"kin2kin has been brilliant. It's great to have all the family in one private place. We used to use text messages and emails, but that was not organised like kin2kin."
~ Grandfather of 7

“I love that there is little hesitation with posting on kin2kin. My anti-social media father (60) was straight on kin2kin and getting his private feedback is great. My 2 yr old son will have a whole bunch of memories and connections he can look back at”
~ Expat mum

"We are excited by the way the kin2kin product can connect families and social groups whilst managing the risks that exist around online connections."
~ CEO Netsafe

~ Mother of 3

JMBz ,

Brilliant family photo sharing app!

We started using this when our daughter was born and it has been absolutely brilliant at keeping her distant family close and part of her journey as she grows. So wonderful to be able to share precious family moment without worrying about who might see them - you know it’s only for your family’s eyes :)

Hi JMBz!

Thanks so much for the awesome review. We are so pleased to be a part of your daughter's beautiful journey. Here's a hot little tip, try favouriting a photo by pressing the star button on the bottom of the photo. Your favourites go into a special album that makes it easy to revisit and print right in the app! Happy kin-ing ;)

The family app we were waiting for

Awesome app for safe family communication and sharing
Just love how it offers a safe environment to teach our kids about appropriate social media use
But also that is connects us with our extended family more often
Get this app if you have kids

Hi nashy909,
