WeChat, the popular mobile messaging app, is now offering a new option for people who have been frustrated by the lengthy login process.
Users can now create a “wechat account” and have it automatically generated when they sign in to their account.
“WeChat accounts are not new and are already used by hundreds of millions of people,” the company said in a blog post on Tuesday.
“They allow users to connect to each other on a global scale.
But for many, the process of connecting and creating an account takes hours and sometimes days.”
Users who sign up for an account with an existing WeChat account are asked for their password when they log in.
WeChat users are required to follow strict privacy policies that allow users and other people to access their account information, including the username, password and location.
This is to prevent spam, abuse or other suspicious activity, the company added.
Users who want to access the WeChat network to share messages, share content, and manage their accounts can sign up to a new account.
The WeChat team added that it does not share users’ details with third parties or with third-party servers.
Wechat has been criticized by some for its slow login and lack of privacy protections.
Users said they were frustrated by an inability to access information about their account, and for the app to not keep track of their location.
Weibo, the Weibo-owned social network, has also been criticized for its lack of data protection, which can be used by third parties to track users.
