The default messaging app of your phone is a has-been since the introduction of third-party instant messaging apps.
Instant messaging apps provide additional features like sharing photos, videos, joining groups, and so on. And these features make you shift your interest from the usual messages app to third-party instant messaging apps.
One of the popular apps that teens and adults like to use for communication is Kik.
On one hand, where the app helps you connect to your known ones and new people from around the world, it exposes you to people with bad intentions on the other.
That’s the reason why spying on Kik messages and other activities are significant. And which app makes this task possible? The answer is iKeyMonitor.
Let’s discuss everything in detail now.

Setup Of App On Your Device
For starting with the monitoring of someone’s Kik account, you need a successful installation of iKeyMonitor on their phone and some setup needs to be done on your device as well.
Let’s discuss the things that are to be done on your device first.
1. The first thing that you need to do is, open the official website of iKeyMonitor and SIGN UP on the software.
2. Now select the type of device that you want to monitor. In our case, we are choosing Android. If you want to monitor the Kik account of an iOS user, you need to jailbreak their iPhone first. Kik monitoring is not available on non-jailbroken iPhones.
3. Next you have to create an account on iKeyMonitor by providing the email id and setting up a password and then clicking on SIGN UP.
4. After that, you will get your login credentials at the provided email address.

Setup Of App On Kid’s/Spouse’s Phone
Once you have created an account on iKeyMonitor, it’s time to set up the app on the target phone. This will require physical access to their phone for about 5-10 minutes.
1. Reach the official website of iKeyMonitor using the kid’s phone and LOG IN to the app using the credentials that you received on your registered email.
2. Select the type of device that the target person uses, that is, Android or iOS.
3, Time to download iKeyMonitor by tapping on Download iKeyMonitor for Android.
4. Now you need to give certain permissions to the app and configure the settings.
Finally, it’s time to use this amazing Kik tracker software for monitoring your loved ones.
Spying On Kik Activities
After the installation and setup on the target phone, it’s time to get back to your device. Right now, you’ll be on the dashboard of the app and you need to select the Logs option given on the left-hand side. Then select Chats, and under Chats, select Kik.
Here you will get the list of all the messages that the target person is receiving from various Kik users.
On the left-hand side, you are supposed to see all the Kik contacts and groups that the user has joined.
But the working of iKeyMonitor for Kik tracking is quite unpredictable.
The thing is that you will see all the messages that the target person receives from various Kik contacts, but some of the messages that were actually sent to some other contact might appear like they were sent in the group.
Like in our case, a message Heyy there was sent to Ross Warner. But that message was appearing in the Savage NFL Chat group instead. While in the chat section of Ross, we received a notification Warner, which is initially the full name of the contact.
Although the name of the contacts won’t appear in the main chats and you will see Unknown instead of the name, you will receive a notification that a new chat has been started with the following person (with name appearing.)
Date and time stamp will appear with each and every chat. So you will always be aware when a particular message was sent or received.
For quick results, you can also use the various sorting options available. Under Type sorting, you can select whether you want to view the Text Logs, Voice, Img, and Attachment.
Similarly, under the contacts section, you can sort the messages by contacts and groups.
We were quite sure that we will also get the screenshots of the Kik app under the Screenshots – app section. But unfortunately, even after thorough testing, we didn’t receive even a single screenshot from Kik.
You can also keep an eye on the messages sent on Kik from the Keystrokes section.
Overall, it was a bit difficult to monitor the Kik messages and other Kik activities, but still, the work is quite satisfactory. And the updates on the new messages are quick.
Other Options To Read Someone’s Kik Messages Without Them Knowing
iKeymonitor won’t let you down when it comes to data sync speed and completeness of the messages. But you might still like to use some other app to keep track of your spouse’s or girlfriend’s Kik activities.
KidsGuard Pro will reveal all the Kik activities in the form of messages as well as in screenshots. uMobix, on the other hand, will only show the results in the form of text, but the app is quite reliable.
