Generally a good app. A lot of useful mini programs, gifs, emotes, etc. WeChat pay is indespendible in China. But sometimes the overdone security features are very frustrating. I tried to sign in with a new phone and typed in the account ID and password. I didn't fail the password even one time but my account got locked for 3 days for "unusual activity". I did nothing wrong but now I have to wait. I can't even submit a ticket without a Chinese ID. It's stupid. I even approved it on the old phone

Stupid 'security verification', it requires an existing WeChat user to scan your code. I don't have any Chinese friends near me, so I can't set up an account. I wanted WeChat for local Chinese-owned businesses like restaurants... Even up until that point, it was slow and kept crashing at the first screen. Can't even open the app, it freezes up completely. Terrible app

WeChat is great for texting and has an incredible range of cute, free stickers. However, after less than a week, I've been locked out of my account twice for "suspicious activity" and need a friend to help me log back in through some convoluted process. Their help center says if you use Project Fi, then they recommend using a different phone number to connect... Unfortunately, this is also the only phone number I have. I like the app, but the login process really ruins the experience.
