WeChat Surveillance Explained

Publisher The Citizen Lab
Author Miles Kenyon
Summary A report on how WeChat conducts surveillance of images and files on its platform. Key findings include that users will not often know that their messages are being censored and that China-registered accounts often face more censorship than those registered elsewhere. Privacy policies and terms of service documents associated with WeChat may not adequately inform users about how their data may be used, which may conflict with the policies of apps outside of China.
Excerpt WeChat users are under surveillance on content that is politically sensitive in China.
