Unfortunately WeChat has problems with new user registration and sometimes it blocks existing accounts on the application. There is not much to do against that except finding friends can contacting WeChat staff. Because of new terms of the application only individuals who are living in the same country with you can help you to reactivate your account. Contacting WeChat is not helping much to unblock accounts. One of our visitors managed to unblock her accounts but her account blocked once more. She asked us a question that pressing “the initiator himself has contacted me” will block both phones. You can see her question below.
My account has been blocked for the second time and I do not know what’s the reason. The first time I use another phone number to unblock. I’m afraid that if now I use back that number to press “the initiator himself has contacted me” will both phone will be blocked? And I want to know what’s the reason?

Thank you for the question and I am sorry that you have faced with this problem since this is very hard to fix at the moment. I believe WeChat should review their security policies as soon as possible. There are too much users who are having similar problems with this awesome application. I have asked my other colleagues in How to Chat Online if they have knowledge about this “the initiator himself has contacted me” thingie. We are not sure about it. However this is risky as you said. So I can only tell that I wouldn’t press it (the initiator himself has contacted me) if I were you because WeChat started to get every action as suspicious activity. I know this answer won’t help you.
I want to know what’s the reason?
No one knows the exact reason of account blocks on WeChat. However there are some facts that we have detected which end up with account block.
- Changing the region of the phone.
- Using WeChat account in an Android emulator.
- Visiting abroad.
- Passive account for 6 months or a year.
- Changing the sim card of the phone.
Actually these are not acceptable reasons of account blocks, however when users do it, they can face with this problem. As I have already told above, WeChats should leave current security system or review it soon. Otherwise they are going to lose their international users. These are facts we have detected until now though.
