How to change Kik username

For many, anonymity is important. People’s lives today can be completely displayed in their social networks. But there are many people who prefer to remain anonymous or just like to mislead people by constantly changing nicknames. Many applications allow you to do this an infinite number of times. A name change can be useful in different situations, for example, if you want to introduce yourself as a different person or if you are an investigative journalist and want to remain anonymous. This is also possible with the app Kik.

What is Kik

Kik is a freeware instant messaging mobile app from the Canadian company Kik Interactive. It is available for free on iOS and Android devices. It uses your mobile Internet or WiFi connection to send and receive messages, pictures, videos, stickers, weblinks, and so on to other people. Kik is known for allowing its users to remain anonymous. It does not require you to have an email or phone number to register.

Can I change my username in Kik

It isn’t possible to change UserName in Kik. If you want to change your username, you have to create a new account. But as in many other apps, you can change the display name that other people see. Kik allows you to do this an infinite number of times. It is also the name you give people so that they can find you and contact you through the app.

How to change display name in Kik

If you do decide to change the display name in the Kik app, it’s pretty easy. You need to follow these instructions:

  • First, open the Kik app and sign in
  • Select the “cog” icon in the top-right section of the main page to access settings
  • Then click on “Your Account” in the settings
  • Click on the “Name” tab
  • Think of a new name and type it in, then click “Save” in the upper right corner
  • The app will bring you back to “Your Account
  • Here you have to confirm the name change and exit the settings
  • On the main Kik page, your new name should now get displayed at the top with your profile image

How to choose a name in Kik

The choice of a name depends on your goals. Some people may be interviewed using the app. Some people just like the fact that they can feel safe because the app gives them anonymity. Most people use Kik just to communicate with a person and get to know them better before they tell them their real name and information about themselves.

If you find it hard to come up with a name, you can always use special sites to do this, such as Jimpix, SpinXO, or Namestation Kik. Sites that generate names create them randomly with algorithms or they can ask you a few questions and pick a name based on your answers. A generated name is not always the best option. But you can use it to come up with a nickname that works for you. Remember that if your goal is anonymity, your fake name should not be related to you and your actual identity.
