WeChat Verification Error on Used Phone Number

Question:

I am trying to set up my WeChat account for the first time ever. The lady who had number before me already had a wechat account but it was a long time ago.

Wechat asked me to re-activate my account by giving the number of another wechat user (who has had a wechat account for at least 6 months) to verify my account. Did find someone that fills this requirement. I entered my friend’s number but the verification failed. I have a message that says “Verification error – Assisted account has had non-compliance record. Choose another WeChat account to assist verification. Go back to homepage and try again“.

I do not know anyone else who has a WeChat account. What can I do now to still set up my account?

Answer:

Thank you for your kind attitude in the question. There is a problem of friend verification on WeChat unfortunately. We have already got many questions about that recently and complaints about the issue. I believe the number has blocked by WeChat Staff because of prolonged inactivity. The problem is not occurring the application but your account and WeChat servers. This can be only fixed by WeChat staff (since it’s an completely an account issue) but unfortunately they are not very good at responding their customers/users.

How to Fix?

We have some recommendations for you while contacting WeChat and we will provide how to contact them step by step here:

  • Tap here to go to WeChat support.
  • Select your “Operating System” at Platform.
  • Select your “Country” at Region.
  • Select “Unable to Login” at Categories.
  • Select “Account Blocked” at next section of categories.
  • In description please give detailed information about your problem. Also tell Wechat staff to phone numbers (of your friends) which you have given for verification.
  • Get a screenshot of your problem. (Especially screenshot of the error which includes “Verification error – Assisted account has had non-compliance record. Choose another WeChat account to assist verification. Go back to homepage and try again“ text. Upload the screenshot to the support page.
  •  Type your Phone number with + format to the first field of step 2. Like (+19xxxxxxx)
  • Write a valid email address to email field. (An email which you check daily will be very good.)
  • Submit the form.
  • Go to App Store or Google Play and complain about the situation with a review.

      Since privacy and security issues, we have removed your email from your comment. You will need to reinstall the WeChat first. We recommend you to give a try with official release from the website of WeChat first. This will help you much better about the issue. WeChat have problems with verification already.

      We recommend you to check your mobile network in the first stage. Try change it to mobile network and Wifi and try register again. Unfortunately there are problems with some GSM operators of WeChat messenger. Especially with operators who are located out of China. Sometimes people can’t even register because of this. This issue can be related with your phone too. You can hard reset your phone. If you don’t know how to hard reset of your phone, please reply this comment and we are going to guide you about that. Just leave information about the brand of your phone.

      Hello Ken,
      This is one of common WeChat error due to some conflicts with WeChat and foreign GSM operators. Unfortunately Wechat hasn’t provide any good solution for this problem for years. We believe they should improve their network at different countries to fix this problem. Unfortunately you will need to contact to Wechat and ask them to enable your service manually.

      If you cannot enter to WeChat with your ID and password, it means your account has blocked by Wechat. Please see our guideline for this issue: How to Unblock WeChat Account

      Yeah, it is actually a serious risk to reinstall WeChat because of several reasons. You can get problems with:

      1. Errors in login stage.
      2. Verification errors.
      3. Don’t receive verification codes
      4. Stuck at security problems.
