How to Block Contacts on QQ International for Mobile?

Is there someone you don’t want to talk to? Do you want to hide your presence from a contact? Don’t worry: with QQ International you have full control over your privacy and visibility.

Tap on the “Contacts” tab in the bottom navigation bar, then select the contact you want to block. Tap on the top-right corner pop-up the following menu and select “Visibility and Permissions”:

From the menu below you can choose to block the user (the contact won’t be able to see you online or contact you when sending a message), or ignore the selected users’ updates on Qzone (you won’t see any new post by the selected contact).






How to Avoid Being Added by People You Don’t Know?

The best way to safeguard your privacy is to manage your visibility to other contacts who want to add you. To change these settings you need to be on QQ International for Windows – we’re sorry but QQ International for smartphone currently doesn’t support this feature.

First off, you need to bring up the main panel and then click on the “Settings” icon:

Now choose “Privacy” from the tabbed navigation at the top of the window – the first element in the left hand side list is “Visibility” and that’s exactly what you need to tweak. You can choose exactly how others can find your contact and how to manage new friendship requests.

We recommend you to make sure that new requests need your manual approval. In this way you’ll receive a notification each time someone wants to become your friend, and you’ll have a chance to scrutinize their profile before agreeing and reciprocating their invitation.

In alternative you can setup a security question that will be asked to anyone trying to add you as a contact. Only persons who can provide you with a satisfying answer will be allowed to add you as their friends. This setting is great for those of you who are very privacy-conscious.


How to Export Contact Information to File

Unfortunately QQ International doesn’t offer this feature and it’s because of security reasons. However we suggest that you manually save your QQ International contact information regularly in case you forget your password or don’t have an Internet connection.

Go to Contact Manager by right clicking anywhere on your contact list to bring up the Contact Menu.

You can then take a screenshot of the Contact Manager window to have a copy of all your contacts QQ numbers. If you ever lose access to your account, you can still add them back in a new account. Don’t forget to scroll down the entire list and take screenshot of each page.
