Deletes your account for inactivity


So Wechat decides at one point within their short spanned dying lifespan, that to further appeal to their customers and fuel their selfish, blinded, narrow minded and worthless objectives, they think that “hey, so in order to really reel in our customers, let’s just stab them in the back and deactivate their account after a period of inactivity, forcing them to create a NEW account, then having to add all their contacts AGAIN along with deleting their conversations prior to the disabling of account. Freaking A for awesome idea”. This was by far one of the most dim witted, pointless and worthless updates to implement to an app that revolves around communicating with people especially when overseas as there are countries that restrict the use of facebook or other social networking applications. I had faith and interest in this app, where I could rely on it’s straight forward, easy to use functions to send/receive messages overseas. But alas, this simple task has completely become void as your account is susceptible to being deactivated at any time, whenever Wechat desires to apply it’s sadistic lust to inconvenience all their customers however they please.

Fix this mess you have created.

Very Poor App. Don’t waste your time


Downloaded app then created account. Used it for a couple of days then deleted it as found it not very useful. Decided to give it a second chance and re installed app. Signed into my account then account was blocked due to possible suspicious activity which I get the security measures side of things. So I verified my identity using password then mobile number sms verification only to be directed to another security measure which requires another we chat member to verify my identity. Seriously are you guys joking? Account is blocked now as only new to wechat and did not have chance to make new friends via your app not enough time to recommend people to downloading your app!! As a result have to delete your app even though I verified my identity. The mentality of the so called genius who created the security measures. I’m laughing so much as it’s such a joke. HONESTLY people reading my REVIEW DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS APP!! Only left one star because you cannot leave a big fat ZERO!!!!!

One of the best of its kind


I'm going to make this short, this testing app is one of the best,many many functions and better than facebuk twittur etc. the people who don't like this app is cos they never used an app as grate as wechat. Other people that give it low rating is just trying to make this app seem bad and say "it's a scam" privacy alert blah blah,but it's not it's grate, there's nothing to worry about, ppl get blocked is cos they don't know how to use it, i have 2 accounts with no problem, and it tells u to link ur bank account cos it's a feature on wechat where u can pay by scanning stuff, even shops or restaurants like McDonald's use wechat to pay and etc, and others that don't like it is cos the don't understand Chinese. Haha sad
