How do I update my phone number?

Android phones automatically update your phone number if your device has one.

On your Android, iPod, or iPhone with the latest version of Kik, you can update your phone number at any time:

  1. From your main chats list, tap the + icon
  2. Tap Find People
  3. Tap Find by phone contact
  4. Tap the More button
  5. Tap Disable
  6. Tap I'm Sure
  7. Enter your phone number
  8. Tap Find Friends

On your Android device with no phone number, or your iPod and iPhone with an older version of Kik, to update your phone number:

  1. From your main chats list, tap the Search icon
  2. Tap Use Phone Contacts
  3. If the feature is on already, tap the Menu icon in the top right and then Disable
  4. Enter your phone number
  5. Tap Find Friends

On your Windows Phone, Symbian or BlackBerry, this feature is called Address Book Matching. To update your phone number on these devices:

  1. Tap Settings
  2. Select Privacy
  3. Move the Address Book Matching slider to the on position (if it’s already on, slide it off then back on)
  4. Enter your phone number
  5. Tap Submit

Tip

Enter your exact phone number to match it with friends on Kik who have your phone number saved in their phone contacts (Android does this for your automatically if your device has a phone number).
