How to use two Viber accounts on iPhone?
Unlike Android devices, in iPhone two SIM card slots are rare, and this feature appeared only in the latest models, from X and above. But this does not mean that owners of Apple products are deprived of the right to sign up for two or more Viber accounts. To use two Viber profiles simultaneously and switch between them, it is not necessary to have two active sims inserted in one phone. You can insert the second SIM card into another phone for the duration of the activation, Viber rules do not prohibit this. Moreover, it is much easier to install two applications for different accounts.
What is it for
Why install two Viber on one phone? Given how quickly the Internet industry is developing, Viber becomes a working platform. Having two accounts on one phone allows you to separate your personal life from your work life. This is very convenient and does not create confusion when communicating with different users. Thus, the meaning of using the second Viber application on iPhone is as follows:
- The first account is for personal life, family, relatives and friends.
- The second account is for the work sphere and corporate life.
Keep in mind that you should have a separate cell phone number for each instance of Viber. You cannot install and use two Viber on the same phone.
Two Viber applications will be completely identical in interface. You will not notice any difference neither in functionality, nor in the set of emoticons or stickers.
