What is Kik?
Kik is a messaging app that only works on phones. It lets you chat with others using either Kik Messenger or SMS on your phone. It’s free, but some elements of the app are only available to people over the age of 18.
Kik is very popular with teenagers, who use it to chat with friends both locally and around the world. It’s even more popular than Snapchat!
However, it’s also the most dangerous social media app for kids because of sexting and bullying. If you are concerned about your child using this app, I have some helpful tips on how to delete their account so they can’t be contacted by other users anymore.
Why You Might Want to Delete Your Account?
The biggest reason people give for deleting their Kik account is that it’s a waste of time. Maybe you find yourself scrolling through the app looking at other people’s stories, or getting notifications from bots, when you should be doing something else.
Or maybe you only use the app to chat with a few friends and family members but feel like it takes up too much of your attention.
In addition to being a time waster, Kik can also be risky in some ways. The service doesn’t have strong controls over offensive content, so if an improper conversation or image pops up in one of your chats, there’s little chance people will report it.
Plus, even though Kik Messenger is known for being safe, some of its features are only available to people over the age of 18.
In recent months, it has come under scrutiny because of the risk of being monitored by authorities and the potential of having your messages hacked. If you have been using this app lately, you may want to consider deleting your account from Kik Messenger.
To see how vulnerable Kik can be you should read my article on how to spy on someone’s Kik messages. It will give you an idea of how easy this is.
This blog post will give you step-by-step instructions on how to delete a Kik account so that there are no traces left behind on your phone or laptop!
How to Delete a Kik Account
The first step if you want to delete your account is to go to “settings.” There, you’ll see a link that says “account deletion” a message that says, “Don’t worry, we won’t send you any more messages” and a warning that states once your account is deleted, it cannot be recovered.
Note: Before deleting your Kik account, make sure there are no friends or family members you want to keep in contact with. Once the process has been completed, nothing will be left of the app on your phone.
You can also delete your account by going to the profile settings page on Kik. Open the main menu and click on “settings” then tap on “profile“. Underneath your username, you’ll see a button that says “delete account“.
Tap on it, then confirm that you want to delete your Kik account by tapping “yes” on the pop-up box. If you have messages, photos, or other data saved in Kik, this will be deleted along with your account. Data saved within the app itself will remain.
Once you delete your account, there will be nothing left of the app on your phone. If you use Snapchat, WhatsApp, or Facebook Messenger for Kik, these accounts will remain active after deleting Kik.
If your account is successfully deleted, you’ll get a message that says “your account has been deleted” and you’ll no longer be able to open the Kik app. If your account is not successfully deleted, it will say “your account was not deleted” and you might get a message that says something like, “please try again later“.
If this happens, try deleting your Kik Messenger app from the phone’s settings page. This will delete the app and your account, but it won’t remove your profile information or any messages you’ve already sent.
What Happens After You’ve Deleted Your Kik Account?
You may still want to keep your account open if you find yourself missing it. You can always sign back in and chat with your friends whenever you like, and logging back in is easy: just use the same email address and password that you used when you created the account.
If someone appears on your chat list that you would rather not have contact with anymore, they can also easily be blocked from contacting you by clicking the Block button on their profile page.
It’s always possible to delete an account entirely if you’re certain that’s what you want just go to https://kik.com/settings/account and tap “Delete your account“.
The #1 Mistake When Deleting Kik
One of the mistakes that people make when deleting their Kik account with your email and password is not logging out of their account. Some people wait until the last minute to log out and they close their laptop, forgetting to log out.
If you don’t log out before you delete your account, whenever you open Kik again, it will be as if you never deleted your account at all.
Tips for Staying Safe While Using Kik
There are several tips for staying safe when using Kik. One of the best tips is to keep your account private. This means that only people that you approve can see your profile or chat with you.
The reason that this is important is that it will protect you from people who might want to hurt or harass you online.
Another good tip for staying safe while using Kik would be to avoid giving out personal information like your phone number, address, or school name. Scammers can use your phone number and target you in Vishing scams – find out more in that article.
This information can be used to find out more about you which could lead to harassment. Instead, you should only give out your username. Kik can be safe if you are smart about who you talk to.
If you’ve been wondering how to delete a Kik account, it’s easier than ever with this process. You can log in and follow the prompts to complete the deletion of your profile and data saved within the app itself will remain.
This is useful if you’re planning on using another messaging service or just want peace of mind that nothing from Kik will appear when someone searches for you online or tries to contact you via email or phone number.
If all else fails, we recommend deleting your Kik Messenger app through settings before doing anything else so there are no surprises! To stay safe while using Kik, remember not to give out any personal information like your phone number, address, or school name (unless they’re already friends) and always keep an eye on the things you say.
Other helpful tips include keeping your account on private at all times and avoiding giving out passwords or allowing others to access your account (for example, letting strangers use your device while you’re away). That way, Kik can be safe for everyone!
