Long suspected, finally confirmed, your info belongs to the Chinese government.
While WeChat is available for use everywhere, it is the most popular messaging app in China, of course it’s not exactly a fair competition since many social media and messaging apps are blocked by the Chinese government. With China’s blocking of these other apps and WeChat’s growth, it’s no surprise that there has been suspicion that WeChat has been sharing user’s info. That is no longer a suspicion.
Frightening isn’t it?
