Viber Update Brings End-to-end Encryption And Hidden Chats

By 11:34 Sun, 01 Aug 2021 Comments

Earlier this month, WhatsApp has announced that everything you communicate through it can now be end-to-discontinue encrypted, and today one of its biggest competitors has done the same.

Viber is the app in question, and it's no small deal, this, as it currently has more than 700 million users. With the latest version (that's already available in both the iTunes App Store for iOS and the Google Play Store for Android), all of your communications are end-to-discontinue encrypted, provided all the people in a conversation have the recent Viber iteration.

Like always, end-to-discontinue encryption means no one can intercept your messages (be those one-to-one or group affairs) or calls, not even the app's maker. The rollout of this recent feature will be completed within two weeks. Once that happens, you'll see a recent padlock icon in the chat UI, which confirms everything is encrypted.

Hidden chats are now also a part of Viber. What this gives you is the option to cover certain chats with certain people from showing up in the app's main screen. You can then access your hidden chats with a PIN or by using Touch ID on your iOS device.
