Hi @ThomasX 

In file blocking profiles not every application can be used. For this - depending on the way files are transfered - it is not possible to detect the transfered files and because of that wechat is not listed in file blocking profiles.

But to block filetransfer of wechat, you can simply create a security policy where the application wechat-file-transfer is blocked.

Thank @vsys_remo ... but, our customer only want to block file types (maybe be, file as .exel; .doc; ...) over this app, not block app
