Sync phone contacts to Kik

The easiest way to find your friends on Kik is by syncing your phone contacts. Then, once you sync phone contacts, you will be matched with friends who have your phone number and email address in their contacts. 

iOS & Android:

  1. Open the Kik app.
  2. Tap the blue + icon.
  3. Tap Find People.
  4. Tap Find by Phone Contacts.
  5. Enter your phone number.
  6. Tap Find Friends.




  1. Open the Kik app.
  2. Tap the profile icon in the top right-hand corner.
  3. Go to Privacy.
  4. Toggle on Use Phone Contacts.

Once this is enabled, you'll see a match in your New Chats list if your friends on Kik have the Let Friends Find Me feature enabled. Friends may also be able to find you with your email or phone number if you have Let Friends Find Me enabled. 

Note: even if you're using your phone contacts to find friends on Kik, your phone number won't ever be visible on Kik.
