When you send a message it passes through a remote server that contains rules for implementing censorship.If the message includes a keyword that has been targeted for blocking, the message will not be sent.It is estimated that Chinese users spend a third of their mobile online time on We Chat and typically return to the app ten times a day or more.We Chat is owned and operated by Tencent, one of China’s largest technology companies.
