The problem is not about the verification. I think Laurana has misunderstood the question. If your problem is about friend verification, you will need to check here: WeChat Asking a Friend to Verify Account

Why WeChat Stops in Security Check in

How to Fix WeChat Security Problem

Firstly please check if there are applications which are working at background. You can use a cleaner application for this. Samsung devices have this feature generally. If you are using an antivirus or antimalware program/application on your phone please disable it for sometime until you complete the registration.

Try reinstall the application. How to Reinstall WeChat

If you cannot fix the problem with these steps, please contact WeChat support as Laurana told (Please go to Laurana’s post below and take a look at steps for contacting WeChat Staff). However 5th step must be “Others” instead of “Unable to receive SMS code”.


If you are having the problem with the verification, you can see the Laurana’s post below.


Other Solutions for WeChat Stops in Security Check in Problem

Welcome to How to Chat Online Q&A. I assume you are meaning verification by security check in. WeChat has officially told that there are some reasons of this problem.

  • Using VPN or Proxy service on your phone or another application which will help you to have fake location. Solution: Remove these apps from your device and try register WeChat again.
  • You have selected wrong country while you were asking for verification code. Solution: Check your phone number. After you select your country, you do not need to enter the country code. Double check your selected country.
  • Do you have any antivirus or security app on your phone? WeChat also explained that such applications may block the verification message. Please disable it and try again. Solution: Disable those protection apps for sometime or remove them while you are registering. Reinstall or enable these apps when you are done with registering.
  • You have reached the SMS verification limit. You can ask verification code for limited numbers. If you exceed this, you will need to wait for 24 hours. Nothing will change this though. (Reinstalling won’t help you since your number will be banned for 24 hours from verification service. Not the device…) Solution: Unfortunately there is no solution for this. You need to wait for 24 hours.
