Discover the Secret to Disconnecting on Viber

Discover the Secret to Disconnecting on Viber

Hey there! Are you tired of constantly being bombarded with notifications and messages? Do you yearn for a break from the digital world? Well, I’ve got some good news for you. Today, I’m going to show you how to go offline on the Viber app.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “Can’t I just turn my phone off?” Well, yes, of course you can. But let’s face it, sometimes we just want to take a breather from the online frenzy without completely disconnecting from our devices. And that’s where Viber comes in handy.

So, let’s dive right in. First things first, open up the Viber app on your phone. You’ll see a bunch of tabs at the bottom of the screen. One of them says “More”. Go ahead and tap on that.

Once you’re in the “More” section, you’ll find a whole bunch of options. Scroll down until you see “Settings” and tap on it. Now, I should warn you, this is where the magic happens.

Within the “Settings” menu, you’ll find a category called “Privacy”. Tap on that and brace yourself. This is where you’ll discover the secret to going offline on Viber.

In the “Privacy” section, you’ll see a toggle switch that says “Online Status”. By default, it’s turned on, but we want to change that. So go ahead and tap on the switch to turn it off.

And just like that, my friend, you’ve achieved digital liberation. Now, whenever you feel the need to retreat from the virtual world, you can go offline on Viber and enjoy the peace and quiet. No more constant pings and distractions.

But wait, there’s more! If you want to be crafty and make it seem like you’re offline even when you’re not, you can follow one more step. Within the “Privacy” section, you’ll see another toggle switch called “Seen Status”. Turn that off as well, and your friends won’t know if you’ve read their messages or not.

So go ahead, my friend. Embrace the power of going offline on Viber. Take a break from the noise and enjoy some solitude. You deserve it.

If you’re tired of constantly being bombarded with Viber messages, even during your downtime, then you’ve come to the right place. Viber, like other messaging apps such as Facebook Messenger and WhatsApp, has a feature that tracks your online activity. This means that your contacts can see when you’re online, and you can see them too. While this feature can be useful in some situations, it can also be quite annoying. But don’t worry, I’ll show you how to hide your online status.

How to Hide Your Online Status

Are you constantly bothered by Viber messages, even when you’re trying to take a break? People may message you as soon as they see you’re active, assuming that you’re available all the time, especially if you’re connected to Wi-Fi. But when you hide your online status, you’ll appear offline to others and they’ll appear offline to you. This will allow you to reply to messages at your own pace without any pressure. Nobody will think you’re ignoring them, and you can respond when you have the time.

Here are the steps to go offline on your mobile:

  1. Open the Viber app on your phone.
  2. Tap on the “More” option in the bottom right corner of your screen.
  3. Scroll down to “Settings”.
  4. Click on “Privacy”.
  5. You’ll see “Share online status” at the top of your screen.
  6. Tap on that, and you’ll become invisible. Note that you can only change this setting once every 24 hours.

The process is the same for both iOS and Android devices. However, if you’re using Viber on a computer, you won’t have the option to hide your status, whether you’re on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

Hide Your “Seen” Status Too

While you’re at it, why not hide your “seen” status as well? Sometimes you don’t have time to respond to a long message, but the sender will know that you’ve read it. This might come across as rude, especially if the message stays “seen” for a long time. You can avoid any unpleasant situations by tapping on “Send ‘seen’ status”, which is located just below the online status in Viber’s Privacy settings.

Problem Solved?

So, you’ve followed these steps and disabled your online and “seen” status. Does that mean you’re free from constant messaging? Unfortunately, no.

There’s something you should know about Viber: it never turns off. As long as your mobile or computer is connected to a network and you’re signed in to Viber, it will continue running in the background. This means that people can still message and call you. Viber staff have officially confirmed that this is intentional.

This makes Viber a good alternative to traditional calling and texting, but it also has some downsides. Firstly, it drains your battery quickly because it uses a lot of power, even when running in the background. Secondly, you may receive messages or calls at unwanted times, such as during a meeting.

How to Ensure Viber is Offline

Here are some additional methods to gain more control over Viber:

  1. Shut it down manually – If you don’t want Viber draining your battery, you can force it to stop. The easiest way to do this is by going into your phone’s “Apps” settings, tapping on the Viber icon, and selecting “Force stop”. Viber may warn you that it might misbehave if you force stop it, but in most cases, that won’t happen.
  2. Hide notifications – Another good way to ensure you’re not disturbed is to choose which Viber notifications you receive. You can customize your notifications through the “App Info” window.
  3. Deactivate or Uninstall Viber – If none of the above methods work for you, you can always uninstall Viber by following the same path as option 1. To deactivate your account, open the app, go to options, tap on “Account”, and at the bottom, you’ll see “Deactivate account”.


Ah, finally! I’m free from those annoying notifications and messages that just won’t stop interrupting me. Now I can just sit back and enjoy the Internet without any distractions. It’s a smart move to go offline when you’re at work and really need to concentrate on the task at hand.
