Frequently Asked Questions
How do I make money with Killi?
There are two ways to make money with Killi.
- When you opt-in and share data and a brand purchases it. You are paid every time your data is purchased and not just once. You just set it and forget it and just watch the money pile up!
- Each time you answer a survey, no matter how you answer, you earn. It’s that simple!
What is the Blockchain?
The Blockchain is a digital ledger that allows any and all transactions to be recorded. The beauty of the blockchain is that it is distributed, meaning it is not stored in one central place and therefore virtually impossible to hack while also being immutable, meaning you can’t change it, which is great for ensuring trust in all transactions.

How does Killi ensure that my personal info is safe?
At Killi we actually don’t hold your data. This stays with you on your handset. If you delete the application your profile and identity are gone. This is important because as we have seen countless times with companies such as Equifax, Yahoo and others – when you store the personal data of millions of people in one central source, you are asking for trouble.
Here is more on the Equifax data breach story and what all companies need to consider moving forward.
Who pays me the money?
The buyer of your data pays you directly for your information and survey participation. The buyer of your data may include: brands, platforms or a data company. Each buyer of your data is displayed in the activity history with the wallet tab in the app.
Where is my money stored?
Your money is stored by Killi within the app until you redeem it for cash.
How do I access my money?
You can cash out once you have more than $5.00 in your account using Amazon gift card or $10.00 using PayPal. These minimum amounts are required by Amazon and PayPal. There are no fees in using Amazon, but PayPal charges you $0.32 per transaction in Canada and $0.25 in the US. We are looking to add some additional redemption options in the near future, so stay tuned!
Is there a cost for using Killi?
Killi is free of charge to the consumer but we take a small transaction fee to write the contracts, pay for transactions on the blockchain and staff the team. The percentage we currently take is 50/50, but we intend to increase the percentage going to consumers over time.
Can I review or delete my personal data from Killi if I want to?
100%. Your data is stored on your phone so you can always review it or delete it. With the exception of advertising ID and location information which are required to use the application all other data can be added or removed as you choose. In the next release for Android, we are going to make the location sharing optional so the only requirement will be advertising ID. If you want to remove all of your data as well as your profile, just delete your account and/or the application and your data will be gone. But, remember that the more you share the more you will earn!
How do I change my Email Address?
To change your email you need to ensure the following:
- Your app is updated with the current version of Killi
- You haven’t already verified your email. Once your email is verified you will not be able to change it.
(For verified email addresses, we don’t currently have the ability to change them. It is on our roadmap, if this is an issue please let us know.)
Steps to change your Email:
- Go to the Identity Screen and click on your email address
- Once on the Email Address Screen, shown below, click on the email address, your keyboard should pop-up and allow you to edit it. Once you have edited the email address click Save
How much money can I earn from Killi?
This is hard to estimate as it depends on how much information you share and how many brands are in the system buying. There is a correlation between the number of people who are using the application and the amount of money you can make. The more people, the more brands. The more brands, the more money. The initial range will be a min of $0.05 to a few bucks, but this will grow over time. As we like to say – those who drove for Uber initially didn’t make a lot of money, but once it grew, so did the payoff.
How do referrals work?
We’re glad you like the app so much you want to tell your friends and family. Good news, it is really easy. And, to make it even better we’ll pay you AND your friend with our Refer-A-Friend. Currently, we have a cap of 5 referrals per user and we pay each person $0.50 per referral.
Here’s how it works:
- Open Killi and select Refer $ Earn
- Send automatic message to friends and family

- Your friend adds the referral code into their app
- Money is added to your wallet and your friend’s wallet.
