    The photos and videos that I have sent via Kik used to save to their own folder in my gallery. Since I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app, this feature does not happen. where are these photos going?

    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Apps, select kik, then Permissions. Does it have Storage permission turned on?

    This is also happening to me. I have been into settings and the storage is turned on. Where are my pictures going?

    Welcome to Android Central! Using a file manager app, look through the various directories on your phone to see if you can find the directory Kik uses. Start with the /Pictures directory, but it might also be a subdirectory of /Android/data.

    Thanks I have tried your suggestions and I still can't find them any other ideas? I use kik in a secure folder app, if that makes a difference. I have looked in it's directories too. Where are the pics going?

    Are you manually saving these image files to the phone? In other words, when you receive a picture from someone in Kik, are you selecting that image and then tapping Save/Download?

    If they're in a secure directory, you won't see them, because even the filenames are encrypted. Change kik for a time to save to a plain directory, have it save a few pictures and see if you can find them. (Then set it back to the secure directory if you need that.)
