摘要: WeChat changes launch image photo by China\x26#39;s newest satellite, and It\x26#39;s Now Official: WeChat Really Is Watching You...

01

WeChat changes launch image photo by Chinas newest satellite

For celebrating the huge breakthrough of the newest meteorological satellites, WeChat, Chinas most popular instant messaging application, replaced its composite logon picture on Monday. It will use an image recently taken by the Fengyun 4A satellite until Thursday.


WeChat users had been greeted by a silhouette figure staring off at the Earth whenever using the app. The original image of the planet was the iconic “Blue Marble”, taken by Apollo 17 spacecraft on December 7, 1972, at a distance of about 29,000 kilometers from the surface, which was regarded as the first picture of the Earth.


Since the “Fengyun-4A”, Chinas newest meteorological satellite, began operating on September 25, the background of WeChats starting image has been changed into a new cloud imaginary taken by the Chinese satellite.


The new-generation satellite is equipped with the worlds first vertical atmospheric detector, and was the world’s first time applied multi-channel scanning radiometer as well as vertical atmospheric sounding and microwave detector, which enabled to address 3D remote sensing at geostationary altitudes.


While the Blue Marble image prominently features the continent of Africa, the new photo presents the universe perspective of Asia and the rest of the Eastern Hemisphere.


According to WeChat, the change is based on the belief, “Africa is the birthplace of mankind and an appropriate image for an app that was just starting out. The existence and meaning of communication [are] because of the appearance of mankind. But now the using of [a] picture taken by the FY-4 illustrated the willing of drawing the attention of millions of users to the wonders of Chinese civilization as well as its landscape.”

Such a change will remain until 5 p.m. on Thursday.

Its Now Official: WeChat Really is Watching You


To some extent, WeChat users were already aware of the possibility of the Chinese government reading their private information and messages, but it was still striking when this fact officially hit us last Friday with the Tencent-owned messaging app detailing all the user information it collects as well as its readiness to share this data with the government.


WeChat’s latest update greeted users with new terms of use and a new privacy policy, to which users must agree if they want to use the app. WeChat acknowledges that it collects a wide range of personal information such as names, phone numbers, email addresses, credit card info, and ID info, as well as the data users make available to the platform like location, chat logs, and more. WeChat will probably know you better than you even know yourself, given that it stores every detail from your bank account info and your closest connections to where you have recently traveled.



Users were greeted with a new terms of use and privacy policy on WeChat

The company also demonstrated their willingness to share this with the government to comply with “applicable laws or regulations.” According to the new policy, WeChat can disclose users’ personal information:

  • In order to comply with applicable laws or regulations;

  • In order to comply with a court order, subpoena or other legal processes;

  • In response to a request by a government authority, law enforcement agency or similar body (whether situated in your jurisdiction or elsewhere);

  • When (they) believe it is reasonably necessary to comply with applicable laws or regulations;

The new privacy policy has evoked a series of outcries from Chinese users who rushed to WeChat on various app stores with furious comments.

“It’s already hardly bearable to collect our personal information. Now WeChat is going too far, even asking for a smartphones contact list before logging into the app. Who do you think you are to ask everything about your users, the state secrecy administration?” one user commented under the pseudonym of “M梅梅”.
