No, it is not OK to have a KIK.

First of all, Parents are denied access towards parental controls in the texting app, simply because there exist none. IN addition, the app barely provides proper security, as it does not ask for an email verification, or any age verification of some sort. More so, any stranger is able to access someone's user name, and it has been reported that many children are exposed to bad messages sent by malevolent adults. Of course, one might argue, that a responsible teen will be able to handle this app. But, even if the teen is blameless(something very rare) alien users still possess the ability to send very inappropriate messages using the user name search directory. The app also is very poorly coded, making it easy for even low hacking methods to seep through and retrieve personal data.

In conclusion, although it is okay for people to use social media, KIK is a very poor example of one, due to its poor coding, set up, and security, and therefore should not be used.
