    Summary:

    I personally love kik, I use it way more than regular text, simply because it's faster and way more fun, I have no issue with kik, yet.

    The Kik messenger online login for PC is so easy to manage and use, it is convenient, fast and reliable. The fact that you will save your phone’s battery is welcomed. With over 200 million users worldwide you cannot afford to be left in the conversation. Helen’s story was the opposite, until she found solution to our challenge.

    Helen: “I had a lovely conversation with some old friends I ran into recently, I was so engrossed that I almost forgot my appointment for the day. Before leaving the group, one of them suggest we continue the conversation on Kik messenger, I was glad for a moment until I remember I cannot use my cell phone at work.”

    I thought she could have moved on to other platforms, there is Skype, Wechat, Facetime and Facebook Messenger, analyzing her situation again she could have installed the Kik messenger for PC to continue the conversation, which I eventually suggested to her.

    The problem is that Kik does not have an official app for PC neither is there any Kik messenger online for PC that does not need download. The only way out is for us to use the safest method used by some app developers themselves to text their apps before releasing them.

    This method is the most suitable way to chat with Kik messenger on PC, it works for Windows 7, 8 and Mac OS.
