  • If you are chatting to someone that you do not know in real life do not reveal any personal information about yourself or anybody close to them, even if you do not have any reason to suspect you are chatting to a spambot. This includes never given your real full name, your relocation the name of your school or where you were, or any of that information about anybody close to you who may be used as a way to identify you.
  • Also, do not click on any links that other Kik messenger users sent you, unless you of course know them and trust them already. It is very common for spambots to send links out, which they use to phish for financial information.
  • Another way of recognizing them is that their English often sounds clunky and unnatural. You have to be careful with this one as many people whose first language is not English also use the Kik messenger app but it is very easy to distinguish between someone who has some difficulties expressing themselves in English and a bot that has been designed to sound friendly.
