Is it possible to recover deleted messages on Viber?

iPhones are very demanding devices, and the general rules of popular applications do not always apply to them. However, if you deliberately or accidentally deleted some information in the application, you can restore it. But only on one condition, if you have previously correctly configured creating backups. If not, you won’t be able to recover messages that you deleted in any way.

Recovery options

If you have deleted an entire chat or several messages and now want to restore them, there are three recovery options for iPhones: using Viber, iTunes or iCloud. Read each method carefully and strictly follow the instructions.

  • Choose “Account” and then “Viber Backup”.

This method also works when you delete Viber and reinstall it later, or when you install Viber on another device and want to restore your chat history.

Choose how often you want an auto backup to be performed (daily, weekly or monthly), and select if you want your photos and videos to also be backed up.

From iTunes backup

The next way to recover lost or deleted messages is to use iTunes. This software is downloaded to a computer and is a link for the two devices (PC and phone). Among other things, you can save the data from your phone to iTunes.
