Are you losing your older messages on Kik? Follow along as we explore a few ways to see old Kik messages.

Kik is a messaging app that's known for its fun features. This includes talking to other people, finding new friends, making groups, joining existing groups, et cetera. However, the one problem many users have faced over the years is the inability to see old Kik messages on iPhone or Android.

Now, it has upset many people over the years, but Kik's policy is to retain privacy, so there are no changes from the app providers. So, how to see old Kik messages? Is there even a way? We'll find out, so let's get started.

What Is Kik Messenger

Kik messenger or more commonly known just as Kik, is a free instant messaging application. The application by a Canadian company called Kik interactive has graced mobile phones for more than 12 years, since its release in 2010.

It has many remarkable and fun features, such as:

  • Making group chats
  • Finding other random users
  • Sending gifs
  • Listening to music or watching YouTube videos together
  • See new people with the Meet feature

However, perhaps the anonymity this application provides is applauded the most by its users. It's a singular application, i.e., not requiring to connect with anything else such as your email, phone number, etc.

On top of that, each sign-out would delete messages, and users are unable to see them after logging in. While this is a privacy feature for many people, most view it as an inconvenience as they cannot recover essential conversations. So, let's continue our quest to recover those messages.

Does Kik Delete Messages Automatically?

Yes, Kik does delete messages once you reach a specific range. For instance, on an iPhone, you are only able to scroll back to the most recent 1000 messages you have sent. While Kik on Android only lets you scroll back to the recent 600 messages.

On top of that, logging out and back in will clear all of your chat histories. Or, if you sign in on a new phone and cause the logout from the other one, it'll also make you lose all your chat history. So, why exactly does Kik do that?

  • Kik doesn't store messages on a server
  • Kik uses phone memory as primary messaging storage
  • Phones allow only limited memory usage (i.e., iPhones and Androids)

These factors cause Kik to delete messages surpassing 1000 on an iPhone or 600 on an Android device.

How to See Old Kik Messages on iPhone

While messages are deleted in your Kik app after surpassing a specific number, that doesn't mean they're lost forever.

There are a few ways that you can employ to recover them, and we've compiled a list of four of them. Therefore, without further ado, let's get started:

Method 1. View Old Kik Messages on iPhone from Kik History

As mentioned, you can view up to 1000 recent messages on an iPhone. However, you need to follow a specific stream of steps for that to happen. Here they are:

Step 1. Launch Kik app on iPhone.

Step 2. Log into your Kik account.

Step 3. Scroll up until you see the latest 1000 messages.

Bear in mind that this is also limited, as you won't be able to see some of those messages after 48 hours. However, once you log out, you won't be able to see any messages, as Kik automatically wipes out any older messages after a user logs out.

Method 2. View Old Kik Messages on iPhone with Software

The best method is to use a third-party tool to view your lost Kik messages. Since Kik stores these messages on your phone, there are saved encrypted files that feature your older messages. However, Kik is just programmed not to access them

But, a professional tool that knows how to decrypt such files and recover old messages might just read them. One of the best programs to do that is EaseUS MobiSaver. Let's explore why.

Brief Introduction to EaseUS MobiSaver

EaseUS MobiSaver is an outstanding recovery and backup tool. Designed for iPhone devices of all kinds, it has all the features you need in a recovery tool.

  • It reads iTunes and iCloud backups
  • It supports Kik, and other apps like LINE, WhatsApp
  • Recovers not only chat but attachments and media as well

On top of that, it'll help you recover if you accidentally log out, delete your messages if a virus attacks, or if the device gets damaged.

Step 1. Connect your Android phone to the computer
