shared link is now blocked inside wechat browser

Recommended Posts

I used to share an everote note with one shared link, a friend on Wechat can open this link simply by clicking it.

the link starts with "https://www.evernote.com/shard/..." is now blocked inside Wechat, now a friend need to copy it and paste it to another browser (e.g, Chrome) to see it, not convenient any more.

the evernote company need to apply for the re-access, because it is not about one note getting blocked, it is about all the links starting with "https://www.evernote.com/shard/.."

Perhaps you could address this with the WeChat administrators

I'll try that too; however, I believe it is not about the context within my shared notes, as I said, it is about all the links starting with "https://www.evernote.com/shard/.."

Tried on WeChat Admin to recover my shared link above, failed; but the feedback makes the issue clear; WeChat Admin says "网页包含低俗、暴力内容", which means, "Web pages contain vulgar, violent content";

I'm pretty sure my link is fine, so I tried again the domain name, www.evernote.com

Turns out, it also get blocked, and I was informed that, someone else shared some restricted information with this following shared link,

<link removed by admin>

Now it is clear, this link (owned by some unknown Evernote User), does contain vulgar content.

Then, WeChat Admin blocked all hyperlinks starting with www.evernote.com

 

Finally, only Evernote can solve this out. Evernote need to work with its user who own this note, and also work out with Wechat Admin.

I'm sure Evernote management are not happy their name is associated with offensive/pornographic material, 
but I'm not sure it's Evernote's business to monitor or censor content stored in our personal data.

I flagged your post for the administrators to review.  There may be a violation of the ToS or User Guidelines they can follow up on

Sounds like Wechat black listed Evernote.com.  Probably up to them to white list again.

Hi All,

Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

I'm currently doing some further investigation on my end to get a better idea of exactly what's going on, and how best for us to proceed.

@Shipping I went ahead and modified your comment that contained a link to the NSFW content. As you were simply trying to provide an example of the content, I do not consider it a violation of the code of conduct. Thank for your help in notifying us of this issue.

I'll be following up soon once I have more information, but please let me know if you have any other questions!
