Signing in to your Viber account by phone number

Rakuten Viber is a popular messenger with the familiar purple handset icon. It allows you to make calls (voice or video) and send messages using Internet traffic. The app is free to use, except for one optional paid feature called Viber Out for making calls to landlines.

To use the application, you need to register or sign in to your account. We will tell you how to do it most conveniently and easily from any device from which you want to use it.

Options for signing in to your Viber account

Viber is a multiplatform application, and there are versions for both mobile devices and PCs.

Accordingly, there are several ways to sign in to your Viber page: by phone number, via a mobile app or a PC version of the messenger.

By phone number

When you sign up with Viber, the application will ask you to specify your actual phone number, country of residence, and send a verification code by number. You will also be able to set a password for your account and subsequently log in to the page using your phone number and password.

If you are already a registered user, you can sign in to your Viber account using your phone number by simply entering the data you specified when registering.

Using your username and password

You can’t log in to your Viber page using your username and password. Even though you can specify a name, and you can set a password in the settings in case you want to protect your data. However, the only way to visit your personal account is to specify your phone number. This rule works for any device.

The app is tied to the SIM card with specific phone number. Now there is also an option to attach your account to a new phone number – the “change number” function in the personal account settings. This will be useful if you’ve lost your old phone or changed your number. But in any case, you will have to use phone to log in to the application. Username & password is not an option.

Authorization procedure

Let’s look at the authorization methods for specific devices. There are some differences between the desktop version and the mobile app.
