How can I prevent my teen from using Kik?

With access to your teen’s iPod, iPhone or Android device, you can uninstall Kik and use the device’s built-in parental control settings to restrict the ability to install applications. On iPod and iPhone, these are called restrictions, and on Android, these are called filters.

There are a few parental control and nanny apps available that you can use to monitor all activity on your teen's phone. There isn't one specific app we recommend as availability varies depending on the device you're using. Check out what’s available in your app store; it's a good idea to check out the app's reviews from other parents too.


You can also limit your teen’s ability to access Kik by managing their password for their Kik account. For more information on how to change the password on your teen’s Kik account, you can check out this FAQ
