Keeping your Kin safe


It is important that you have screen lock activated on your phone as Kinny remains logged in after first login. Screen Lock will keep access to your kinny app and the other information on your phone restricted to you. In the event you forget your logins you will be able to request a password reminder. Kinny utilises sms verification and is linked to your mobile number.


Kinny has two wallets the App Wallet and Tip Wallet, Kin earned in the app is paid into the App Wallet, you can transfer this Kin into the Tip Wallet to use for tipping or transferring over social media. Only the Kinny Tip Wallet has inherent backup designed into it, at the moment if you uninstall, delete the app data, try to set up a second device or change devices you will lose access to the Kin in your App Wallet. Kinny advises all users to transfer any Kin in the Kinny App wallet into the Kinny Tip wallet as this is the safest way to store your Kin. Transfers are made in the Kinny app with a couple clicks. A backup solution for the Kin App Wallet is being developed for future release by the Kin Foundation.



Where does the money come from?


Theres nothing for free right? So how can Kinny pay you Kin? Well you are valuable, your thoughts, opinions and time have value. There is a reason that the big social networking sites are worth eye watering amounts of money, its because they sell your information, your tastes, and your preferences to advertisers and corporations. Kinny facilitates surveys that you choose to engage with on your terms. The non-identifying information and attention you provide is paid for by advertisers. This pays for the Kin that Kinny pays on to you immediately after you have completed an earn opportunity.



iOS device users


We know it’s dissapointing that Kinny is only on Android for now but rest assured Kinny is on the case. Kinny for iOS is in development and will be released as soon as possible. Until the iOS app is ready you can still use Kinny to tip and recieve tips on social media. As you can only earn Kin in the Kinny app a member of the awesome Kinny community will need to tip you some of their hard earned Kin to get you started. Drop Kinny a hi on social media using #kinnytipme and the Kinny team or the community will get you started.
