  • From time to time, clear any inactive Viber sessions by going to Settings > Account > Desktop and Tablets.
  • If a stranger starts a conversation with you claiming to be someone you know try to ensure that they are who they claim they are before providing any information about yourself
  • Joining a group will make your phone number visible to all group members. Before joining a group we recommend you to be careful as to who might access this information
