Did you suddenly stop getting replies from someone you were messaging on Kik? You might wonder if they deleted their account or even blocked you. Did you do something that would make them want to do either? Kik is a popular messaging app, and if you’ve been using it for a while, you probably have a few contacts. So, it can be frustrating when one of them suddenly stops responding to your messages.
You can figure out if someone has deleted their account or if they’ve just blocked you by looking for certain things. So let’s find out how you can do that.
To see if someone has deleted their Kik account, you should look for these things:
- Their default profile picture is back
- Your messages aren’t getting delivered
- The username has disappeared from your contact list
If you see any of these things, it’s likely that the person has deleted their Kik account. Anyway, read on to find out more about how to tell if someone has deleted or blocked you on Kik.
Can One Delete Their Kik Account?
Yes, Kik has a delete account feature that allows users to delete their accounts whenever they want. In addition, Kik does not hold you back or lock you in like some other social media platforms. So, if someone wants to delete their account, they can do so without any problems.
How To Know If Someone Deleted Their Kik Account?
Did you come home just to message your friends on Kik only to find out that one of them is no longer there? Are you questioning if they deleted their Kik account or if they just blocked you? Did you have a fight or say something that would make them not want to talk to you? Or there had been nothing going on and you are just wondering why they would delete their Kik account without any warning.
Well, if you are dwelling on the latter, then you should stop because they have every right to delete their account if they want to. Kik does not lock users in and people can delete their accounts whenever they please.
But how can you tell if someone has deleted their Kik account or just blocked you?
There are a few things that you can look for:
If someone has blocked you, their profile picture will still be visible to you. But, if they have deleted their Kik account, their profile picture will not be visible and it will default to the Kik logo.
The human logo is the default profile picture for Kik and it is what you will see if someone has deleted their account.
So, if you see the Kik logo as their profile picture, they have probably deleted their account. Don’t stress too much about it because people have a right to delete their accounts if they want to.
But, there must be a reason your friend deleted their Kik account, right? Try and think of what could have happened that made them want to delete their account. If you cant think of anything, maybe you should ask them.
Your Message Doesn’t Get Delivered.
This is a pretty obvious one, but it still needs to be mentioned.
If your messages are not getting delivered, it means that the person you are trying to message has either blocked you or deleted their account.
Because if they have just blocked you, your messages would still be delivered, but they would never see them.
The Username Has Disappeared From Your Contact List
It’s pretty obvious that you had saved the person’s Kik username in your contact list if you are trying to message them. You wont just have their name in your contact list, you will also have their Kik username.
But, if the person has deleted their account, their Kik username would also disappear from your contact list. So, if you try to message them and their Kik username is not appearing in your contact list, they have probably deleted their account.
Ask The Person
The best way to find out if someone has blocked you is to just ask them. Reach out to them and ask if they have blocked you. If they say yes, then at least you know the truth.
But, if they say no and you are still not able to message them or see their profile picture, they might have deleted their account.
You know, people tend to delete their social media accounts all the time without any warning. So, don’t take it too personally if your friend has deleted their Kik account.
But, sometimes, they might just be taking a break from social media, or maybe they fought with someone and need some time to cool off. So, don’t jump to conclusions too quickly.
And if the person is not doing well and you are worried about them, try to reach out to them in other ways.
How To Know If Someone Has Blocked Me On Kik?
Sometimes, what happens is you dont get any warning before the person blocks you. One day you are messaging them finely, and the next, you find out they have blocked you.
You might assume they just deleted their Kik account, but that is not always the case. It might be embarrassing to talk to the person and then find out they had blocked you.
So, to look for the signs that someone has blocked you:
Your Message Gets Delivered, But Is Never Seen
This is a pretty big sign that you have been blocked. If the person you are trying to message has blocked you, your messages will still be delivered, but they will never see them.
Send the person a text and see if it gets delivered. It does not have to be any type of long message. Just a simple “hey” will do. Text them and see if you get a “D” next to your message.
Now, you need to wait for at least one to two days since the person might not be active on Kik all the time. If they never see your message, it is pretty safe to say that you have been blocked.
You Can’t Add Them To A Group.
If you try to add the person in a group and you get an error message saying that the person cannot be added, it means that they have blocked you.
If you can add everybody but them in a group, it is pretty obvious that they have blocked you.
To check if they have blocked you, try and add them to a group chat with somebody who will be okay with you doing that. If you get an error message, you know that the person has blocked you.
If they have not blocked you, their username would show up when you try to add them in a group.
Ask Somebody Else To Check
This is a pretty effective way of finding out if someone has blocked you or not. Its important to clear your doubts before you confront the person.
If you are not able to see their profile picture or their username, ask somebody else to check if they can see it on their account. If the person is able to see it, then you have been blocked by that person.
You Cannot Call Them
You wont be able to call the person if they have blocked you. You will see a message saying that the user is unavailable when you try to call them.
But, sometimes this also happens if the person has just turned off their Kik or maybe their phone is dead. So, don’t jump to conclusions too quickly.
Ask The Person
The best way to find out if someone has blocked you is to just ask them. Reach out to them and ask if they have blocked you. If they respond and say that they have not, then you know that you are not blocked. If they do not respond or say that they have blocked you, then you can assume that you are indeed blocked.
You know, it’s important to clear the air and communicate directly with the person you think may have blocked you. If they have, then you can move on and stop wasting your time messaging them. If they haven’t, then great! You can continue messaging them as normal.
If its your actions that made them block you, then you should take responsibility for that and apologize. Maybe they will forgive you and unblock you. But even if they don’t, at least you tried!

Once, when I tried reaching out to someone on Kik, their username had disappeared from my contact list. I tried sending them a message and it said that the message could not be delivered. That’s when I knew they had deleted their account.
I was really upset because we were good friends, and I didn’t know why they would delete their account without telling me. I ended up just messaging one of their other friends to ask what was going on. They told me that the person had gotten a new phone and just wanted to start using Kik with a clean slate.
That made sense to me, and I was relieved that there wasn’t any drama between us. But it taught me how things can change quickly on Kik and how important it is to stay in touch with your friends.
