This page is a step-by-step guide for the process of opening and setting up an external application in WeChat as part of the Gigya Setup process. Please note that in order to use WeChat, you must first configure application settings for the WeChat social network in the Gigya console. WeChat cannot operate in demo mode.

- In the first step of the app creation process, enter your app's name and description and upload two icons for the app (28x28 pixels and 108x108 pixels in PNG format, up to 300 KB in file size). Then click the green "Next" button.
- In the second step of the app creation process:

Phase 2: Configuring WeChat's Application Keys in Gigya's Website

Currently, Gigya only supports WeChat for Social Login. For a complete list of supported capabilities by social network, please review our Social Network Capabilities Table.
