Great But Lacks Features For Group Management

WeChat is a great all in one social media app, it receives updates often. I have used it since 2016 and I am part of very large group chats (200+) and a group that spans too much.
WeChat has everything you could possibly need Ex. Calling a taxi (in China), ordering food (in China), Video games, calls, chatting, and it even basically has Tik Tok inside it.
Though it does have some downsides if you manage big groups it is nearly impossible to manage because of the lack of features that other competitors like Discord has. Things that competitors have that WeChat doesn’t include: slow mode, bans, sub chats, more roles, restrictions, etc.
Overall it’s a great app that still has much to improve on, I will continue to use it since it is how I connect to all of my school friends and family.

Blocked accounts no problem

It’s literally the best social media app I’ve used!!

Some features I love: message and post translation, deviralization of posts, levels of privacy settings of your posts, invisibility of your comments and likes of your friends’ posts from their friends who you aren’t friends with which also makes your posts’ like counts visible to only you, making stickers with your own pics or vids, easy voice message usage, really high quality video calls (much better than messengers).

Most of the low ratings say their accounts got blocked. Actually, the reason of its tough security is that it has many functionalities, such as credit card deposit, wire transfer, scan payment... For those who get blocked: 1. You could set up security accounts (in advance!) so that those friends can easily verify for you; 2. Sometimes you need to have your friends sent verification codes to your wechat, which never failed on me once, so I’m not sure why some reviews couldn’t figure it out; 3. Sometimes it makes you choose your actual wechat friends from a bunch of random accounts which is really easy.

“Suspicious Login”

WeChat has permanently blocked my account due to a “suspicious login” which is “in serious violation” of their terms of use. I am a user in the USA and haven’t used my account for a couple of years now. I live 14 miles away from where I last used my account and tried logging on today. The app was downloaded via iOS App Store obviously and it even gave me the option of resetting my password. The password reset email was in Chinese! I changed my password anyway and tried logging in to the app. All of a sudden, it says I’m permanently blocked! This is ridiculous. You send a help request and nobody answers. And then when you try to unblock yourself, it tells you you’ve tried too many time. I can’t even have a friend verify my account, yet so can make a NEW WeChat. If someone has violated the terms of use, why should they be allowed to have another account? More importantly, what term of use did I violate? Not using the app for three years? I don’t have a VPN on my phone, I used the office iOS app. I feel like they just don’t want users from the USA. I did nothing wrong! I just want someone to tell me what I did to have my account blocked and to unlock it since it has been WRONGFULLY blocked.
