Kik is a fabulous interface that is easy to use and sign in. With this messenger you can send both voice and text messages not to mention pictures, drawings and recordings. This messenger can be downloaded on your PC and phone very fast and does not require your phone number to do it. However, kik occupies a lot of space on the phone. If you need more space on the device for more apps or kik is just boring you, deleting kik is just as easy.
Here is how you can do it on;
- Go to ws.kik.com/deactivate Enter your email address as required in the field and press the big green button that says ’GO’.
- Go to your email account and open the email you will get from kik
- Do as the email says and you are officially deactivated.
- Open the kik app on your phone
- Go to settings and select ‘account’
- Go to ‘ reset kik messenger’
This process will only delete kik history and messages so you can proceed to deleting the account. This step is important because failure to do this will leave your publicly visible messages still visible. After this visit ws.kik.com/deactivate on your search field
- Enter your email address as asked
- Go to your email account
- Click the link that says ‘want to deactivate your account?’
Things to Note
It is vital that you know a kik account cannot be permanently deleted. In future when you rethink your decision and decide to go back to kik you can just sign in but with a different username and email address. If you want to use the same email address you use now in future you have to change it in the kik settings before you deactivate your account. This will enable you to sign in with your current username and email address without restrictions. However it deletes the account from your PC and phone so you have space.
If you cannot find a deactivation email on your primary mails, go to junk mail or spam. It might take some time to appear but it will.Your kik name will no longer appear in the contact list of your kik friends and all your conversations will be lost.
If you forgot the email address you used to sign in to kik, just go to settings and change the email address to something else before you deactivate. Ensure the email address you use to deactivate is not important to you.
How to delete KIK App from the Phone
Unfortunately, while deactivating your kik account will make it go away, the kik cache on your phone will still occupy some space. The only way to delete kik and free up the space is by downloading some android cleaners. Ccleaner is one of the android cleaners that will clear up all the unused junk on your phone and create some space on the phone. Until an easier way is discovered, this is the only way to delete kik account from your device. There is no way one can do it through the app directly.
