Is there a way to manage messages from new people?

When you're using the latest version of Kik, and you receive a message from someone new, the New Chat button will appear at the bottom of your chats screen. To manage these messages:

  1. Tap the New Chat button                                                         New_Chat_Button_Crop.jpg
  2. Tap the chat you want to open
  3. Tap Ignore or Chat


If you tap Chat, the cohat will be added to your main list and the user will be added to your contacts. Tapping Ignore will give you the option to Delete, Block, or Report as Spam.


  • If someone new sends you an image or a content message, it will be blurred. Selecting Tap to Reveal will show you the image or content they sent you. If you exit the chat and then reopen it, the image or content will be blurred again.
