Viber adds privacy boost

Rakuten Viber, one of the world’s leading apps for free and easy communication, announces the upcoming launch of the “disappearing messages” feature to all chats. Previously a feature only available in secret chats, soon, any user will be able to set a timer for sending text, photo, video or other types of files for a few seconds, minutes, hours or even days.

An automatic countdown to the deletion of the content will be started immediately after the recipient sees the sent message. The impact of disappearing messages in any 1x1 chats strengthens Viber’s position as the world’s most secure messaging app.

To create a disappearing message, a user needs to, tap the clock icon on the bottom of the chat and select the disappearance period for the message and type and send a message to the recipient.

Viber has proven its commitment to privacy over the years. In a series of firsts in the messaging app space, Viber released a “delete message” feature for all chats in 2015, default end-to-end encryption in 2016 and hidden & secret chats in 2017.

As part of its ongoing commitment to privacy, Viber is announcing the launch of disappearing messages in regular chats.
