Below are the 10 best KIK messenger secrets.
1- Create Group Chats
When using KIK, you can create group chats and connect with your friends and family at the same time. You can also send videos, images, and audio files to your contacts using group chat.
To use this feature, just follow the directions below.
1- Get access to your contacts for which you want to create a group chat.
2- Add the desired usernames and click “Start a Group”. KIK will generate a group chat window for you.
3- You can now start the group chat.
2- Protect your identity with KIK
KIK messenger is an app where your all information is safe. If you lose your device, you don’t need to worry about your personal information.
KIK uses usernames instead of phone numbers. When you register on the KIK network, you don’t need to verify your phone number or other information.
As a result, you are always anonymous on the KIK network. No one can know your identity unless you decide to reveal your personal information.
In case you have lost your phone, you can easily sign out from KIK messenger on that phone. Here is how to do it.
1- Ask a friend to give you his/her Android or iOS device.
2- Sign in to KIK messenger on that device using your username and password.
3- If that person hasn’t installed KIK on the device, take a moment to download KIK from app store or Play store depending on the device you are using.
4- As soon as you sign in to KIK from this mobile, you will be automatically signed out from the other device (lost phone). KIK network will only let you sign in from one device at a time.
Congratulations! Now you have signed out of your KIK account on your lost phone even when you don’t have access to your phone anymore.
3- Read any Message without showing any read receipt to the sender
KIK Messenger has many different features as compared to other messenger apps. One of the best features of this app is that you can read messages without generating a message ‘read receipt’.
That means you can trick someone into thinking that you haven’t read their message even when you have actually seen the message.
You can use this feature by following the below two methods.
1- If you are an iPhone user and you received a message on KIK messenger, you just need to turn your device to airplane mode. Now you can read the message without generating a ‘message read’ receipt. After reading the message, turn off the airplane mode.
2- Another way to read KIK messages on your phone without generating a read receipt is by double tapping the home screen button. Once you do that, your phone will show all the running apps.
Look at the KIK app and you will be able to read the new message without generating a ‘read receipt’.
4- Using the App on your Desktop
You can also use KIK on your desktop. This means you can finally escape from the small mobile screen and enjoy chatting with your friends on a bigger screen.
Just follow the given instructions to use this app on your desktop.
1- First, download an Android emulator on your computer.
2- Now install the emulator. This should be fairly easy as long as you know how to install a program on your computer.
5- Check to see if a person is real
Although KIK keeps users anonymous, you can still tell if someone is a real person or a bot. You won’t learn details about the other person’s identity but you will be able to classify them as ‘human’ or ‘bot’.
The trick to get this information with KIK messenger is to use the famous TinEye tool for KIK. I’ve added instructions below to help you make this possible.
1- If you suspect that a person is not real, ask for a picture. TinEye tool will need a picture to work.
2- TinEye will check that image from its database for information about the picture.
3- It will show results if there is any copy of such image in the database.
If TinEye returns any results, then you can be sure that person is a real person. If TinEye can’t find a result for the picture in its database, then you can safely tag it as a bot.
6- Send KIK messenger logo to the People
KIK messenger has another fascinating feature that can help you surprise your friends who are also on the KIK network. You can send the KIK messenger logo to anyone in your friend list.
There is a secret KIK emoji in the chat options that you can send to your contacts. Just type (KIK) in the chat and it will appear to others as KIK logo.
7- Converse With your favorite brand names
This feature of KIK messenger gives your ability to get in touch with your favorite brand names. You can find your favorite brands on KIK by searching for their name. Once you find a brand you are interested in, add it to your contacts. Now message this newly added contact for latest updates about the brand.
8- Utilize the KIK Points
KIK messenger has a currency system which is called “KIK Points”. To achieve these points, you need to take part in chats and activities, supported by KIK team. You can buy emojis and stickers using these points.
Remember, KIK is a free app. That means you can use real currency to buy the in-app currency. The only way to get KIK points is by earning them in the app.
