Kik Messenger is a cross-platform IM app that you can use to chat with friends, send videos, photos, etc. Unfortunately this app is controversial these days as lots of users are running into crash or error message while using Kit.

Kik Messenger is crashing or displaying error message?

"My kik was acting fine, till now. Every time i open the app it keeps crashing, please help."

"I was using this app for over a year with no problems but all of a sudden now when I open it, it just crashes after 5 seconds of displaying the background for the app without content. I tried deleting the application and reinstalling but the same thing happens…"

Either Kik keeps crashing after an iOS (iOS 10, for instance) or Android 7.0/6.0 update, or it started to crash all of a sudden, here are the feasible ways to fix Kik crashes and displays error on iPhone, Android or Windows phone.

How to fix kik problems (crash, error, freeze) on iPhone & Android Phone

1. Try force closing and re-opening the app (iOS devices)

If Kik crashes on opening or freezes when you try to send pictures, try force closing and then re-opening Kik on your device.

To force close an app on iOS 10/9/8 devices:

2. Update Kik to latest version

If you updated your iPhone to latest iOS 10, please also update the Kik to be compatible with the latest iOS. Open app Store on iPhone, in Updates section you can check whether there is an update for Kik. If have, please tap UPDATE button to update it.

Sometimes Kik crashed on Android because your Android phone has been updated to 7.1/7.0 or Android 6.0, while Kik has not been updated accordingly to support the new OS. Please keep an eye on Kik and update it when available.

3. Reinstallation of Kik Messenger (for all smart phones)

The easiest way to recover Kik when crashed on your smart phones is to delete/remove Kik and do a fresh install.

Download Kik (iOS) on App Store
Get Kik (Android) on Google Play

Note: Reinstallation will erase all chat history on Kik, you can use a Kik backup tool to back up your Kik chat history in advance. Never mind if you did not make a backup, you can recover lost Kik messages using Kik recovery software.

4. Free up iPhone storage space to run Kik smoothly

When your iPhone is almost full and does not have enough available storage, you may experience Kik crashes on iOS 10/9/8 iPhone, or iPad. This problem can also happen on other apps such as WhatsApp. I recommend you to use iCareFone, an iOS clean and speedup tool to delete all junk files, temp files, cache files and other hidden useless system files easily from iPhone 7/7 Plus, also PRODUCT (RED) iPhone 7, iPhone SE/6s/6/5s/5c/5.
