Reuse of inactive usernames

There is currently no way to recycle a username for an inactive account.

You can register for a new Kik account and enter a username that closely matches the desired username you're requesting. However, you'll need to use a different email address from the one registered to your current account.

Also, please keep in mind that there is no way to transfer contacts between accounts. So if you're creating a new account but want to stay connected to your friends on Kik, share your new username with friends by sending it to them from your current account. Or you can also find friends from your new account by following these steps:

  1. Open the Kik app.
  2. From your main chat list, tap the blue + icon.
  3. Go to Find People
  4. Enter the username in the search field (you will need to enter the exact username).
  5. Tap on the username from the search results to start a new chat.
