What To Do: If You Want To Block Number Viber.

Block Number Viber

Viber is a great app for Android and iOS devices.  Viber is basically a messaging app that allows it’s users to send texts to other Viber users without using up their message package.

Viber messaging works by using its users network connectivity options. The Viber app allows its users to be able to send and receive messages to other Viber users if the users have network connectivity.  Using the Viber app also allows users to make calls to other Viber users by using either their Wi Fi or their 3G or 4G connectivity if they have those options.

When you use Viber, you will automatically be able to see your Viber contacts in your contacts and messaging list.  When you sign up for Viber, the Viber app immediately imports all of your contacts from your phone book.  If these contacts are already Viber users, they will get a notification that you have signed up for Viber and they will automatically be added to your Viber contact list.  You will also be notified if any of your phone contacts have signed up for Viber and they will then also be added to your Viber contacts.

Because Viber uses pre-created contacts, it’s almost impossible for you to be contacted via Viber from an unknown number.  However, some users have recently complained that they ARRE receiving calls from an unknown number and they have no way to stop it.

There has been no official response from Viber and no official way released that Viber users can use to block a number.  Blocking mode can help but this means that ALL unknown numbers will be blocked and, if a friend or other important contact tries to call you from another number, you will miss that call as well.

If you want to simply block an unknown number without resorting to blocking mode, we have a method you can use.

How To Block Number Viber:

  1. First, you need to open Contacts or Call Logs in Viber.
  2. Tap and keep pressing down on the number you want blocked.
  3. You should see the option to Delete or block this number appear. Select this option.

This method will work both on an Android device and on an iOS device.
