Kik introduces a new live streaming feature where users can go live just like on the Bigo app. You can share your personal life moment or meet new people through the streaming process. In addition, you can also watch other users streaming videos.
But sometimes you can also see people doing unusual activities on the live video which can be inappropriate for some users.
Most of the time, Kik automatically filters out those streaming to make a clean environment for every user. But still, people won’t stop making those streaming videos.
To prevent from seeing those unusual streaming in the future you can either report their live video or block them for good.
So, today you will learn to report users on Kik live streaming app with the help of few simple steps.
What is Kik Live and How Does It Work?
Kik live is a streaming feature that you can use to live stream on Kik. In other words, if you are bored of chatting with friends then you can start your stream and talk with strangers.
When you go live then anyone can join your stream for free. But you have to be popular to get the attention of tons of visitors. If nobody knows you expect your friends then it will be difficult for you to gain viewers in your live.
Once you are live then people can send you a gift, diamonds, or rewards if they like your stream. From those gifts, you can earn real money by converting them.
Besides, if you want to get famous then you have to complete the given task by Kik. After reaching a certain level from “New Babie” it will help you to reach the leaderboard and place your profile on the “Popular” section.
How to Report Someone on Kik Live Stream?
To report people on Kik live stream you have to first join their streaming video. You can’t simply find the user which you want to report outside the stream.
Once you find a person to whom you want to report or the live they are making then either go to their profile or simply choose the “Report” option.
But remember, Kik won’t suddenly remove or stop their streaming video after your report. First, it will examine whether the live is violating their policy or not.
If the user’s live stream comes under the terms and policy of Kik then they will take action of the account which you’ve just reported.
However, if a person is not violating any rules and making a clean video following the Kik policy then reporting their account won’t cause any harm to them.
Even though you report someone live stream that has a clean feed multiple times just for fun or other reason then it is just a waste of time.
So, don’t unnecessarily report people on Kik. If you don’t like to see them in front on your Kik Live section then simply block the user.
Now, let’s see the step-by-step process to get rid of someone from Kik’s live stream.
Step 1: Open Kik Messenger
But if you are using Kik messenger after a long time then you may have to log in to your account.
Step 2: Tap on Live option
After accessing your Kik account then you will see a Live button from the bottom right corner of the screen. It is the place where you can watch or join all the live streaming videos of every Kik user in one place. In addition, you can also go live on Kik at the same time.
So, to report someone on Kik live stream, simply tap on the “Live” TV icon and move to the next process.
Step 3: Select a Users Profile
Once you are on the Kik live streaming section, here you can join or watch all streaming videos of different categories such as Trending, New, Favorites, and Leaderboards.
So, find a user whose stream you want to report. Simply scroll down and locate the user profile.
If you can’t find the right user then you can also search by their Kik name or Live stream description from the upper left corner search bar. More, you can also use the Tag which a person might be using on the stream.
But remember the time you are searching for a person’s streaming video; they might already end their live. So, once a stream is finished then you can’t report the live video unless you want to report their profile on Kik.
Therefore, choose the right time and act quickly before you failed your mission.
Step 4: Tap on Report Sign
Now, after selecting a person’s profile and joining their live, simply tap on the “exclamation sign” error from the upper right corner next to the “X” icon.
After that, it will ask you one last time whether you want to report users or not. This is actually a confirmation process because most of the time users accidentally tap on the report of the live stream which they are watching.
So, if you accidentally report a user on Kik live stream then it will be inappropriate.
Step 5: Tap on Report
Finally, if are sure to remove the live stream of a person you don’t like then tap on the “Report” button.
Now, Kik will review your report and will determine whether to remove that person or prevent them from creating another new Livestream.
What Happen After You Report Someone on Kik Live Stream?
Have you ever reported someone’s telecast video on Kik and wondered what will happen next?
Well, when you report a user’s Kik streaming video then Kik will receive a message of your report. After that, they will start to review the whole live stream from the beginning to find out the error or mistakes a person has made while streaming.
If Kik finds any mistake that violates their terms and policy then it will first send a warning message to a person. It won’t simply remove or stop the streaming suddenly right after you make a report.
But if lots of users start to report a live stream of a person then Kik will delete that video for good to make a safe and clean place for every user.
On the other, it’s not as simple to remove someone’s Livestream video after reporting. That’s because Kik already has tons of bots that filter out user Livestream every second. If there is any misleading, abusive or nudity, or other words in a live then it will automatically ban a user for good.
So, when you report a person then it may take a longer time to see a result.
Do Users Know When You Report Their Profile on Kik Live Stream?
No, when you report someone’s account or Livestream then a person will never know that you want to take out their Livestream.
Kik will first check the full issue behind the reporting. If the report is not valid and the user didn’t break any policy or terms of Kik then it will not harm their account.
However, if a report is positive then Kik will either ban or remove a person’s Livestream. AT that time, they will let a person know that your video is removed because of a report or someone has reported your live.
So, if you frequently do a stream on Kik to meet new people and share good information then you don’t have to worry about the report thing. It will not affect your account at any cost even though someone reports your account or live.
But don’t break the rules and policy of Kik at all. It will not only remove your content but will permanently ban your Kik account.
How Many Times Do You Have to Report Someone’s Livestream on Kik to Delete their Content?
It doesn’t matter how many times you report a user’s Livestream to delete their content.
When you report for the first time then Kik will already know that you’ve reported someone streaming video. It will start to check the Livestream from the time when you submit a report.
So, if a person didn’t have violated any rules or policy then reporting multiple times won’t affect a person streaming. In fact, it’s just a waste of your time.
Therefore, don’t report over and over again thinking about Kik will take action of that user account.
