Ratings and Reviews
WeChat is now a waste a space.
After this stupid update, you can longer log in to your account without it asking for your credit card information, I only used this app to text my family and friends so I don’t see any reason for credit card info, plus I don’t even own a card. If you fail to fill in this information, the app will force you to log out of WeChat, it’s like they don’t want you to use it. This update also clears all chat histories if you haven’t transferred them, all my chat histories have been completely wiped and there’s no way of retrieving it. Also, a pop up before the update said something along the lines of “if you don’t update to the latest version, you will no longer be able to use WeChat”. This update has completely ruined itself and now it has become just a waste of storage space on my phone. I highly recommend everyone to not download this app. Or until something has been done about this.
Good but improvements need to be made
There is no easy way to scroll up to the top of a person’s WeChat msgs so that if you want to find out what msg you sent or recd 6 months ago, you have to keep on scrolling for a long time. If you want to see the first msg you sent or recd, you keep on scrolling and scrolling to get to the top.
Another thing — how do you add a debit card to your wallet when you are not in China? When I try doing it, the phone number I want to add does not go thru and I get a msg saying it is the wrong format. Can anyone help?
Keep asking about credit number for private and policy
Now wechat has a new law of the private and policy . It keep wanting the credit number but my parents just don want to give the number . And why do you need money to upgrade . Why ?! . Please just don ask for money or credit number . I won ‘t be able to use wechat anymore
Today I tried again but It still wants the credit number if I don ‘t agree It force me to delete my account . I will delete it right now not use it ever whatsapp is better
