Frequently Asked Questions - KikFriendz

What is KikFriendz?

KikFriendz is a site built around the mobile app Kik Messenger (not affiliated). We provide a kik friends finder / kikfriender service for free. People can simply post their kik usernames on our site and others online may send them private messages via the Kik app. Simply put, it's a great place to find strangers to talk to and to make new kik friends.

Is it free to post kik usernames?

Yes! It is completely free.

I did not receive a welcome email?

We don't send welcome emails (or any other emails). The only email we send is password reset emails in case you request it.

Why is my account waiting for approval?

Given the easy access to our site, a lot of people try to misuse it by spamming it or posting inappropriate content. We have therefore created a system to automatically mark potential spam or inappropriate content in order to maintain high quality posts. Marked content requires manual approval. With that said, some bad users still slips through our checks sometimes and we greatly appreciate your reports.

How long does it take for my account to get approved?

Typically approval is instant, but if the profile didn't pass our automated system then expect manual approval to take up to 24 hours.

I can't login

  1. Make sure you have an account. You can sign up for free.
  2. If you have an account but don't know the password, then try to reset your password.
  3. If you forgot both your email and password, then contact us for assistance.
  4. If your password is correct but you still cannot login. That means your account is either waiting for approval or you got banned.
If you have account issues and believe you did nothing wrong, then please go ahead and contact us for assistance.

I don't receive a password reset email when requesting it

There can be 3 reasons for this.
  1. Your registered email is incorrect.
  2. Your account is awaiting approval (try again in 24 hours if you signed up recently).
  3. Your account didn't pass the approval or got banned for inappropriate content.
If you believe there has been an error, go ahead and contact us for assistance.

Someone else posted my username or my picture!

Please go ahead and contact us and we will assist you with the removal of the account.

The person I contacted is a bot / catfish / seller!?

Sorry to hear that. Anyone can post their kik usernames on our site but we do our best to remove bad users. Please press the report-link on the person's profile and provide us with some evidence. We ban bad users continuously every day, but we are dependant on your assistance!

Can I use your site without signing up?

Yes! You can view other users' posts and contact them directly in the kik messenger app. However, to post your own kik username (so that others may contact you), we require some minimal details from you.

Why do I have to provide my email?

So that you can reset your password in case you lose access to your account. Your email is not shared with anyone and is not visible to other users. We also don't send you emails unless you specifically request it.

What personal information do you have about me?

Only the information that you provide us during signup, which is your email, kik username, profile picture and country. Your password is hashed according to OWASP's recommendations, which means that it is impossible for anyone to read your password, including us. Please read our Privacy Policy for more information.

Do you share my information?

Your kik username, profile picture and country is visible to the public (which is the purpose of this site). Any other personal information is completely private and will not be shared with anyone. Please read our Privacy Policy for more information.

Can I delete my personal information from your site?

Yes! Simply press the Delete Account button once you are logged in. It will permanently delete all information we have about you.

What are the rules for posting?

We like to keep it simple. Don't post sexual content. You must be at least 15 years old. And obviously no hate speech, bullying etc. In addition, we have a massive document called Terms of Use, which in short says that you will take responsibility for whatever content you post on our site and that we are allowed to display your content. You can of course delete your account at any time as per GDPR and our Privacy Policy.

Why did you create this site?

There are other great alternatives where you can post kik usernames, but they are all heavily commercialized and stuffed with explicit / adult content which ruins the user experience (in our opinion). This site was created with non-profit in mind, as a hobby project and as a learning experience.

I lost access to my account, what should I do?

First, try to recover your account by requesting a password reset. If you do not receive an email, check the spam folder. If you are still unable to recover your account go ahead and contact us directly for assistance.

I have another question!

Great! Go ahead and Contact Us 🙂
