Kik has reporting and blocking features. It will also blur image contents from new contacts.
Kik has highlighted these safety features. However it is important to note that parents cannot automatically view their child’s chats remotely. To get in they must have password access and they must access on the same device that their child uses. The age limit of 13 cannot be enforced and it is possible for children to sign up with a false date of births.
We recommend Common Sense Media for further information about Kik. Access free
