How do I block someone?

To block someone you don’t want to talk to on Kik:

  1. From the chat with the person you want to block
  2. Tap their Display Name at the top of the chat beside the >
  3. Tap the More icon
  4. Tap Block name
  5. Tap Block

On iPhone or iPod you can also:

  1. Tap Settings
  2. Select Privacy
  3. Select Block List
  4. Tap +
  5. Select the person you want to block
  6. Tap Block to confirm

Messages from the blocked person will be hidden until you unblock them. The blocked person won't be able to add you to any group chats. Also, when the blocked person tries to send you a message, they don't know that they are blocked and their message is never delivered to you.

However, previous chats, your profile picture, as well as changes you make to it will still appear on the blocked person's app.

- To unblock someone, follow the same steps as above but tap Unblock
- To see the list of people you've blocked, go to your Block List. Settings > Privacy > Block List
- See the FAQ on managing messages from new people to learn how to use the New People feature
