KIK Tips and Tricks: Read the messages on KIK invisibly!
KIK messenger does its best to let you know what is going on in your social circle at all times. Whenever you will send a message with this application, you will be able to see its status. Bu status we mean whether it has been delivered to the other person’s account and whether they have received or read your message. The first letter of each of the two main statuses will be placed right next to your message; Delivered (D) and Received (R). Now this feature is very helpful for a lot of us at most times because say, if you sent an important message to someone and you are waiting to get a response, these statuses will allow you to know right away whether your message has been delivered and received. However, at many times you do not want the other person to know that you have read their message. Who knowns? Maybe the both of you have had some differences lately. But when your phone gives you a notification regarding a message you have received, you might feel the unrest if you have not had the chance to read it. So in case you were hoping to take a sneak peek at the message, we have a way for you. All you need to do is; you will turn your phone’s mode into airplane mode and then you will launch your application to read the message or messages you received a notification for. After you are done with your business all you have to do is shut down KIK messenger and take your phone out of the airplane mode. Then you can launch KIK messenger again if you like!

Hold on, KIK has not officially launched its application for Windows personal computer. Sadly, there is no way to access KIK messenger across multiple platforms. So if you are someone who regularly uses a computer device more often than a mobile phone but still wishes to stay connected with their friends on KIK, we can give you a way to access KIK messenger on your desktop. You need an Android emulator known as Bluestacks. You must have heard of this emulator before too because this famous emulator allows people to use Android applications on their computer.

So, if you wish to put them on a pause you can follow these steps:
-You will launch KIK and select “Your Account”
– Now you will change your KIK name. Your new name is going to be “is typing…” and you will name your first name as it is. Only your surname is going to change
This will be a fun way of deceiving other. It will show them that you are typing and the other person will have to wait for your reply!
