More about Kik
Kik is free to download and use, much like WhatsApp. People like Kik because it provides some level of privacy and anonymity to users, as the messages sent between users are not stored by Kik, and can only be found on the devices of the sender and receiver. Further, you can sign up to Kik with only a name and email address, which doesn’t need to be verified. Phone numbers are not required either.
Kik has come under fire in the news recently because it has unfortunately connected children and teenagers with adults who had inappropriate or even criminal intentions. There has been a lot of noise about getting parents more involved with monitoring the use of Kik by their children, and preventing children from accessing inappropriate adults through the app.
Given that anyone can access Kik without providing a real name, confirmed email address, or contact information, it seems best to keep a close eye on children or vulnerable individuals using the app.
