We want to get you registered and chatting on Kik ASAP! There could be a few reasons why you can't register an account.
You may see this error if someone accidentally used your email to register for an account or, if you've created an account with that email already. If any of this is the case, you can simply remove your email from the account. Read more at the link above :)
The username you want is taken
Try registering using a different username. You can use different variations of the username to include numbers, '.' and '_' to help!
You're experiencing a connection issue
If you don't have a strong internet connection, you won't be able to complete your registration! Make sure you're on a strong wifi or cellular network. Check out some more troubleshooting steps at the link above :)
You're using an older version of Kik
Make sure you're using the most up to date version of Kik available! If you're using an older device, you may want to try using a friends device to register.
There are age requirements to use Kik! Learn more here.
