WeChat Instructions & Guide
A Few of the Many Things Possible with WeChat
|Sign Up To Create An Account|
Sometimes, you're done here! Other times, we enter a security check. Often, the security check is the most difficult part of the WeChat signup. This is because it involves using someone else who has a registered WeChat to authenticate and verify your new account. Often, our teachers struggle to find someone else who can do this.
We recommend using our Facebook group, the House of Qkids to connect with other teachers in advance and find a teacher that can help verify your account. This provides an opportunity to not only engage with our veteran teachers, but to also create a friendship or potential community for yourself as you enter into the world of ESL. We understand it can be tedious, and we are sorry for the inconvenience!
|You can have a WeChat user, such as one of our current teachers, scan your QR Code!|
|If you can find a friend or a teacher you're comfortable with, you can send them a private message with your number to verify your account|
Here are some Frequently Asked Questions:
Will contacts see my phone number?
No, your phone number is only used to sign in. It is not shared with those you add.
Is WeChat free?
Yes! WeChat is free to use and communicate on. Please be aware that WeChat requires either an internet connection or cellular service to communicate and connect.
Do I need a phone to create a WeChat account?
Unfortunately a phone is required for WeChat; however, there are desktop versions you can use after creating an account on mobile.
I can't seem to get the security check to pass - Please help!
Kindly send an email to our hiring staff or contact us in our Facebook group, we will be more than happy to assist you.
It says my phone is incompatible - What can I do?
Older versions of phones that haven't been updated in awhile may display this error message. Please attempt a software update and try once more. In the case of older phones, it may be that the phone is simply incompatible with WeChat. In this situation, please contact our hiring staff for additional information.
WeChat ID is your unique name that friends can search for to find you. Wechat ID can be changed once only. Nickname is your primary name shown to other WeChat users, and it can be changed as often as you like. However, we recommend that you use your full name for the Nickname :)
