Yesterday, it was announced that there was a Chinese government pilot programme to replace state government issued IDs with Tencent’s WeChat ID. The popular social networking and messaging app in China have nearly 1 billion active daily users and now has been adopted by a Bijin Court as a means for people to file lawsuits electronically.

This now means that those taking part in a legal case can now submit documents, verify their ID and pay said legal fees all through Tencent’s WeChat. This was reported by the official Xinhua news agency on Monday stating the following.

“It saves time for the parties when resubmitting materials and lining up in banks to make payments. The parties will receive a notice via WeChat after the required materials are successfully filed,” Dai Guo, director of the political office of Beijing Court, was quoted by Xinhua as saying.

While the ability to send legal documents electronically is far from new. Allowing someone to do so over social media let alone text is a really interesting idea. To draw a comparison WeChat would be the equivalent of our Facebook or Twitter. Now ask yourself this would you want Donald Trump to have the ability to sue people on Twitter (this is a joke)?

The service platform uses character recognition technology for document scanning and facial recognition for ID verification, Dai said. It is also connected with information centers for China’s household registration system, which officially records all resident information including full name and date of birth.

What are your thoughts? Is this a step in the right direction or will this lead to a lot of frivolous lawsuits and ultimately become a waste of time for everyone involved? Is this something you would want to use and if not tell us your concerns in the comments section below!
