While Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are household names, parents may not know about the Kik messaging app -- or the surprising simplicity of the -up process that only requires a user name,password and birthday.
With more than million users worldwide, according to Kik, the app is a hub of conversation where friends in real life -- and virtual ones -- can exchange texts, photos, sketches and videos. The ease of finding usernames though is easy, allowing virtual strangers to message almost anyone on the service.
A search for "Kik user" yields various sites listing Kik usernames for people on the app, including "female user list" and a site dedicated to "Kik sexting. Founded in by a group of University of Waterloo students, the company makes it clear on its website it regularly works with law enforcement to educate them about the service as well as offer them guidance on how to submit emergency requests for basic subscription information in the event they believe someone is facing an imminent threat.
Requests to preserve data can also be made by law enforcement, who are advised to attach a subpoena, warrant or court order in order to compel Kik to consider preserving and releasing private information. The company is also a member of the Virtual Global Task Force organization, which has the mission of fighting sexual abuse of minors online.
When Kik users register, they're asked to enter their birthday. However, it's possible that precocious pre-teens will outsmart the first checkpoint by entering a fake date of birth.
For users already on Kik, a "new people" feature will allow them to keep messages from new people in a separate section labeled "new chats. They'll have the option to start a chat, delete the chat, block the user or report it as spam. LOG IN. We'll notify you here with news about.
