WeChat recommends using mobile phone number registration and supports mobile phone numbers in more than 100 countries. WeChat cannot be registered directly through the QQ number or email account. The first time you use the QQ account to log in, you can't log in. You can only use the mobile phone to register and bind the QQ account to log in. WeChat will ask to set the WeChat name and nickname. The WeChat name is the unique identification number of the user in WeChat, and must be longer than or equal to 6 digits. After the registration is successful, it is allowed to be modified only once. A nickname is an alias for WeChat that allows multiple changes.
