At the same time, the WeChat keyboard will also better protect user privacy.
Zhang Xiaolong previously said that WeChat did not want to do input methods, but received many complaints from users that their chat records were stolen, because they would see corresponding advertisements when they typed.
It is worth recalling that many netizens wonder why this input method is called the WeChat keyboard instead of the WeChat input method directly. According to Tencent’s trademark application, it should be because the trademark for the input method has not been won.
Public information shows that Tencent’s process of applying for input methods and trademarks has been very difficult. Many applications for the trademarks of “WeChat Input Method” and “WeChat Keyboard” have been rejected.
But Tencent never gave up.A number of “WeChat keyboard” trademarks applied for in March last year have been successfully registered.
Recently, Tencent Technology (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. applied for the registration of a number of “WeChat Input Method” graphic trademarks. The international classification involves scientific instruments,educateEntertainment, communication services, etc., the current trademark status is all pending.
It seems that Tencent is still reluctant to give up the naming of the input method, and may change its name to “WeChat Input Method” after winning the relevant trademark and officially launching it.
