Kik Messenger, usually called Kik, is a free instant messaging app for mobile users. It is available for both iOS and Android.
The good news is after such a rough run for Kik Messenger, it is still with us and will continue growing with the help of its new owner - MediaLab.
Kik is a quite old intent message app compared with WhatsApp and Facebook Messengers. It is very easy to use, You just need to register a username after installing this app on your mobile device, then you can send and receive texts, pictures, emoji, videos, sketches, and other contents by using Wi-Fi or your mobile’s data plan.
Users generate much valuable information on Kik, so, it’s a disaster if they delete some important Kik messages mistakenly. Because Kik won’t save chat history for you. And what is worse, there is no backup and restore service with Kik, so you can’t retrieve lost Kit messages back with the app itself.
However, the deleted chats are actually not permanently disappeared on your mobile device. They just become invisible to you and can be back with some outside help. Here I would like to show you 3 methods to get back the deleted Kik chat history.
There is a chance that your friends who you have the conversation with still keep the old chat history.
So why not contact that friend and ask him or her to send you back those messages or the screenshot of them. If your friend doesn’t have the old chats, let’s move to method 2.
You can never recover deleted Kik messages on iPhone without any third-party tool. iPhone Data Recovery will be the last tool for you to retrieve lost/deleted data on any iOS device, including iPhone, iPad, and iPod. You are able to restore almost any iPhone data, file, and information, for instance, messages(SMS, iMessage, Kik/WhatsApp/Viber/Messenger messages), Contacts, Photos, Notes, and even app files.

Unfortunately, there is no recovery tool that can help you to recover deleted Kik messages on Android directly. We can only try to recover the file that store Kik messages and the attached images that sent through Kik which you give you some clue about the deleted messages.
Steps to recover deleted Kik app data and images on Android Phone
Step 1 Install the data recovery software for free with the right link accordingly (Windows version or Mac version depends on your operating system). And then connect your Android device to the computer using the USB cable.
Step 2 Choose the Android Data Recovery section on the interface.
Step 3 You should enable the USB debugging if your device hasn’t been done before. Follow the guide to open USB debugging mode and then click on the OK button to move on.
Step 4 Select Messages and Documents to scan the deleted kik messages from your device directly.
Step 5 The software needs to get the privilege to scan lost data from your Android device. It will install a root app on the device only you permit it to. So tap Allow/Authorize/Grant to authorize the operation. Then the software starts to analyze and scan for more deleted files.
Step 6 Navigate to Messages again to check whether the deleted Kik messages are found or not. Select the found items and click Recover to save them on your computer.
