Before going into the details of this tutorial and explaining yourself how to delete Kik account, let me list the options agolable to you, so that you can choose the one you think is most appropriate for your needs.
If you have decided to cancel your Kik account but are concerned that you may have second thoughts in the future, you can consider the possibility of deactivate your account. It is the ideal solution for those who intend to take a break from the messaging service without necessarily having to delete their profile. The latter (with the relative data) will simply be hidden e, in case of second thoughts, it can be recovered at any time.
If, on the other he, your intention is to definitively put an end to your experience on Kik, you can request the definitive cancellation of your account and all related data.
