Hi all! How do you save Kik photos, videos and messages? I want to keep copies of those funny Kik chat history and photos to avoid losing them accidentally. Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

It is easy to save single Kik images or video with the Kik app itself. But for Kik messages, there is no official way to do that. You should seek for another way to save your Kik messages.

Don’t worry, here we are going to show you some useful tips and tricks to save Kik pictures, videos and messages.

You can also learn how to retrieve old kik messages with FoneLab.

1. How to Save Kik Messages

There are quite a few different reasons to archive messages on Kik Messenger.

  1. If you have a conversation with colleague about a project plan and might need to refer to it later on.
  2. If there is a debt someone owes you, it might be a good idea to keep the messages you exchange with them in case you need to use them later on in a court of law.
  3. Some people also tend to save messages with friends and family members just so they can look back on them fondly over the years.

Since there isn’t a method to save your Kik messages, I suggest you can use your iPhone camera to capture the screen of the Kik conversation you want to keep. Or use a different phone or camera to take photos of it.

Another option is simply copy and paste the Kik messages. While it is true that the copy and paste method of saving Kik messages is a bit tedious and time consuming, it is also effective.

One thing you should know about is that the app can automatically save the latest 1000 messages that you have had in last 48 hours. For older chats, you will see the last 500 messages.

2. How to Download Kik Video, Photo

As for Kik photos and videos, there is a quick way to download one by one. Locate the Kik picture or video you want to keep, press and hold it in full screen, and then click on the Download arrow on the top-right corner for Kik download.

Alternatively, you can also save the photo by taking a snapshot of your screen and save the video by recording screen. All iOS devices are capable of taking a snapshot of your screen and iOS 11 or later has the screen recording feature. Don't forget to open the picture in full screen by tapping it before the beginning. 

However, these photos and videos are saved in the Gallery app on your iPhone. If you want to save them to computer, please keep reading the following part.
