Can I get deleted chats back?
Is there any way to get my Kik messages back from my iPhone? I didn’t mean to delete them and I need them back!
Kik messenger, also called Kik, is an instant messenger application for mobile devices from Canadian company Kik Interactive. It allows iOS, Android, and Windows Phone users to receive messages, pictures, videos, gifts, games, and more after users register a username. It is easy to connect your friends, stay in the loop, and explore – all through chat.
You may lost your Kik chat history from iPhone when:
1) You reset your account
2) You login to your account on a different device
3) You delete your Kik app
4) You reset or update your iOS system or your mobile device encountered some other data missing scenarios.
Solution 1: If you haven’t reset or deleted Kik, Kik Auto-save
If you haven’t recently reset or deleted Kik, your recent chat history will be saved on your iPhone or iPod.
For recent chats you’ve had in the last 48 hrs, you’ll see the last 1000 messages. For older chats, you’ll see the last 500 messages.
Apart from the above, Kik doesn’t store any of your messages, so once you’ve deleted or lost your Kik chats, this method can not help you at all.
