"CAREFUL - Spyware!"
- nothing (see below)
- seemed very practical at first, but then turned out to be a spy tool; used the expression "free speech" - connection reset, tried more: "Democracy" - connection reset, "Tibet" - connection reset... This Thing is controlling what you write and censors it!
- deinstalled but it's still running! This thing hijacked my tablet, had to format and reinstall everything!
- DO NOT DOWNLOAD!!!
As I have many friends in China I wanted to try out Weixin to stay in touch (as the Communist terror government has cut them off Facebook and the like). When I saw that it's Tencent, suspicion grew but unfortunately I was stupid enough to still try it...
It seems to work perfectly... You have a great tool to contact many friends in many way... Until you figure out, that the communists are deciding for you what you are allowed to talk about... I mentioned "free speech" in a Chat between me (in Switzerland) and a friend (in Germany) - the server reset the connection!!! We tried many more expressions after that ("Democracy", "freedom", "Tibet", and more) always the same: I was cut from the server, so was my friend!
Deinstalled it immediatly when I figured this out. Later checked the Task Manager for something else, guess what I found... WEIXIN WAS STILL RUNNING THERE - weeks after I had deinstalled it!
This is an extremely dangerous spytool, DO NOT USE!!!
