Now you must be thinking that this was not logout but resetting Kik. No, actually this reset button serves as a sign out button. There must have been some mistake made while developing or due to some other reason they didn’t name it logout. Otherwise this option should have been named sign out by the developers. This little thing put people in a lot of confusion and we’re glad that we were able to figure this out.

Doing this logs you out of Kik and then again you can login by entering your credentials. If you are losing your chats and conversations while logging out by this procedure which you will, then download Backup and Reset app from Google play store and then you can back up your chats before logging out.
