How to Protect Your Money in WeChat Wallet

Although the WeChat Wallet function has brought to users great convenience, there're also risks. It somehow makes it easy for frauds to access to your WeChat account and take money from your 'Wallet', even the money you deposit in the bank!

To avoid risks, some important things you need to keep in mind when using WeChat Wallet (or Alipay and other online payment options).

Check strangers'identities

Be cautious when adding strangers to your contact list, as it increases the risk that your bank account can be hacked and wiped clean. Defrauders can also steal your name and profile picture, and then add your friends using a fake account. You will never find out, because you're blocked. So warn your friends if the fake "you" intend to borrow money from them.

Change your pin regularly

Change your pin as frequently as possible, especially if you are using your wallet account regularly. Avoid using birthdays, names, and other personal indicators.

The Benefits of WeChat Pay

1. Transfer of account

Go to bank to transfer of account is one of the most painful things you need to do?

Sometimes it's not a large account to transfer, but you still need to go to bank. It's so annoying! But if you have Wechat, to transfer account you just need to use your finger!

Input how much do you wanna transfer, and then input the password. It's done! So easy and convenient!

2. Recharge your telephone number

And then you can input your telephone number and choose how much you want to recharge. That's a very easy way to recharge. You don't need to go to the Bussiness Hall of China Mobile or China Unicom anymore once you have the Wechat pay. You can do everything in your house.

How to Send Red Packet in Wechat

The hongbao is a traditional gift in China, which literally translates as red envelope. Such envelopes contain money and are gifted to friends and relatives on festive occasions. WeChat expands the idea of hongbao and not only allows you to send a red envelope to an individual, but to create envelopes and send them into a group- just like a lottery.

1) When you open your WeChat Wallet select 'Red Packet'.

2) Then you have a choice of random amount or identical amount, depending if you want the receiving side to each get the same share out of the packet or an amount depending on their luck.
