However, sometimes you may be following the procedure, but your account remains blocked, leaving you wondering what to do. Well, don't despair. Read on to learn why WeChat accounts get blocked and what you can do to recover a blocked WeChat account.

Reasons Your WeChat Account Could Be Blocked

First, knowing the cause of the problem will help you avoid getting your WeChat account blocked. Below are the most common causes of WeChat account blocking:

  • You downloaded WeChat from an unofficial channel.
  • The phone number used to login or register your WeChat account is fake or provided by virtual network operators.
  • Your account is reported to send and share lewd or violent content, scams, annoying ads and inappropriate rumors.
  • You've been reported by various users a number of times.
  • Malicious plug-ins on your phone that endanger your WeChat account security, for example, Bluestack and Andy.
  • Your account being suspected of suspicious activity like tricking people and hacking their accounts.
  • Your WeChat account phone number is acting abnormally.

Recovering a Blocked Account

Sometimes you may adhere to all WeChat rules and procedures but still, find your account getting blocked. In such cases, follow the following steps to recover your WeChat account:

1. Install the Official App From the Official Wechat Web Page

As mentioned before, having an unofficial WeChat could lead to your account being blocked. To solve, follow the two simple steps:

  • Begin by uninstalling your current WeChat app.
  • Then re-install your WeChat app from the official WeChat page or download it from either Play Store or Apple Play Store.

2. Use the WeChat Verification Code Online

If your current phone number is linked to your WeChat account, you can use the online verification code to recover your WeChat account.

Go to the WeChat support page to get the verification code. Fill in your WeChat account details, such as the account ID, country, phone number (where the verification code is sent) and the CAPTCHA characters required.

You'll receive the verification code within 24 hours.

3. Contact the WeChat Support Team

If the above methods don't unblock your account, consider contacting the WeChat support team. Here you'll be needed to fill in your email address and precisely describe your issue and how you would like it fixed.

This method of unblocking may take a while and may need more patience.

4. Recover WeChat Account By Appeal on Phone

If you're unable to login to your WeChat account because you forgot your password or the email address, phone number, and account ID linked to your WeChat account fail to work, follow the steps below to recover your account.

  • On the Login screen, click on the "Unable to login" section located at the bottom.
  • Request password retrieval after agreeing to the terms and policies.
  • Fill in the feedback information. Within 24 hours, you'll receive the results on whether your appeal was approved by text message.
  • If your request is approved, you'll be provided with login details that you'll use to login to your account. You can later change these details.
