WeChat FAQ

WeChat (or Weixin) is the hottest new chat app out there. We’ve written about it a few times before. Today we want to get Moments straightened out. There seems to be some confusion as to who can see the photos that you show in your Moments’ albums. Here is the pathway to the FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions):

1. In any area of WeChat, look for the gear icon on the lower right. Press it:

There are several sections for Moments.

4. We would suggest that you read all about Moments before you start using WeChat. We love the app but we can see that some users are having problems with privacy. Look for the FAQ that reads ‘How private is my photo album?’ :

Look for the FAQ on your photo album.

5. Read over this section and make sure you understand it. If you need help, just ask us. We’ll do our best to explain it:

TIP: If you want to send a photo to someone, then it’s completely private. Use the attachment button (the + icon on the lower right) to attach a photo. That way, only you and the person you send it to can see it. Make sure you choose the right person!

  1. I would like to know how to delete certain parts of my chat. It is getting very long and heavy and I am having trouble at times opening the program.I have certain information I wish to keep and the rest I would like to get rid of.

    1. WeChat doesn’t offer a backup for anything other than contacts. You can backup your chat history for seven days and then download it to another device, you might want to try that, but you can’t save the history itself for longer periods of time. If you have important data, do a screen capture of the data then download it to your computer. Hope this helps. Thanks for commenting.
