Kik once contacted my mom because I am apparently “underaged” for the application. On the iPhone the rating is 17+, but I read reviews and photos for the app and the majority of the reviews state that the rating is not needed and it’s what you make of the app. So I downloaded it. That was about 3 months or so ago. I got bullied once, and I didn’t make much of it. I replied a few times telling the person to stop, none more. There were swears in the insults, I suppose that’s a reason my mother was contacted. I was talking with a few friends from the Internet and they had the privileges to cuss. I took no problem with it since they weren’t insults to me or anyone else. But I did learn that Kik and a bunch of other texting apps monitor your conversations. They found my mother because she pays my cell phone bill. I don’t believe I entered my own birthday, since I’m 12 years old. I hope everybody who reads this understands to be careful if you’re underaged and using this app because they keep a log of everything- even if you delete it. A lot of people can find out your info, as they found my mothers number through AT&T, our OLD service provider. Be careful, everyone.
