Now that you have downloaded and installed WeChat, and you’ve learned all about how to use the app, you may be wondering how to delete your WeChat messages, especially if your chat page is overloaded with messages. In this tutorial we’ll explain how to delete messages, and how to clear your chat history.
Remember that if you delete messages, they are only deleted from your own personal device, not the devices of other users you were talking with. So always think carefully before you send!
Tap the green WeChat icon on your homepage to launch the app.
Enter your mobile phone number and password, and tap Log In, if you aren’t already signed in automatically.
Tapping either the Chats or Contacts menu, search for the conversation you’ve had that contains the message(s) you want to delete.
Scroll through the conversation and find the message you want to delete. Make sure it is visible on the screen.
Tap on the message and hold your finger down until a menu pops up on the screen. Remove your finger, and tap Delete.
Your message is now deleted! You can do this as often as you like, but you will need to do it individually! If you want to delete more messages at once, read below.
