How to get qq email?

Answer # 1 #

Most people in North America and Europe have never heard of QQ Mail, yet it’s one of the biggest email services in the entire world, comparable to Yahoo, and its associated social network QZone is second only to Facebook in terms of the number of active registered users. How can this be?

The answer, in one word, is: China. Because so many websites that we take for granted here are blocked in China, they have no choice but to develop alternatives that are permitted by the government. QQ Mail or qqmail is the country’s most popular free email platform, and considering China’s sizeable population, that allows it to rank alongside major services like Yahoo and Gmail.

But qqmail isn’t just for people living in China – it’s become quite popular in countries like Japan and Korea, and as more and more businesses in Europe and North America begin to work with companies based in these Asian countries, it’s becoming increasingly clear that having a qqmail account makes these interactions much easier. Basically, anyone who routinely is in contact with people in China would benefit from a free qqmail account, whether it’s for school, business, or any other reason. Even if you’re just interested in meeting new people in China because you’re trying to learn Mandarin, for example, getting a qqmail email address is a great first step to being able to reach people there.

Continue by picking a nickname. It can be anything you want and it appears that it doesn’t have to be unique, since you’ll get a unique QQ ID number as your account identifier. Then, choose a password that meets the requirements stated in the little popup box, and enter it again to confirm it.

The QQ?? sign up page will let you know how strong or weak your password is, but it will allow you to continue with a weak one (although this isn’t really recommended). Now, continue filling in the fields with your information, selecting your gender, birth date, and location. Finally, type the verification code in the box at the bottom to prove you aren’t a robot, make sure the box is checked indicating you’ve read the fine print, and click “Sign up now”.

Now QQ Mail is going to send you a text message to your mobile phone for additional verification.

IMPORTANT! If you just go typing your phone number in right now, it won’t work because it’s set to accept only numbers from mainland China. If your phone number isn’t Chinese, as it most likely isn’t, click on the link that says “select your country/region”, and then pick your country with the appropriate code from the list.

After that, you can enter your mobile phone number and you should get a free SMS text message within a matter of seconds that contains a 6-8 digit code. Type that code into the box, and submit it. If it is the right code, you should be taken to a page telling you that QQ Mail sent an activation email to the address you used to sign up.

Note: The first time I entered my verification code, I got an error saying I had tried to sign up too many times and I was blocked for 24 hours. I have no idea how this happened except that maybe something weird happened with my connection and it tried to send the page twice. Anyway, it worked today, so if this happens to you, don’t panic. Just try again the next day.

Next, you need to check your email for the activation link. I used Gmail to sign up for qqmail and it was sent to my “Updates” tab, but your mileage may vary. Click the big ol’ link in the body of the email.

Tadaa! Your QQ Mail is all set up and you can log in by pressing the big green button. You can also set your security questions from this page, which is always a good idea.

And here’s something neat. Instead of scribbling your new QQ number down on a post-it note that is going to fall off your screen and be lost forever, click on the tiny button that looks like a notepad next to the ID number. This will download a text file that you can open in Notepad.

Depending on your browser, the computer may try to open it as an html file. That’s ok - if you get a popup that lets you select another program to open the file with, pick Notepad (for PC) or whatever program you usually use for .txt files. If you can’t, go into your browser’s downloads, right click the QQ number download and select “go to containing folder”. Then, from that folder, you should have the option to right click and “open with…” Notepad. You’ll get a cute little text file that says “Your QQ number is: **********”, which you can save to your desktop so that it’s always easy to find.

And that’s it! QQ Mail has a fairly simple interface, so you can go ahead and log in using the email/password combo you provided at sign up, or using your new QQ Number and the same password. Click around and explore, but don’t be terribly surprised if you run into some Chinese characters along the way.

To learn how to sign in and out of your new qqmail account, check out our post: How to open and close a session in QQ Mail.

First, you’ll need to go to the login page for QQ Mail. Remember that this is a Chinese email service, so you’re going to want the English version of the sign in page. To get there, you can Google “qq mail sign in”, and your first result will be the English login page. Note the “en.” at the beginning of the URL - that stands for “English”.

This is what the sign in page for QQ?? looks like. I imagine they change the quotation periodically, so you might see something slightly different.

Here is a close-up of the URL in case you prefer to type the web address in directly, rather than going through a search engine like Google. It’s fairly simple to type in manually, and your internet browser will probably remember it the next time you want to sign in.

At this point, you’ll sign into your qqmail just like any email account. In the first field, type in your primary email address (i.e. the one you used to sign up with, like Gmail or Yahoo). If you saved or wrote down your QQ ID number after you set up your account, you can type that in instead. However, if you try to sign in the first time with your QQ Mail email address, which is your QQ ID followed by “”, it probably won’t work.

Then, type in your password and enter the captcha code if necessary.

At the bottom of the login box, there is a little checkbox that says “Remember me”. If you are using your own private computer, checking this box is convenient because it lets you stay logged in all the time until you log out manually. But if you are using a computer that other people have access to, we recommend leaving this box UNCHECKED.

Ok, here’s the weird part about your first time logging in to qqmail. It’s going to ask you to “activate” your email. Isn’t that what I did when I entered the verification code from my text message and when I clicked the confirmation code in my email upon sign up? Well, apparently not. That set up your QQ Number, but now you have to confirm that you actually want to use your email. Don’t worry, this only happens the first time you log in.

Next QQ is going to ask you to share the news with your friends about your new qqmail email. Except, you probably don’t have any QQmail friends yet. So, the only option you have here is to “skip”. Again, this is something that you only have to do the first time you sign in.

Now you finally have a verified, confirmed, activated, bona fide QQ Mail email account. There are some notes about what your new email capabilities are, like storage space and file size for attachments. When you’re ready to go to your brand new inbox, click on “Enter My Mailbox”.

Welcome to QQ Mail (but, like, for real this time). As you can see, your inbox layout is fairly simple. You have probably received a welcome message from QQ, and I sure hope there isn’t any life-or-death information in there, because it’s in Chinese. If you can read Chinese, you’re leagues ahead of me.

Now, if you are using your own personal computer and aren’t worried about random people sneaking into your QQ Mail, there’s no need to sign out. However, if you’re on a shared device, it’s always smart to sign out of qqmail before leaving the computer. You can also sign out just so that you can sign in again and see that you don’t have to go through the whole “activation” rigmarole like you did the first time. Just find the “Sign out” link in the top-right corner and click on it.

When you see this page, you know that you’ve logged out of your qqmail account.

Now, just for fun, you can go back to the sign in page by clicking “Sign in again”. And from now on, when you log into qqmail, it will be the standard “username, password, go”. You might even be spared the captcha code if you’re on a computer that QQ Mail recognizes.

Oh, and if you’re curious about those Chinese characters up at the top next to “Business mail”… it will take you to the original qqmail sign in page in Chinese. So if I had to guess, I’d say that’s Chinese for “Chinese”.

You need to store the client secret that you previously recorded in your Azure AD B2C tenant.

To enable users to sign in using a QQ account, you need to define the account as a claims provider that Azure AD B2C can communicate with through an endpoint. The endpoint provides a set of claims that are used by Azure AD B2C to verify that a specific user has authenticated.

You can define a QQ account as a claims provider by adding it to the ClaimsProviders element in the extension file of your policy.

At this point, the identity provider has been set up, but it's not yet available in any of the sign-in pages. If you don't have your own custom user journey, create a duplicate of an existing template user journey, otherwise continue to the next step.

Now that you have a user journey, add the new identity provider to the user journey. You first add a sign-in button, then link the button to an action. The action is the technical profile you created earlier.

The following XML demonstrates the first two orchestration steps of a user journey with the identity provider:

The relying party policy, for example SignUpSignIn.xml, specifies the user journey which Azure AD B2C will execute. Find the DefaultUserJourney element within relying party. Update the ReferenceId to match the user journey ID, in which you added the identity provider.

In the following example, for the CustomSignUpSignIn user journey, the ReferenceId is set to CustomSignUpSignIn:

Tencent QQ (Chinese: 腾讯QQ), also known as QQ, is an instant messaging software service and web portal developed by the Chinese technology company Tencent. QQ offers services that provide online social games, music, shopping, microblogging, movies, and group and voice chat software. As of March 2022, there were 563.8 million monthly active QQ accounts.[6]

Tencent QQ was first released in China in February 1999 under the name of OICQ ("Open ICQ", a reference to the early IM service ICQ).[7][8][9][10]

After the threat of a trademark infringement lawsuit by the AOL-owned ICQ, the product's name was changed to QQ[8][9][10] (with "Q" and "QQ" used to imply "cute").[7][10] The software inherited existing functions from ICQ, and additional features such as software skins, people's images, and emoticons.[citation needed] QQ was first released as a "network paging" real-time communications service. Other features were later added, such as chatrooms, games, personal avatars (similar to "Meego" in MSN), online storage, and Internet dating services.

The official client runs on Microsoft Windows and a beta public version was launched for Mac OS X version 10.4.9 or newer.[11] Formerly, two web versions, WebQQ (full version) and WebQQ Mini (Lite version), which made use of Ajax, were available.[12][13] Development, support, and availability of WebQQ Mini, however, has since been discontinued. On 31 July 2008, Tencent released an official client for Linux,[14] but this has not been made compatible with the Windows version and it is not capable of voice chat.

In response to competition with other instant messengers, such as Windows Live Messenger, Tencent released Tencent Messenger, which is aimed at businesses.

Tencent QQ holds the Guinness World Record for the highest number of simultaneous online users on an instant messaging program with 210,212,085 users online on July 3, 2014.[15]

In 2002, Tencent stopped its free membership registration, requiring all new members to pay a fee. In 2003, however, this decision was reversed due to pressure from other instant messaging services such as Windows Live Messenger and Sina UC. Tencent currently offers a premium membership scheme, where premium members enjoy features such as QQ mobile, ringtone downloads, and SMS sending/receiving. In addition, Tencent offers "Diamond" level memberships. Currently, there are seven diamond schemes available:

The QQ Coin is a virtual currency used by QQ users to "purchase" QQ related items for their avatar and blog. QQ Coins are obtained either by purchase (one coin for one RMB) or by using the mobile phone service. Due to the popularity of QQ among young people in China, QQ Coins are accepted by online vendors in exchange for "real" merchandise such as small gifts.[16] This has raised concerns of replacing (and thus "inflating") real currency in these transactions.

The People's Bank of China, China's central bank, tried to crack down on QQ Coins due to people using QQ Coins in exchange for real world goods.[17][18] However, this only caused the value of QQ coins to rise as more and more third-party vendors started to accept them.[19] Tencent claims the QQ Coin is a mere regular commodity, and is, therefore, not a currency.[20]

Qzone is a social networking website based in China which was created by Tencent in 2005.[21] Q Zone is a personal blog for QQ users. It can be set as a public page or a private friend-only page. Users can upload diaries and share photos.

In 2009, QQ began to expand its services internationally with its QQ International client for Windows distributed through a dedicated English-language portal.[22]

QQ International offers non-Mandarin speakers the opportunity to use most of the features of its Chinese counterpart to get in touch with other QQ users via chat, VoIP, and video calls, and it provides a non-Mandarin interface to access Qzone, Tencent's social network. The client supports English, French, Spanish, German, Korean, Japanese and Traditional Chinese.

One of the main features of QQ International is the optional and automatic machine translation in all chats.

An Android version of QQ International was released in September 2013.[23] The client's interface is in English, French, Spanish, German, Korean, Japanese and Traditional Chinese. In addition to text messaging, users can send each other images, videos, and audio media messages. Moreover, users can share multimedia content with all contacts through the client's Qzone interface.

The live translation feature is available for all incoming messages and supports up to 18 languages.

QQ International for iPhone and iOS devices was released at the end of 2013,[24] fully equivalent to its Android counterpart.

In India, Tencent has partnered with ibibo[25] to bring services such as chat, mail and game to the developing Indian internet sphere.

In Vietnam, Tencent has struck a deal with VinaGame[26] to bring the QQ Casual Gaming portal as well as the QQ Messenger as an addition to the already thriving Vietnamese gaming communities.

In the United States, Tencent has partnered with AOL to bring QQ Games as a contender in the US social gaming market. Launched in 2007,[27] QQ Games came bundled with the AIM installer, and competed with AOL's own to provide a gaming experience for the AIM user base.

Tencent launched its web-based QQ formally on 15 September 2009, the latest version of which being 3.0. Rather than solely a web-based IM, WebQQ 3.0 functions more like its own operating system, with a desktop in which web applications can be added.

In 2009, Tencent launched Xiaoyou (校友, 'schoolmate'), its first social network website. In mid-2010, Tencent changed direction and replaced Xiaoyou with Pengyou (朋友, 'friends'), trying to establish a more widespread network, to which extant QQ users could be easily redirected, hence giving Pengyou a major advantage over its competitors.[28] Tencent's social network Qzone is linked to in the International and native versions of QQ.

Using reverse engineering, open source communities have come to understand the QQ protocol better and have attempted to implement client core libraries compatible with more user-friendly clients, free of advertisements. Most of these clients are cross-platform, so they are usable on operating systems which the official client does not support. However, these implementations had only a subset of functions of the official client and therefore were limited in features. Furthermore, QQ's parent company, Tencent, has over successive versions modified the QQ protocol to the extent that it can no longer be supported by most, and perhaps any, of the third-party implementations that were successful in the past (some of which are listed below). As of 2009, none of the developers of third-party clients have publicized any plans to restore QQ support.

Tencent has taken advantage of the popularity of the QQ brand and has set up many Q-Gen stores selling QQ branded merchandise such as bags, watches, clothing as well as toy penguins.

Coral QQ, a modification of Tencent QQ, is another add-on for the software, providing free access to some of the services and blocking Tencent's advertisements. In 2006, Tencent filed a copyright lawsuit against Chen Shoufu (aka Soft), the author of Coral QQ, after his distribution of a modified Tencent QQ was ruled illegal. Chen then published his modification as a separate add-on. On 16 August 2007, Chen was detained again for allegedly making profits off of his ad-blocking add-on.[31] The case resulted in a three-year prison sentence for Shoufu.[32]

In 2010, Chinese anti-virus company, Qihoo 360, analyzed the QQ protocol and accused QQ of automatically scanning users' computers and uploading their personal information to QQ's servers without the users' consent. In response, Tencent called 360 a malware and denied users of installing 360 access to some of the QQ's services. The Chinese Ministry of Industry and Information reprimanded both companies for "improper competition" and ordered them to come to an agreement.[33]

Some observers have criticized QQ's compliance in the Chinese government's Internet surveillance and censorship.[34] A 2013 report by Reporters Without Borders specifically mentioned QQ as allowing authorities to monitor online conversations for keywords or phrases and track participants by their user number.[35]

The Chinese version of QQ makes use of embedded advertisements. Older versions of the client have been branded as malicious adware by some antivirus and anti-spyware vendors.[36][37][38]

Both the Chinese and International versions of QQ had been tested in 2013.[39] Currently it is identified as malware by DrWeb, Zillya, NANO-Antivirus, and VBA32 give positive results, most of which identify it as a trojan.[40]

On March 6, 2015, QQ scored 2 out of 7 points on the Electronic Frontier Foundation's secure messaging scorecard. It received points for having communications encrypted in transit and for having a recent independent security audit. It lost points because communications are not end-to-end encrypted, users can't verify contacts' identities, past messages are not secure if the encryption keys are stolen (i.e. the service does not provide forward secrecy), the code is not open to independent review (i.e. the code is not open-source), and the security design is not properly documented.[41]

Having a QQ account could be your secret weapon.

QQ is one of the biggest social media sites in the world, attracting over 840 million users and appealing to a young (and lucrative) user base.

Yet, many businesses in the West are lagging behind when it comes to building a presence on this potentially game-changing Chinese platform.

But how exactly can you create/register QQ account in English from outside China?

Let’s break it down. There are two ways you can register a QQ account in English. First, let’s take a look at how to do it via the app.

For QQ sign up process via the app, you’ll need to carry out the following steps:

This part is simple. Open up the app store on your mobile device, search for “QQ” and click download.

When you open the QQ app, you’ll notice that it’s in Chinese and can’t be translated to English. Don’t let that put you off — QQ is still a really valuable platform. You’ll just have to navigate the language barrier, which is where we can help.

The first thing you need to do is accept the service agreement by clicking on the option in the right-hand corner of the pop-up window, pictured below:

Click on the “Register” option on the home screen. It’s the option to the left in the white square!

At this stage, you’ll need to confirm your mobile phone number so that QQ can verify your account.

Enter it into the field below, choose your country code from the drop-down menu, tick the confirmation box, and click “OK”.

Top tip: if you’re finding it difficult to choose your country code because of the Chinese interface, head over to Google translate and translate your country’s name into simplified Chinese. Copy the translation, and then paste it into the country code search bar. You’ll then be left with the relevant country code to select.

Simply slide the puzzle piece into place using your touchscreen.

In the pop-up window, click the option in the blue box to confirm your mobile phone number.

Once you’ve confirmed your mobile phone number, you’ll then be sent a text containing a one-time passcode. Enter this in the field below:

Finally, create your username and password by typing them into the fields below. The username goes first, then the password in the space underneath.

Then, click “Register” (the outlined box) and your QQ account will be ready to use.

If you’d rather sign up for QQ using your computer, that’s fine, too. In fact, it’s much easier, as the desktop interface is available in English. Hooray!

Here’s what you need to do:

Click here, and you’ll be taken to where you can sign up for QQ in English.

Simply fill in the below fields and confirm the following:

After filling in the above details, click “Sign up now”. Make sure you’ve accepted the terms and conditions, too, just below it.

Just as is the case with signing up for QQ on your mobile device, you’ll have to complete a few verification steps. These include:

Once that’s done, your QQ account will be registered and ready to use on both the mobile and desktop versions of QQ.

Remember, though, only the desktop version of QQ is available in English — the app isn’t. That’s why we recommend using Chinese QQ on your computer whenever possible.

Even though the standard QQ app can’t be used in English, that doesn’t mean you’ll have to go down the app-free route altogether.

QQ International — as the name suggests — is the global version of QQ. It’s available in both app and desktop form. The core difference between QQ and QQ International version is that the latter is available in more languages and is specifically designed for foreign users.

Because of that, QQ International is great for global businesses, as it’s easy to use and doesn’t have the steep language barrier the Chinese app has.

Follow these simple steps and you’ll be up-and-running in no time.

First, click here on your mobile device.

Change the language settings to English by clicking in the top right corner, pictured above.

Once you’ve translated the website to English, you’ll see the following download button:

Click on it.

You can choose from an iOS or Android version. (Google Play Store for Android and Apple App Store for iOS devices)

You can also scan the QR Code to automatically start the download process.

You’ll have to complete the same security steps covered above, including slotting the puzzle piece into place and verifying your mobile phone number.

The great thing about QQ International verson is that you can log into it using your standard QQ credentials. So, if you’ve already created a QQ account (by following the steps above) you’ll be able to automatically log into QQ International without having to do anything else.

If you haven’t yet created a QQ account, you’ll have to create a username and password from scratch. You’ll then be able to use this across every version of QQ.


In addition to the standard QQ (and QQ International) account, you can also upgrade to a VIP account. Doing so will unlock a wide range of features and benefits, including no ads and access to exclusive VIP rewards for high usage.

VIP membership costs 120 RMB a year, or around USD $19.00.

To upgrade to a VIP account, click here on your mobile device and select “Open Super Member”.

You’ll then be prompted to scan a QR code that’ll open up the VIP upgrade window in your QQ app:

From there, follow the in-app instructions and you’ll be able to upgrade your account in a few seconds, so long as you have a Chinese debit card and bank account. If you don’t, you unfortunately won’t be eligible for VIP status.

Don’t worry, though — VIP membership isn’t essential, and it won’t have any impact on your QQ marketing strategy. It’s primarily for personal users, not businesses.
