I have deleted Viber app from my phone, but my account is still shown on my friends mobiles as a Viber user.

Is it a bug? What do I have to do to remove my account from my friends mobiles?


Uninstalling the app won't deactivate your Viber ID. If you want to deactivate your Viber ID, you have to reinstall Viber and do the following procedure:

  1. Open Viber.
  2. Enter the More Options menu.
  3. Select Settings.
  4. Select Privacy .
  5. Select Deactivate Account.

When you register a Viber account, that account is directly associated with your phone number (same case with Whatsapp) If another person who has Viber installed on their phone has you in their contacts, Viber will scan the contacts (which is why it needs accessing to your contacts as a permission) crosscheck them with the database and match your number with your account.

In shorter words: You deleted Viber application, not your Viber account.

If you want to delete your account then do as following:

Viber > More Options > Settings > Privacy > Deactivate Account
