How to clear Viber on iPhone

Viber is a rather capacious application that is most often used for calling and texting. It has a number of useful options, which cannot but affect the memory of the device. For fast and smooth operation of your smartphone, it is recommended to periodically clean the system from unnecessary files, created by installed applications. Viber is no exception to this. If you regularly use the Viber app, you should definitely periodically clean your phone from garbage.

Why clear Viber

Why should you periodically clean your iPhone with residual files from Viber, as well as unnecessary messages, photos, pictures and videos? By cleaning your device from garbage or unnecessary files, you can:

  • free up your phone memory,
  • speed up your device,
  • clean gallery from unwanted media files,
  • eliminate application freezes.

It takes only a few minutes to clean your phone from unnecessary files, but you’ll notice the difference in its work. Such action should be carried out with a certain periodicity, as the caching of data occurs constantly, and until you remove the garbage, it will not go anywhere, but only will constantly accumulate.
