1) Why is Kik getting disconnected all the time?
There are several options to try here. The first one is to use another internet connection whether it’s wifi or mobile data. Another solution could be to restart your PC. Third, check if you have the latest version of Kik installed. Otherwise, you have to update it on the Play Store or get the newest APK file.
2) Why won’t the videos and images appear?
If there’s no problem with your internet connection, the problem probably lies with your friend’s connection. A slow or inconsistent connection affects whether an image or video file is successfully uploaded and sent to the receiver. Thus, your friend might need to resend the files again.
3) Why did my chat conversations disappear?
Your chats disappear for several reasons. For one, you might have logged out of the app or used another device to log in to the same account. Likewise, you may have deleted your Kik account or the app itself without knowing. You should then reinstall the app and check if you still have your account.
