Kik Messenger, one of the most popular messaging apps, was initially launched in 2010. It is compatible with both Android and iOS devices. Users can send one-to-one or group messages, pictures, gifs, emoticons, and videos to other users. Kik is notable for protecting its users’ privacy by allowing them to register without providing a phone number or a verified email address.
When Kik Messenger first came out, it was the only free messenger available on the Internet for individuals to communicate with their friends and family. However, because Kik has a limited number of features, applications like Facebook Messenger, WhatsApp, Telegram, and others became popular in 2015 owing to their fantastic features.
As a result, most Kik users shifted to apps like Whatsapp, Hike, and Telegram. Now, if you want to delete your Kik account, you will find it difficult because you can’t delete or deactivate your account through the mobile app. Instead, you’ll need to open your smartphone’s or PC’s web browser to continue.
In this article, we’ll show you how to delete your Kik account easily.
