a social media and free messaging platform one use in China & other repressive countries, where All US social mediaGoogle services and & US websites are blocked, but it is disturbing to see how fast any real news posted gets removed by the censors.
And there is no distinction between private messaging message and social group messages, so if you join a group you get spammed every time a message is posted.
This unilateral notification policy is OK in China because my data was turned off, and I only had internet access on rare occasions, so I was't aware of the the spamming. But at home in the US, with constant internet and data when I haven't got internet, between, it is obnoxious. I'm turning notifications off.
Best social app with all necessary privacy control by default
Wechat overcomes problems of all other social network apps including Facebook. It is easy of use. It has privacy control by default. You can easily control who see your message; easily create a group to discuss things without worries about other irrelevant people seeing it. You can easily find what you posted and others if you have permission... You can easily call or video chat with others too... Highly recommended. Be careful it is addictive:)
Terribly upset about account security checkup
Wechat app restricts the number of accounts that can sign up/log in on one cellphone. My friends used my cellphone to log in their accounts when their phones ran on low battery, but their accounts were restricted as indicated I was using a pirated copy/legal version of wechat app, which of course was not the case. Along with my account, we have to use different cellphone number to unfreeze our accounts, one cellphone number can be used to do so only once. What's worse? My account was restricted as before as I was told I had violated the signup rules for registering trash accounts!!!!! I've been using my account for a way long time!!!!! If I can choose, I will not hesitate to rate -5stars!!!!
