With a username instead of a phone number, you dont automatically share personal information with others — your chat companions on Kik can only see your display name, username, and profile picture. They cant see your email address, phone number, or birthday, though within a Kik group, everyone can see your username.

Why does Kik need my phone number?
It is not required, but the app pushes users to enter their phone number so that they can match users to other Kik users based on phone contacts. For Android users, your phone number is automatically uploaded to Kik when you register, it will not give you the option to decline on entering your number.
