WeChat Receives Global TRUSTe Certification

WeChat announced recently that they have been certified by TRUSTe, a leading global Data Privacy Management (DPM) company that provides privacy assessments, certifications, monitoring tools, and compliance controls – one of the foremost social mobile apps (and websites) in the world to have done so.

The announcement is part of WeChat’s ongoing commitment to online privacy, transparency and consumer choice. WeChat is now one of the top mobile social communication apps in the world to receive this certification.
WeChat has built privacy measures that allow users to control who joins their friends list, views their information and manages how others can find them online. For higher security and control, users have the option to activate two-way authentication to initiate a chat, opt in and out of location-based services (LBS) function any time and to block out undesirable contacts.
TRUSTe powers trusted relationships between users and service providers. The TRUSTe Certified Privacy Seal granted to WeChat and its website proves WeChat’s operation has fulfilled the comprehensive privacy certification requirements established by TRUSTe. The certification process helps to ensure that WeChat is transparent and WeChat is accountable to the practices outlined in the app’s privacy policy statement.
