    Fawkes The Phoenix


    Edited: My ban finally got lifted after a few days and now I can use the app. But, I'm still being very careful when using it and refrain from joining different chats or adding too much friends because it seems like this app loves banning people. Maybe they should fix it or something. Anyway, everything is going fine so far. (Previous review: I got banned again without even doing anything! I'm starting to hate this app. Seriously, I felt like I'm being banned everyday! You should fix this issue)

  2. Youna Son-avatar

    download I don't know why other people get banned but if you do, your phone or device might be different. My phone is a new phone that was released last year. You have to keep updating the app for better use or bugs may appear or get banned for no reason. This is a korean app for texting and usually, all koreans use this app to contact one another. May not work well when you are not korean because when you log in or sign up, you always have a chat group with the developer but you can't chat back to him/her. They usually write in korean and sometimes tell you stuff you need to know or sometimes it's a just a sponser.

  3. YoungOak Larsen-avatar

    YoungOak Larsen


    apk Better than any other text messaging app; you can tell whether the receiver read or not; can leave voice messages when cannot type, excellent; can send photos without limitations; it pkg it together when choosing many pics from gallery; you can call free from anywhere, globally! i just love kakaotalk!!! Everyone should use it. Compared to kakao, all other massaging apps sucks!!! Believe me!!!

  4. Saieasha Jae-avatar

    Its nice. But my problem is. I login 2 different accounts with 1 number only. Now. My other phone cant log in. Because when i tried to send a verification code through my number it wont send. I really need to open it because there are inportant message i have there. But now i cant open it .i try unregistering the other account but it wont unregister so I uninstall it because i though it would automatically log out. But i was wrong. Now i tried to log it on again. But im having trouble loging in.

  5. Pi Kim-avatar

    The application features are great. I signed up and unfortunately got banned from the Open Chat immediately after signing up. I tried to unregister my account after a week or two and it says that I violated the operation policies. I haven't even used it yet. If you could please fix the problem as soon as possible. Thank you.

  6. Alliah Suiza-avatar

    Downloaded this literally a few hours ago and i got banned immediately. I haven't even done anything with the app yet then i check the details why i got banned. There are a lot of reasons and its included there that you can be banned if you use foreign phone numbers with no info on the carrier. Its annoying, really. I cant log in my account in my other phone. I dont even get why i was banned.

  7. Raisha Atia-avatar

    My account was fine. I didn't open it for 3 days and when I opened it after 3 days it says that I've been banned to use the open chat option. Whereas I didn't even do anything. The same thing happened to me last year also. This is just waste of time. Do they even know what invading privacy is? I didn't even do anything but yet they banned me.

  8. purple_x_kth-avatar

    I've been using this for several months, and it's good! Sometimes it shows that you are banned but after some time, it's removed. I give 4 stars, i'm just wishing that maybe the sms feature can have theme choices also. I hope the maker of this considers my recommendation.

  9. Johnny xx-avatar

    Verified my mail and phone number I use for every other service with no problem and then got literally instantly banned after joining one group chat. A message saying I was banned spams me all the time while in that chat. Support is useless and sending an automated response saying the same as the message in chat and that I will be unbanned if abnormal use stops. It's been more than 2 weeks now and I have done nothing apart from joining one chat; I'm still banned. Worst service I have ever used.

  10. Sharifah NurZahirah-avatar

    Sharifah NurZahirah


    I hate this app 'cause i can't join the open chat and it's always say.."you can't join the open chat in short time" or something else.It's so annoying!!!when my sis play this app,i saw it's just fine because she is using IPHONE??Wth! It's unfair!

  11. Jonathan Schuler-avatar

    Jonathan Schuler


    If you loose your mobile number you are fu*** The app is good but the service is HORRIBLE!! The contact formular is hidden on their website. Only email, no chat. You cannot even reply to the email they send you. I have my email, my old old number, the contract (but handwritten) I know everything about my account (last chats &friends) they could ask my friends (Like Wechat to send them a code to restore the account) but they just dont want to do it. I feel that their english is not good as well

    sahasra _loveyourself


    The app looks really cool! But the second day of my download, I was banned for using open chat because I violated some rules. How can I violent a rule without even using the app. I just downloaded it and keep it so that later I could try it.

  13. Lucia Na-avatar

    I've been using this app for 1 year and months I guess, this is the first time K can't access my account. I thought my friends aren't just texting me but no, I can't receive messaged because I'm banned since I don't know when. Please fix this. There's a person there who's waiting for me (maybe).. Thank you. Edit: I can't open my account now. Lol kakaotalk what is this?

  14. Sarah i-avatar

    I can't insert GIFs anymore (says: 'kakaotalk doesn't support image insertion here'). How greedy can kakaotalk get? Correct that!! - please make it possible to access our gallery offline from chat without using mobile data - chat backup just for few days. please make it longer (wish it was unlimited) - media won't play anymore after a while!!

  15. Milla Maxwell-avatar

    It's a good app, I specifically like that you can customize your profile and the look of the app. However I would wish for an option to just use the default phone ringtone. I change my ringtone from time to time and it is a little annoying to always additionally change it on KaTalk too. Other than that great!

  16. First Last-avatar

    Right after I registered in the application I got the following message "You are temporarily banned from using Open Chat kakaotalk due to violation of our operation policy". Right on the first run of the application! I contacted the support for the explanation. They provided me with the list of cases that constitute abnormal or suspicious activities but none of them fits my case.

  17. July M-avatar

    i honestly like this app but recently i got really terrible error when i call someone it suddenly stops. and it says unstable connection i have good internet connection thoㅜㅜㅜㅜ i've been using this app for years and it gets terrible.. please fix this please pleaseee i need to continue using this..

  18. Anne Michelle-avatar

    I tried joining an open chat for the first time. It worked, it said that I entered the group chat but it automatically banned me from using open chat 'cause I violated the rules etc. I didn't even do anything yet. Why?

  19. angelsarereall l-avatar

    angelsarereall l


    Really hate this all this is too much..I even can't send messages even though I have good internet connection. I really hate this app, this app all do is wastes your time I recommend others too not download this all, all it does is wastes data and time I even got banned for the first time while running this app.. This app is a total disaster I can't even join group chats this app is really total disaster....... It's the worst app it always stops... Ughhhhh....... Really hate this app

  20. Sequoia Turner-avatar

    I used this app all the time, it was my main way to talk to my older sister, but I reset my phone and now the app is saying it can't send me a verification code via text message to my number and to check the website. I did check the website and it was no help at all, I can't use the app anymore :(

  21. gu asdf-avatar

    I don't understand why messages take so long to get sent. I have opened the app just to realize the app never sent the messages. You can't change call ring tone and the voice call quality is really bad.

  22. Jolene Gray-avatar

    It temporary baned me from open chat and it has been like that for weeks. I have done nothing to violate the operation policy. I have googled the situation but a lot of people are getting the same thing. I am starting to think their is a bug in the app that needs to be fixed.

  23. What-avatar

    I installed it a few hours ago. I had fun with the app and it is also visually pleasing. I recommended it to some of my friends and they told me that as soon as they registered, it said that they are banned when they didn't even do anything that was against the policy of this app. I used my account a little more and later found my self banned as well. I didn't even do anything wrong and barely talked to my friends as well. Hoping that I would get some assistance.

  24. Giannis Kosmidis-avatar

    Giannis Kosmidis


    Don't even try using it... Once you registered you're going to get banned(for no reason at all) and even after giving your private informations and want to unregister the app its not going to let you unregister because of the ban(which is REALLY stupid) looks like a huge scam!

  25. Stephanie McCutcheon-avatar

    Stephanie McCutcheon


    Cannot get this app to work. From day one it has told me my account has been temporarily disabled. Tried deleting my account to start over. Only way to delete the account is to unlink it from kakaotalk in the app. But i cant get in the app. No option to get help online. So frustrating!!

  26. aina syaza-avatar

    i just started using and everything is good so far but i cant change the font. in the settings it only allows me to change the font size, not the font itself.

  27. Hatim Abdul Rahman-avatar

    When i started making an account on kakao, it suddenly says that i was banned because of violating the operation policy. I have read the operation policy and none of it makes sense on why i was banned. I was just registering. Also it says that it will send a message on when the ban will be lifted but so far, to this day, no message have been sent. Not worth my time.

  28. Razeen Francis-avatar

    Very disappointed in this app,ab Ive read numerous people having the same issue I got banned for absolutely no reason from one open group chat,I use the app for nothing else.And there hasnt been any feedback from the app developer.Pathethic

    This is the most stupid app I have ever used. I can't log out my account on my phone. It doesn't force to enter an email while registering an account. So, I only used my phone number. But I couldn't log in with only phone number after that. Now, I still can't log in to delete the registered account.

  30. Yin W-avatar

    Sent messages to friends this morning but no one has replied. Its showing that they haven't even read what i sent. Kakao is showing some sort of problem, so i updated to latest version. Now i can't send any messages or images. What is going on! Please fix!!

    I downloaded this app to communicate as requested by my game clan. Within 24 hours, I was banned from chatting by devs. I've been waiting over a week to find out why from devs...and all possible listed reasons were nothing I could do within 24 hours, and the ban "usually lasts a few weeks." Wouldn't recommend. Best I can tell, I got banned because I am an American. (It happened to a few other players too, and only the American ones.🤦‍♀️) Just no.

  32. Jason-avatar

    Not sure if you guys have changed the maximum file size to send but I used to be able to send 300mb video files.. Now I can only send 20mb.. Can you please reply and let me know, this is hugely disappointing if you have done this. Stop taking away features. I now can no longer save important recordings to my device. I will change star rating once you stop doing this. It's getting very annoying.

  33. Mira Nad-avatar

    I would give 5 stars if it wasn't suck at some features.. Seriously when I made an open chat profile and want to post something a message tells me this is not supported in your region.. Can you please solve this problem i'm from Morocco it would be great if other region be included in your app

  34. Iulia Vitruc-avatar

    it's very uncomfortable that on this app it's not shown when people were online the last time or if they're online. the creators of kkt, please introduce this function!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! because it creates a lot of misunderstandings.

  35. Neha-avatar

    ....i used for a day or two ... but didn't find interesting so tried to delete my account and for that i need to unregister but they just won't let me saying operational policy violation....i don't understand which policy...i didn't even use it

  36. Meabh Hayes-avatar

    I love this app but I wish I could reply to messages easier instead of pressing on the message. It's really annoying. And also to be able to see if the person is typing or not and if the messages moved smoother. They're very jumpy.

  37. G.Eua.E. Gaudi-avatar

    I have created an account but couldn't log in because it keeps on telling me that my password or email address is not recognised, so many times I tried loging in and keeps on telling me to enter verification number which is also not accepting is there a problem with connecting. Eua Gaudi

  38. Ashley Brown-avatar

    Says temporarily banned for unauthorized use. I only use as texting during game. I got response to contact support web address that doesn't even address the problem with out any way of contacting them.

  39. Stealthmode Hu-avatar

    Does not work. 2 step auth page is not compatible with foreign phone networks. Interface for it is only in Korean. And it does not let you enter anyone to invite to chat. Unable to use. Developer contacted.

  40. Anurag Mishra-avatar

    Usually this application is very good, but as I don't know the Korean language because i am foreigner . My request is there must be an option for language converts. As wechat and other Application have this facility. It will be very easy for foreigner to use this application very easily.

    And in my opinion I can say this app is very bad because it is impossible for anyone to lock up the people you have chat room with and you are being told that they are banned without any other reason and waste chat with someone I am not told now why not?

  42. Raven Mori-avatar

    I clicked someone's profile picture and got banned??? You can get banned for literally anything and it's actually ridiculous. They don't even tell you the reason. When I first downloaded the app I got banned for 2weeks for with no explanation within 10m of using the app. Now I'm banned again and I have no idea why. This is just unacceptable.

  43. Rashad Aliyev-avatar

    Getting errors like "the request could not be completed", and messages not sent. I think there is some sort of memory error in the coding. Fix please. Happened for the first time today in so many years of usage.

    I can't access my gallery to change my photos or change photos ever since the update. I thought it was my phone so I did everything I could to fix it but in the end it's just this app. Really loved this app before.

  45. 아릭스-avatar

    Please fix the application. There's a lot of problems in this version. I am temporarily banned from open chat even though I didn't do anything. I will uninstall the application and will only install it again if it's already working fine.

  46. BobaTae JL-avatar

    It was good but you need to fix the fact that when people get their accounts they'll immediately get a temporary ban from open chat.

  47. Alexander-avatar

    Horrible Customer Service. If you sell or trade in your phone you can kiss your account goodbye. After three months of providing my email, driver's license, and contract cancelation they still won't let me log in. Every time I submit everything they ask for, they give some ridiculous excuse for why they can't help me and you can't reply to them. You have to submit a new ticket from scratch every time. Kakao has literally the worst customer service support I have ever seen. Avoid them if you can

  48. DuoBros-avatar

    I love it. First, its really clear but a little bit late but it does'nt change anything. Second, now i can call and play with my friends!!!!!

  49. Free Thinker-avatar

    I feel like deleting this App.... a friend recommended it to me to download so we can chat there. I downloaded it just today and added my friend. I tried sending a message and all I got was, " you gave been blocked from using this App bla bla bla due to bla bla bla...... what kind of App is this? I didn't add someone I don't know. The person I added was the same person who recommended the app for me and she also gave me her id to add her. I will not rate until I'm able to chat with my friend

  50. salif shaikh-avatar

    Why this app always says " you are temporarily banned from open chat" whenever I join a open chat room.I haven't done anything to violet it's operations. Fix this as soon as possible. Too much bugs and where's the dark mode for pc version ?

    WHY CAN'T I LOG IN TO MY ACCOUNT WITH MY PHONE NUMBER????? I DON'T ACCEPT THE VERIF CODE WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS APP???? LAST TIME I USED IT, I CAN LOG IN EASILY BUT NOW IT'S HARD TO LOG IN. WHYYYYYYY???????????????????????????????????????????????????????!!?????????!!??!!!???????????????????????????

  52. Terry Nolan-avatar

    Good app but too hard to transfer to new devices....I kept my old phone after upgrading simply because I don't want to lose my contacts and data when I go to my new phone.

  53. Kristin Vöge-avatar

    Really? Unusable? I had this app for like 2 minutes and I wanted to join an open chat... I got banned from all servers because apparently I violated their open policy? I just created my profile, what did I do wrong?

  54. FOUAD NFISSI-avatar

    It's good application but still slow when you want to copy and when you want to open it.

  55. Yoelyn Barrera-avatar

    The app its pretty good to interact and exchange the language and knowledge culture, but it keeps banning me for no reason at all even if I'm only reading the messages.

  56. Jeff Spencer-avatar

    Phone reset and all the other apps like wechat amd line I could get my account back. Kakao it is nearly impossible without the old phone number on my account and being physically in korea. What is the point of the email account if the phone number is all that matters.

  57. Syra Nicole-avatar

    It's a very useful app. But it's cooler if it's a have floating message or something. I hate it when I'm watching videos and I need to exit the app just to read the message.

  58. Jonathan Park-avatar

    With the new update there must be a glitch because when I click on a previous video call I made, it used to make video calls again but now it makes regular voice calls. Please fix this issue

  59. Jessie Lewis-avatar

    It keeps saying Unstable Network Connection error message even though I'm on excellent home wifi and have been on this network in the past. It says the same when I switch to mobile data. What's wrong?

  60. adah uyi-avatar

    The issue am having with this app ,is that i cannot change my phone number on my Pc,the number i used in registering this app has got lost,but i cant change the number on my pc.you guys should work on it.

  61. Kimin-avatar

    Why is my account disabled....I just downloaded this app, I just went into my first group chat said hi then left to find a new group after awhile. And now my account is disabled, ummm what did I do? .... please fix this and stop ticking me off because this makes no sense!

  62. Bem Bem-avatar

    Never got to use the app. All I did was try to join a group chat of my favourite band but immediately got banned. Take note that this was a few minutes after signing up. I tried sending an email but didn't get anywhere. UNINSTALLED

    Cannot get access to my Kakao account after reinstalling the app. My phone number has changed, I remember the previous Korean one I used but kakao says it's wrong! My account is disabled now and I cannot reset the password because of the phone number...Can you help me, please?

  64. Sy s-avatar

    All the features are good yet something is missing. There should be videocall function in group chat. There is the button for videocall in group chat but is unable to use. If anyone knows please tell me why

  65. Belle Alegro-avatar

    I was using kakao for a long time, suddenly forgot my password and just recently recovered my account and the first thing I did was to send a message to my international friend whom I haven't talked to for the last 8 months only to find out that I can't send a chat with him because I haven't chat with him before? It doesn't make sense, he's on my contact list and I'm also in his but I can't even send him a message.

  66. Shimrit Segal-avatar

    I can't save pics/vids from group chats, it says that it's saved but didn't show up on my gallery. And my kakaotalk app is updated. Please fix this problem, thank you.

  67. Shine SR-avatar

    It's really worst application It's not working I wasn't able to call someone so i loged out and now I'm trying log in again but it's not letting me in Most my friends are connected to me through it if i can't log in I'll lose their contact Fix it right away 😡

  68. Farjana Reya-avatar

    I registered in this app yesterday and it has bann me for 2 time within 2 days while I hadn't done anything that's very annoying but it's good to talk with others but when it's get stuck that's quite annoying

  69. Hyunra Park-avatar

    I would like to give 5 stars but cancel it when I suddenly got banned for no reason. Like how.. I just introduced myself in a polite way, and suddenly got a noticed that I was banned and couldn't join any open chat

  70. ASO SUNNY-avatar

    I get blocked for nothing and blocked for sending messages even when friends give me their ID... Sorry I almost gave three star but changed my mind so two suit this app..

  71. Paul Choi-avatar

    What a piece of junk. What are you updating that breaks the fundamental function of the app? This is a messaging app, no? What is the point if recipients aren't notified when messages come through? Mind boggling how incompetent a group of people who should know better really are.

  72. Leann Hill-avatar

    I really want to use this app but I tried to get in a group chat with my friends and it automatically banned me from chatting in it. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, but it said my account was disabled. Please fix this, I want to chat with my friends.

  73. Daniel Lee-avatar

    Replying directly from notification seems to be broken intermittently. This started to be an issue several months ago. Note 8 user

  74. Chams Park-avatar

    I might give this a better review if the previous messages won't be deleted if you uninstall this app and reinstall it like duh the reason you have an account is to save infos files and messages right? i really don't know anymore kinda disappointing 😒

  75. Dewiq Dewiq-avatar

    My account was disabled, it's works before and suddenly you disabled my acc without email warning or else and now I can't login, rubish!!

  76. maima linzy-avatar

    So, i don't know what i did wrong. I created an ID and tried to send my friend a message. Apparently, it didn't let me. Then, when i was trying to reply to my friend's message, it temporarily banned me from sending messages and opening messages. Like what the hell, bro!

    Always giving me "you're temporarily banned" message even if you're not doing anything. How is this gonna be useful if that's the case

  84. Juu-avatar

    Just downloaded the app yesterday and today i am banned from open chat and i did absolutely nothing. What are the operation policies, i want to know if "doing nothing" is included because that's what I'm absolutely did, NOTHING. I can't wait to receive a message informing me when the ban will be lifted, i'm deleting the app. What a waste of time. 😒😒😒😒😒

  85. Jocelyn Abecia-avatar

    I love this app. Coolest, funniest and cutest emojis around. Makes it easy to stay in contact with family. I love the layout and group chat.

  88. Peter-avatar

    Too many adverts. Group feature deleted. App is too bloated. Childish design, poor UI. Too many permissions unexplained. Far behind Telegram.

  89. Diana-avatar

    Please add an option of deleting messages for both sides even after reading like in an open chat at least..

  90. Nabilla Kusuma-avatar

    I just uninstalled the app because i changed phone's, then i install again on the other phone. And then when i tried to log in, my account was disabled for no reason🤷‍♀
