On November 3, netizens in many places across the country reported on social platforms that “WeChat was logged in by unknown devices” and said this wasn’t done by them nor did they know about it.
Some netizens found that the login time was in the early morning and were worried that WeChat was monitored, resulting in privacy leakage.
On the afternoon of November 3, Tencent’s WeChat official Weibo responded that this was a pure misunderstanding. The unfamiliar character is most likely the user’s own device.
Due to manufacturer settings and other reasons, the same device may display different names in the WeChat login record. In addition, in order for users not to miss messages, WeChat will automatically log in to refresh.
