Kik Messenger users that have an Android device compatible with the Kik Messenger are able to change their theme following a very simple process. One of the most popular themes that Android Kik Messenger users can choose from is the peppermint pink Kik theme.
Unfortunately, this theme customization is not available to users with iOS devices (either iPods, or iPhones) or the Windows Phone. However, there are millions of users of Kik Messenger who access the instant messaging platform from an Android device. All of them are able to change their theme, if they so choose, easily by using the Google Play app store.
Customizable themes are only available to Android users. So, unless you have an Android smart phone or mobile device, you will not be able to use the peppermint pink Kik Messenger or any other of the many exciting and colorful themes.
The reason why the customizable themes are not available for Windows Phone or iOS devices is to do their respective app stores being for strict about the kind of apps that they include in their catalogues. If you have ever used, say, an Android device and an iOS one you will have some experience using both the Apple app store and the Google Play app store. In that case, you would have noticed that there tend to be a lot more apps in the Google Play store than there are on the Apple app store. This has its pros and cons, of course. On the face of it, there is a larger choice of apps in the Google Play store, but this also means that now and again there can be some scam apps that crop up. Users of Android devices sometimes need to be extra careful when downloading and installing apps from Google Play in a way iOS or Windows Phone users do not normally need to.
Before we go into what a Kik theme is and what you would need to do to apply it, let’s talk about more about security. Even though Kik themes are popular and many people using without reporting any trouble, you should always be aware of the fact that they are not an official app. In other words, changing your Kik theme is not something that will be supported by the Kik Messenger app. There is no Kik theme customization that is authorized by the Kik Messenger app. If you come up against any problems with the customization theme tool, you will not be able to get any assistance with it from Kik Messenger.
Now that we have explained what kind of device and the possible risks involved in using Kik theme, it is now time to go through what Kik themes actually are and what you will need to change yours to the peppermint pink theme.
What Is A Kik Theme And How Do You Apply It?
theme (noun)- the general setting or ambiance of something
Just to put it in very simple terms: a Kik theme is the look of the Kik app. If this sounds simple enough it is because it is. You should, however, be aware of the fact that changing Kik themes means that you would actually be downloading something new to your Android smart phone or mobile device. In fact, you would be downloading and installing a different app.
If you want to use the peppermint pink Kik theme, you will need to delete any version of the Kik Messenger app you are currently using on your Android smart phone or mobile device, before you anything else. This means that, even though you will use the same login details for the new themed version of Kik, all your chat history will be deleted. So, before you go ahead and uninstall the Kik Messenger app, make sure that you save anything you will want to keep because you will not have access to your chat history even if you install Kik Messenger again. So, if you want to keep any chats you have had, before you go delete the Kik Messenger app, you will need to copy and paste those messages you will like to save or simple take screen captures of them. Also, make sure that you save any pictures or video files that you have receive. They will also be erased when you uninstall the Kik Messenger app if you have not saved them.
Here are some other themes you can get:

There are other things to bear in mind before you uninstall the Kik Messenger app. This applies to when you are uninstalling it in order to download a new theme version, or for any other reason. You will need to make sure that you know what your user name, password and the email address that are attached to your Kik Messenger app.
If you have been using the Kik Messenger app for a while you may be forgiving for having forgotten some, or even all, of your login details. The problem is that once you have installed and downloaded the Kik Messenger app for the first time and logged in, you will not normally need to be asked to enter your login details ever again. But, if you uninstall it and then install it again (or the theme version of Kik), you will need to log back in again. So, make sure that you check that you have the correct details and have access to the email address attached to your Kik Messenger profile. If you do not happen to have access to the email address you used when you originally created your Kik Messenger account, you can change it at any time. The important thing is that, if you need you change your email address, you change it before you delete the Kik Messenger app from your Android smart phone.
The final thing to have into account is that if you want to change your Kik theme, you will not be able to use the latest version of the Kik Messenger. For the most part, you will not notice any difference but some of the features might work a little bit differently; for example, Kik video.
Why can you not have the latest version of Kik Messenger in the peppermint pink theme? This is because, as we explained earlier, any themed version of Kik Messenger is not official. This means that you because these versions are not authorized by Kik Messenger, they are not necessarily the latest available version. If you want to have the latest possible version of Kik Messenger you will need to head over to the Google Play app store and get it instead of downloading an unofficial version.
After you have taken all the necessary precautions, you will be ready to install the peppermint pink theme. If you are still sure that you want the peppermint pint Kik theme, then head over to your Android device web browser. If you search for “peppermint pink Kik theme” you will get different websites where you will be able to download this version of the themed version of Kik Messenger. The best website to do so from is most probably the one called Beautiful Droid. You will also be able to see how the theme looks before you make the decision whether that theme is for you or not. If you are not convinced by it, you will also be able to preview other themes.
By downloading the peppermint pink Kik theme you will be downloading an APK file (we have talked about APK files elsewhere on this website before). All you will need to do is download the appropriate APK file for the theme version and, once it has been downloaded on your smart phone or mobile device, you will need to install it like you would do with any other app. But, remember that you will only be able to install the themed version if you have previously deleted the Kik Messenger app. The same mobile device will not be able to hold both versions at the same time.
Once downloaded, you should be able to log in using your Kik Messenger login details. The everyday experience of instant messaging using Kik Messenger should be the same or, at least, very similar to using the official Kik Messenger app. If you encounter any problem using the peppermint pink themed version of Kik (or any other themed version), you will not be able to obtain any assistance from Kik Messenger. In the first instance, you could try to uninstall it and install it again to see if that improves performance. If that still does not make any difference, you can always install it, head over to the Google Play app store and get the official version of the Kik Messenger app.
The Kik Messenger app is a great instant messaging platform. Some users are not happy with its appearance and look around for different themes. Although Kik Messenger does not allow you to change themes from the app, there are ways of getting unofficial and unauthorized versions of Kik (based off older versions of Kik Messenger) that have different themes. One of the most popular of them is the peppermint pink Kik themed version. You can easily obtain this for free on the Internet but you should be aware of the potential risks you would run when you get this or any other themed version of the chatting app.
