Data: 18-Feb-2019 Editor: AppsToTalk

Viber is an incredibly popular tool for free communication. The application is widely used by millions of satisfied users worldwide, offering excellent service and highest quality of sound and video as well as immediate texting. Although the tool is really convenient and easy-to-use, in some cases you might need to remove it from your device. In this article, you will find a detailed instruction written by experienced professionals on how to delete Viber app from your smartphone, tablet, laptop or personal computer.

First of all, let’s find out the difference between uninstalling or deleting the app from your gadget and removing your Viber account. When you just delete the program from a certain device, you will not be able to use it only on this gadget — you will still be able to enjoy the full program’s functionality on the other devices. For example, you have the program installed on your smartphone and PC. If you delete it from your mobile, you will be able to use it on your PC. Furthermore, you can easily reinstall it on your smartphone anytime. This way, your name and basic information will be easily restored.

When you remove your app account, you will get rid of all your records from the servers. Your account information will no longer exist, so you will not have an opportunity to use the tool on any device, where it was previously installed. All your conversation history will also be deleted. You will no longer appear in your friends’ contact lists as a Viber user. It is also worth mentioning that all your purchases, including subscriptions, calling plans and sticker packs will be also removed. The only data that will be still stored is your backup (in case you used it) at Google Drive or iCloud.

In case you delete your account, the information about your profile will remain active for three months before its permanent removal.
