How To Hide Your Chats In Viber

Do you want to add some extra privacy to some of your chats on Viber? Do you want to protect them with a PIN while hiding the conversation from your chat list? In any case, you can hide your chats on Viber. Follow our quick guide below, and we’ll show you how to do so.


When you start a conversation with a group or an individual on Viber, the chat will appear and remain on your chat list. In this way, you can easily come back to continue your conversations or check the chat history from any device.

However, we understand that there are conversations that you may want to keep private and secure. If you have one, you can hide the conversation from your chat list while protecting it with a PIN.

Hiding a chat deletes its chat history from other devices, and anyone won’t be able to view its contents without the PIN. Aside from that, resetting the PIN automatically deletes the chat history for privacy reasons.

Here’s our guide about hiding your chats on Viber.

How to hide some of your chats on Viber

If you want to make some of your chats on Viber more private, you can hide them from your chats list. Hidden chats are only accessible using the search bar and compose option, and you can use a PIN to protect them.

You can hide your chats from the Viber mobile app. In our tutorial below, we’ll show you every step to do so.

On your phone:

  1. Launch Viber on your device and sign in to your account.
  2. Go to the Chats tab and open one of your conversations.
  3. Tap More options (three dots icon) on the conversation header and select “Chat info” from the menu.

  4. Select the “Hide this chat” option on the sidebar that appears on your screen.

  5. Tap the “Set PIN” option on the pop-up window and enter your 4-digit PIN.

  6. Re-enter your PIN to confirm your decision.

That’s how you hide your conversations on Viber. You can use this option on the group and individual chats on your account.

After setting your first PIN for hiding a chat for the first time, you won’t need to create another when you want to hide more conversations. If you ever forget your PIN, you can reset it through your Privacy Settings on the app.

You can use the compose icon on the Chats tab or the search bar to find your hidden chats by name or with their PIN. After finding a hidden conversation, you’ll need to enter your 4-digit PIN to access its contents.

Lastly, hiding a chat deletes its chat history on other devices, such as your desktop or tablet. You won’t be able to receive chat notifications and any messages sent in the chat from those devices.

To wrap things up

Now that you know how to hide chats on Viber, you can now make your important chats private and accessible only on your phone. Although you can reset the PIN you chose for your hidden chats, doing so will delete all the chat contents.
