My group chat was deleted by Kik while I was asleep. I don’t understand why it was deleted. Even if someone reported it nothing bad happened in the group ever. Please give me my group back
Dumb asf fix it

It needs to be darker
Jay2DaNaay on 7/19/2018
Sup kik broskis, I’m back with another review. This time we're talking about the dark chat theme. It's cool and all, a lot easier on the eyes than the regular one, but the one thing I can't help but notice is that my heart yearns for the theme to be darker... like a lot darker... as in, adding more black. Basically what I'm asking for is that I would like the theme to reflect the darkness that can be found in discord's dark theme, as that one has a much more beneficial darkness to result in less eye strain when you're up late at night exchanging memes with your friends... in the dark. So yeah, can we turn the lights off a little bit more? Thank you and good night.
Love This

So nice this app I like this
Kik get OVER yourselves lol
superannpyed01 on 7/19/2018
Kik went down hill when whatever right winged super religious radical started policing what people say and post and do like whatever I do with someone in my age range is none of your business. Get off your high horses you’re not more holy than nobody you’re a messager app so all this restrictions and banning is senseless because people are gonna do and say whatever they want to and this server is built in America let adults be adults stop trying to be better than what you are it’s not even a payment method for this broke app.
Average with some letdowns
jZak2k10 on 7/19/2018
I’m just gonna get right down to it. I’d give this maybe 4 stars if it weren’t for a few things. First of all, I can’t believe there’s still no native iPad support. Using a dinky iPhone sized app, even with being zoomed in, on something like an iPad Pro is just stupid. Secondly, being able to sign into more than one device at a time would also be great, along with being able to send working gifs from your camera roll. I haven’t run into the kind of freezing issues a lot of other people seem to be having, but sometimes my keyboard gets a bit funky, typing random Qs as I’m trying to hit the ← to go back to the chat list. Other than that, the app’s not bad. It’s not perfect, but it’s not awful either, and there’s a reason it’s one of the more popular messaging apps out there.
Public Groups
ueatcaca on 7/19/2018
When someone is in a public group and they leave before I want to add them as a friend I can’t can you please put that feature back.

Could have gotten 5 stars
OnyxMallow on 7/18/2018
The community standards with pictures are extremely vague. You can have a completely innocent PG-13 picture and yet get a temporary ban. You can appeal it but the reply is automated so they don’t do anything about it like they say in the message of being temporarily banned. My only complaint and it’s a huge one because it violates your free expression with pictures. There have been people with pictures worse than I would get banned for and they don’t get banned. Even if you email kik directly at any time, it’s NEVER a good time and another automated email with obvious things. Unless kik does something about this, they might as well disban
Kikked out
webDawg911 on 7/18/2018
No human would respond to my appeal for being banned. My profile pic clearly showed an average pose with me clearly wearing knee length shorts. I was put on a 12 hour ban for violating kik policy which no one would respond about. Set up a second account with same profile pic and have been going five days without a hitch.
Love it
poop da scoop on 7/18/2018

BlahBlah334 on 7/18/2018
Should have a feature where you can search for users by their display names, that way there’s more ways to find someone instead of just by username and KIK code which sometimes KIK doesn’t display/show for some reason. All in all still like the app but little things like these make it frustrating to use sometimes, especially if you remember a friends display name and not their username.
Bad
Ryan8314 on 7/18/2018
Not as good as it used to be anymore, uninstalled.
nobody likes the update
wenkeemememem on 7/18/2018
let’s start with themes, the themes, while fun and cool, change for everyone in the group. that causes little arguments over which theme would look best, which gets frustrating. i'm okay with themes, but it’d be a lot better if you could change them for your screen only. now, the biggest problem, is the thing with the usernames. it’s upsetting a lot of people, many people i know have stopped using the app because of how annoying the new username update is, bots don't really work anymore as well, which could be a glitch, but it’s also really upsetting. it’d be nice to have usernames be displayed for everyone to see again, and it’d be cool if we could send direct messages to someone who leaves the group. a friend of mine was accidentally kicked from a public group i own, but since nobody knew her username, and since she didn't remember the tag, we weren't able to add her back.
Sexual harassment bots
n0934 on 7/18/2018
Fix this crap !!!! I’m tired of bots telling me cheat on my man or to improve my sex life or adds to meet up with people. The people I’m talking to on kik I already know !!! I don’t need these sexual harassment bots that are literally selling sex. What the heck !
groupchat
warwolfanime on 7/18/2018
remove the groupchat join limit its honestly the worst thing on the app its so annoying and im on this app to make friends and i cant make friends when theres a groupchat join limit pls remove it
Awful. Why can't I see people's usernames anymore?
Popee the Performer on 7/18/2018
Why can't I see people's usernames anymore unless I start a private chat with them? Actually, even then sometimes I can't see their usernames. In group chats where people are constantly changing their names and pictures it is extremely difficult to figure out who is who, without being able to go to their page and look at their actual username. Fix this. Or I might have to move to a different app because this crap is obnoxious.
The best chat
Sophyelove on 7/18/2018
I love Kik video chat
Fix please
Mikeizboss on 7/18/2018
Your new update is horrible! please go back to how it was before, cause much more of this and I’m done.
Something serious that everyone should read.
Momo Ashwallow on 7/18/2018
This is more of a report but it’s really serious so please read to the very end, I’d appreciate it a lot. There is this guy that’s blackmailing one of my friend’s friend and getting a bunch of people to ban and report her. The girl can’t do anything about the guy. If she would try to block him, he would ban her account. So if you guys don’t mind and maybe try reporting the guy a bunch of times or maybe get KIK to get rid of the guy for good, it would help out a lot. The guy’s username is “tenticlegoodness” Thank you so much for your time.
Gone downhill
animae01 on 7/17/2018
Constant lag, countless amount of bots and no resolutions from the kik team, not to mention the new update where you can’t see anything on anyones profile or message someone not apart of the group. All the Kik bots such as weather channel don’t work anymore. The list goes on.
Crashing and more
Emmy_Kitty on 7/17/2018
You can't private message someone who exits a group chat and kik is always crashing since the latest update
Could Be Better
YourNikkiname on 7/17/2018
I’ve used Kik since about a year after its release, and it’s improved greatly over the years. However, I will say that in all these years, there is STILL no way to keep conversations after logging out! It’s so upsetting to have to log out or delete the app for whatever reason and come back to blank slates. I yearn for the messages I sent to my friends all those years ago when the app first began, and even the ones I received last month! Please add that as a feature, Kik Team. Thank you for a great app, but it really could be improved!
Days of use
NonitaNat on 7/17/2018
Kik is wack now . I don’t like the (how many days on kik) thingy is on there , no one needs to know that especially weirdos
Chat
Bill32539 on 7/17/2018
I believe the app is essentially great, but lately it periodically prevents one from opening a new chat. Strange operation. I’m also disappointed in the removal of the ability to see a persons handle after they leave a group. It prevents an admin from following up to see if there is a problem, if needed. Bad change.
Es buena

An Untimely Nightmare
OmalleyDaAlleyCat on 7/17/2018
Ever since Craiglist & Backpage were forced to close their personals, KIK has been taken over by BOTS... And they are becoming harder & harder to identify. I used to host many burgeoning city wide groups and now it’s either a ghost town or people being chased away by the insane amount of BOTS creating unnecessary problems. KIK hit its stride and once was ideal for networking, now it’s quickly losing its appeal. Another negative worth noting... It’s almost impossible to actually turn off notifications. Even if you turn them off directly from settings, you still have to go through each group, etc to turn off the settings one by one. Sound tiring yet? It is.
PMs stopped working
RateU2 on 7/17/2018
Unable to PM members in my chatroom as of this morning. As Admin it's important. Find members freezing app upon login. That step should be removed
Keep Deactivating my Account....
BobooD on 7/17/2018
They keep deactivating my account this is now the 2nd time they have permanently banned my account and I just recently created it. I have asked them multiple times why my account was permanently deactivated and they couldn’t give me one reason why, you will get a reply back from a automatic bot and it will just say: “Please check out our Community Standards, where you may find the reason you were banned already posted. We will not be reinstating your account at this time. look at the community standards to see why I was banned and it doesn’t say why you were banned it just shows the possibility’s why you could have been banned but that doesn’t help because that means the kik development team is lazy NOT doing their job. That also means that anyone on here can -REPORT- you for nothing just because they don’t like you so basically how it works is you get enough reports of you and your automatically banned it doesn’t get reviewed by the kik team because sadly a bot is running everything like kik, kik itself is full of bots it’s funny because they have these sex porn bots all over kik but you don’t ever see them getting removed. I really would like to know why I was banned because I don’t go around kik harassing random people or showing nude photos of myself. I mean if anything I think the reason why I was removed was because maybe my views(opinions) on things I was only in a European group about Europe’s politics and national identity with European people and they would remove non Europeans from the group but that’s it. Oh another thing if the group gets reported I think everyone in the group get permanently banned too... I notice this could be a possibility. Because why else would I get banned I haven’t done anything I was off kik for a week and came back on logged off tried logging back in and there it was I was banned. I’m just surprised they would ban me and not ban those groups promoting inappropriate gay and irrational sex chats. It’s also hard to meet people on kik now they took away ChatNow where you could meet people the only hope you have now of meeting people is through joining groups but everytime you join a group, they like to randomly spam the ban or remove button on you and than once you get removed 2 times you have to wait 48hours to join another one. Kik is now garbage. It used to be good but not anymore. Kik is like Francistan(France), a s***hole. WeChat is way better.
Ban system makes this app horrible
Jeff Heller on 7/17/2018
I’ve been a kik user for at least 4 years, but this was the last straw. The past 3 days I’ve gotten temp banned So much for my pictures “breaking their code of conduct” even though all my background pictures and profile pictures easily fall within the PG-13 rating, not only that if you try to appeal all you get is a super vague automated email that basically says “You’ve been temporary banned for having an inappropriate picture”. That’s not helpful at all, and because of that this app has really ruined itself for me
Deletes my messages & wont allow me to talk to new people
thequeenofhis on 7/17/2018
I’ve been having issues with this app for weeks and nothing has changed. Between getting my messages deleted out of nowhere and not be allowed to talk to new people that enter my group, I’ve had just about enough. I’m not the only one having issues with this, either.
Freezing and no removing
iiHayley on 7/17/2018
If you have a group sometimes it won’t allow you to remove people. Once in a while it’ll work. It disappoints me because I love Kik but now it’s not so great anymore. I just think people shouldn’t use it if it’s still the same.
Hate group changes

Log into other devices
Jdc 12345678910 on 7/16/2018
I would love the app if I could log into my other device and everything wouldn’t be deleted. This is something y’all need to look into or fix.
PM’s have a problem
s.axton on 7/16/2018
There will be times when I am messaging people and my message won’t send completely. They will have the “S” symbol with the check mark beside it, even though just a moment ago they were sending fine. I also never have this problem on group chats. It’s only on private messages.
Update made the app terrible
Xavier_1973 on 7/16/2018
Chatbots you want to use in rooms (Blink, Who’s Lurking, etc.) no longer work. You can’t see a person’s Kik name or days they’ve been on Kik. You can’t send a PM to anyone you’re not already in a room with. The block feature only blocks you from seeing them, but they can still see you and your comments. This update really made the app completely terrible and almost unusable. So glitchy and the removal of the basic features is just dumb. Fix the mess, quickly or you’ll see a mass exodus of users.
It's fine
Monkey bananas man on 7/16/2018
It's annoying that you can only join 12 chats in 24 hours, but i understand they are trying to stop bots and stuff. it's just really hard to find an active public chat so i suggest adding a new tab where you can not only look up chats but also join the most recently active ones. Second problem right away i got sent unwanted nudes which i understand is to be expected however i think there should be an option to have the pic blurred and it only clears when you click on it or make it so that you're unable to send right away in pms.
Fix freezing and badges
Reviewerr00 on 7/16/2018
Freezes a lot. Doesn’t let you join more than 12 groups in 12 hours. Also, it would be nice to see the right number of notification badges instead of just 1.
Creepy data collection
Indigobeaver on 7/16/2018
This app is creepy! The primary purpose of Kik seems to be not to let gay people hook up, but instead to spy on us and collect our information. All of these gay hookup apps are the same: Creepy NSA surveillance tools. My advice: DO NOT OPEN AN ACCOUNT WITH KIK! You will regret it...
