Get Kikking' with Kik messenger for Pc


If you're looking for another way to connect with your family and friends on social media without necessarily using WhatsApp especially, Kik allows you to do just that. Infact, with Kik, unlike WhatsApp,  you don't need to put in your phone number which you'll agree is super private information. You only need your email to start using Kik. This is another way to say that to a degree, Kik ensures your privacy all through your use of the app.

One of the best things about Kik is that it is free to use. You don't have to pay any hidden subscription fees waiting for you. None of that. It is owned by a Medialab in California and actually makes use of your phone data connection to communicate some information with other users on the platform.

Kik can be downloaded and used by Windows, iOS and Android users and so there's no bother about its compatibility on devices of these operating systems.

This privacy is ensured with the requirements of just your username and email when registering an account on Kik. With that alone, you can do all you want to do on Kik and still be unrecognisable unless the username gives you away.

Why use Kik vs Whatsapp/Telegram/Signal?

I think the most important thing that differentiates Kik from WhatsApp and other similar social media apps is that it seems to be specifically for teens. More than any other demographic,  teenagers made up to 40% of the 300 million registered Kik users in the United States in 2016. You may be wondering why. It's because of their focus on anonymity and privacy of the users on Kik.

Anonymity is also another great reason to use Kik. If being online is a scary activity for you and you wish to maintain your anonymity while also mixing up and making new friends, it is a great idea to get Kik. With it, your privacy is paramount and you can always create a new or multiple accounts with other emails. 

Advantages of using Kik:

  • It's easy to communicate with Kik
  • It's an app that can be used on different devices and platforms. 
  • It's a free app. No hidden fees
  • It has a large community of users, up to 4 million people 
  • It's easy to block unwanted attention with their blocking tools. 
  • Privacy and anonymity are ensured


  • Teens may be exposed to inappropriate content. 
  • Children below the required age may be using the app with no one's permission and this should be checked

  • Good but with one problem

    By gacha_girl_jenelle (Pcmac user)

    At first when I got the app for the first time, everything was okay. Chats were working, no crashes, and I even joined one group that shared the same interest as me. People were really nice I guess-one person welcomed me, others just ignored me minding their own business and that was fine by me. I even started opening up and talking to some members and it actually wasn't awful, but I did leave because one people weren't really talking much though there were like more than 40 people that joined and two there was lots of cursing. After that, I decided to not join any groups for a while. But a few days ago, I was like"Hey, why not join another group like the one I joined?" So I searched up groups with that one same interest as the first group and found many. Some were full but I eventually found some that still had some space left. But here's the thing: when I tried to join it, it just kept saying that there was a problem and to try again. I thought that it just happened to this group for some reason but it didn't. The message still kept popping up to other groups. And that is also why I've given this 4 stars. I really hope I can get told why this happens and if it's just a glitch, please fix it for I would really like to join another group and talk to others again.
  • Love it (but I don’t like the new updates)

    By Haley Jacoby (Pcmac user)

    Ok so I’ve had the app since 2 years back, it was awesome and worked amazing at that time. So I got a new phone and forgot about it and probably half a year later I got it again, it was great when I opened the app. It worked perfectly and I didn’t have any problems. So as time gone by I noticed a few bugs, example: I own a group so I’m the owner, sometimes when I open the app and a bot joins I try to remove it but it doesn’t give me the option so when I view the members, there’s two of me. The one that’s owner and the one that’s a member. So I ask the members if they see two of me in the members and they say no. I tried closing the app and reopening it but it never works so I just wait it out and let my admins do it for me. The update that I hated is when someone leaves a group chat, you can’t private message them. That update annoyed me a lot because I made some friends in some chats but they left but I can never get in touch with them unless I had them in my contacts which I do not. I’m only see that the bugs happen in the group chats. Also, the ads update, or what I think is a update is really annoying also because it really messed up al the chats I was in. I really hope they fix them because I love this app!
  • Its ok but...

    By LavenderSTITCH626 (Pcmac user)

    I like this app I’ve been a member for going on five years so I’ve definitely seen changes with the original developers compared to the current version. I understand the need for ads in order to pay for the app as it’s free however your website claimed they wouldn’t be intrusive i beg to differ as they appear inside of chats as ad banners this isn’t a good way to add apps into an app and it makes me want to uninstall it, however as i have friends on here I won’t. Instead I’m offering a different type of way to have ads a way that the app used to do ads. There used to be the app points which allowed you to get different emojis, and stickers. You earned these through both games and video ads which the user chose to watch or see. What if you did a system like this again? And have emojis, stickers, and custom themes we could get with points. It would be a great non intrusive way to include ads to keep the app running and add some more fun back into the app! Hope this review helps!
  • App is falling apart

    By drake daggersblood (Pcmac user)

    The app used to be very versatile and active but with the shutting down rumor many groups have members that no longer use the app even owners. Is there a plan for an an update to make it so users can take a group back if the owner is no longer around? Like after a certain time period the most active member in the group is promoted to owner if the owner has been gone and no admins are available to inherit the ownership. Also with the ban cap. Many people tire of having to manually remove bans so that they can ban toxic members. Could we get an update where when a new member is banned after the cap. The longest ban would be lifted as the banned member most likely won’t be back after that time. We also would like a feature to hand over ownership without having to leave a group. Some people just want to pass on that torch and be another member for a while. Oh. And groups would automatically be deleted if all members exceed 3 months of inactivity? One last one. I highly recommend that the role play bot come back with a block feature that’s accessible. Even if the bot was misused. It was an excellent opportunity for role players to share their ideas and connect with people that had the same style. I loved the format personally of the old bot. Even just bringing that back would make my day.
