Just deactivating your Kik account

Kik Messenger is one of the many popular alternatives to WhatsApp. It’s a messenger service that can be registered for using only a username and password; it does not require a private phone number. This makes this device-independent messenger particularly practical. Those who no longer have need the messenger can delete or deactivate their Kik account.

Kik accounts that have only been deactivated can easily be reactivated by logging in again. A deleted account, however, will be removed permanently. Both deactivation and deletion can only be done in a browser, and not in the Kik app.

How to open the Kik app deactivation link in your browser

Step 1: Open the Kik app and click the gear icon.

Step 2: Tap “Help”.

Step 3: A link to Kik customer service will then open in your browser. Tap “Managing Your Account”.

Step 4: On the next page, scroll all the way down and tap “Deactivate your account”.

Step 5: Then you can choose whether you only want to deactivate the account or if you want to delete it permanently.

Disable Kik account in a browser

Step 1: Go to the Kik website ws.kik.com/deactivate. It is specifically for deactivating Kik accounts.

Step 2: Enter your registered email address and click “Go!”.

Step 3: You will now receive an email with a deactivation link. Click the link provided in the email to deactivate the account.

Deleting your Kik account

Step 1: Pull up the Kik website ws.kik.com/delete to delete the account.

Step 2: Now enter your registered username and email address. You can also choose to enter a reason if you want, and then check the box to give your consent.

Step 3: Click the “Go!” button to delete the Kik account.

Uninstalling Kik Messenger app

Do not forget to remove the Kik Messenger app from your device as well after you delete your account. In any case, you need to delete your Kik account first, as it is device-independent, and it is not enough to just uninstall the app.

Step 1: On Android, go to “Settings” and then to “Apps & Notifications”.

Step 2: Select the Kik Messenger app and tap “Uninstall”.
