Delete chat messages

On Kik, you have the option to delete individual messages or entire chats.

 

To delete an individual message:

  1. Open the Kik app.
  2. Select a chat you would like to delete from your chat list. 
  3. Tap and hold the message you'd like to delete until the option to Copy or Delete appears.
  4. Tap Delete.
  5. Tap Delete again to confirm and remove the message. 

Please keep in mind that deleting a message from your device will not delete the message from the chat recipient’s device since all messages are stored locally on each individual device.

 

To delete an entire chat:

  1. Open the Kik app.
  2. Select a chat you would like to delete from your chat list.
  3. For iOS users: swipe left on the chat and tap Delete.
  4. For Android users: tap and hold down on the tap until a pop-up appears on the screen and then tap Delete.

Please note that deleting a group chat will also result in you leaving the group!
