We live an era where we don’t meet strangers at the restaurants or streets or at any social events, but online. It’s not at all uncanny to hear that people meet online or they meet online and got married later. We can without any doubt say that it’s an online period. There are certain apps which are based on the same impression. Talking about these the most popular among them is Kik Messenger.
Kik messenger is the most popular apps when it comes to online. It is a free instant messenger application for smartphones. It is an application developed by a Canadian named KIK. The app is available for free on ios, android, and windows. It requires mobile data or wifi. Main features of the app include sharing of photos, videos, messages, these are some basic features that every instant messenger provides.
A special feature it poses is that it allows anonymity, that is it allows users to use the app without providing any contact number, it also does prevent users from getting located. The basic requirement to use this app is the full name of the user, email id, birth date etc. Although it is required the user must be 13 years or above the age to use the app, there are many teenagers who are under 13 and still registers themselves for the app. There is no other way to verify the age of the user so it may lead to miss use of the app.
The application basically allows you to meet strangers online and interact with them without exchanging any contact number or email id,all we need is kikbase.com – kik usernames. To add other people you can simply scan the unique code from your phone and the person will be automatically added. The application has also been in some controversies, there is always much concern about the app regarding its anonymity. Most of the time it may happen that the conversation may become an adult and it is not at all fair for a teenager to have this kind of conversation.
Kik messenger may help few of the people who are lonely, don’t have any friends or those people who are depressed. Meeting new people online sharing your darkest secret, as there is anonymity no one will know who you are. This is a good way to relax and lessen the stress.
