We are aware that there are some harmful rumors going around right now.
The exploits that these rumors describe do not exist for stock Kik (Kik downloaded from App/Play store), you are only at risk if you use third party, illegitimate clients.
Whilst there are some counter-measures implemented in Ragebot (which are already active by default, so just leave it be!), they are not at all related to what is described.
We kindly ask that you refrain from sharing this rumor because it does nothing but spread misinformation and causes unnecessary fear.
Edit: apparently a clarification is needed.
This post only pertains to a specific rumor that was being mass distributed on the 28th & 29th of July.
