Pictures have a great influence on any social messaging app. They help us to make conversation even more interesting and long-lasting. It also assists in grabbing a person’s attention instantly because our brains are connected to react to them suddenly. As there is a quote, “Pictures say a thousand words,” so you can add a little bit of spice and texture in your chat message.

If you are using the Kik Messenger for a while or just start using it, then you should know that you can also send pictures on Kik from both camera roll and live camera. Kik allows us to meet new people from anywhere, so using the picture during the chat is the perfect way to attract people. Besides, you can also share your special moment with your close friends and of course to your recently added new friend.

So in today’s article, I’m going to share with the simple few steps to send any photos on Kik and also to delete them if you accidentally share an unusual or inappropriate photo with your friends.

Okay, let’s get started.

Is Sending Pictures on Kik Safe?

In terms of privacy, yes, it is safe to send pictures on Kik. You can share your any personal photos with your friends and family members without any worries because Kik won’t leak your any private photos with the outside world.

However, if you are sending your private photos with newly meet people on Kik, then think before you act. Not all the people are good and trusted, so they can take advantage of your photo and misuse it on a criminal case. So, always think about what needs to be shared with strangers and what not. Not only the pictures but also your information; don’t share way too many things about your life with a stranger which you can find on Kik. It’s better to first understand each other than to feel embarrassed later on.  

How Long Pictures Stay on Kik?

When you send a picture or a text, then it will be stored in the Kik server as long as you are logged in. Kik won’t delete your any messages from the app until you manually delete them. You can still view your picture on Kik even though you deactivate your account. 

The only thing you need to worry about is the length of your text. Suppose, if you keep texting with someone regularly, then you will stack a new message. All your older messages will be overlapped by your new messages, so if it’s been 2 days or 48 hrs of sending pictures, then you won’t view them. Kik will automatically delete all the messages from its server if it’s more than 2 days. So, if you want to see anyone photo on Kik chat, then you have to act within 48 hours.

Does Someone Know When You Save Their Picture?

You can also save a photo of someone if you really liked it and needs later on. So that you can use it later on in messages if needed. To save a picture on Kik, long-tap on a photo and tap on the Save option. It will be stored in your phone gallery.

Besides, if you are wondering whether a person will find out or not, then it’s cool. The next person won’t know anything when you save their photos on Kik. They will not get any slightest notification like on Snapchat when you save or screenshot a picture and even messages. So feel free to save any incoming photos of someone on Kik. Besides, it’s their choice to share with you a picture, right?

Your picture was already delivered to your friend Kik messenger, and there is no other way to undo the process.

The reason why Kik only delete a picture from your side is because of a different server. Your Kik server is not the same as your friends’ Kik server.
