People are having trouble about privacy and security in using their mobile apps these past few days. This is because of the recent news about Facebook’s misuse of their users data.
It is both scary and hard to be in social media right now. No one knows if your data is being used by someone. Recent reports confirmed that other messaging apps are reading user’s personal and private chats for unknown reasons. Good news for us because Viber released reasons why they are the most secured messaging app in the market.

1. Viber can’t read or listen to any of your chats and calls
Unlike other messaging apps, Viber simply can’t read your personal chats – including one-on-one chats, group chats, audio and video calls. We can’t access your messages since we use end-to-end encryption by default. This means that all your private and group communications are completely encrypted so that only you and the people you’re talking to can read or hear them.
2. Delete messages you regret sending at anytime
Viber lets you delete any type of message you’ve sent, not only for yourself but most importantly for everyone in your chat, giving you the control if you regret sharing anything. You can delete them at any time, be it a few seconds or even years later.
Viber was the first global messaging app to introduce delete messages feature over two and a half years ago. Since then, the feature has been used over 5 billion times!
3. Send messages that automatically disappear with Secret Chats
While Viber’s end-to-end encryption by default gives users peace of mind, certain messages require an added sense of privacy. Sometimes you share sensitive information or pictures in your chats that you’d prefer would disappear automatically from the other person’s phone once they’ve seen it.
Secret Chats lets you set a self-destruct timer for every message in your conversation so that after your message is read, it’s automatically deleted from their phone. If you wanted to share your credit card information, for example, sending it over a Secret Chat would be the ideal solution.
4. Hide sensitive chats from your chat list with Hidden Chats
Hidden Chats lets you keep whatever chats you choose separate from your main chat list, so that it is not shown in your regular chat list. You can access Hidden Chats only with a PIN that you set.
When it comes to the privacy of your personal conversations data, make sure your messages and calls are made on a messaging app that gives you 360° security and privacy measures. Being the only global messaging app to offer the four features above, you can rest assured that Viber is the most secure messaging app around.
