What is Viber Messenger?

Viber is a free platform for voice, video, and text messaging, connecting users through either WiFi or mobile networks. Viber requires either a mobile number or linked Facebook profile for account creation and verification.

Users can create group chats and send pictures, video, audio recordings, and other media to Viber users anywhere in the world. When opening an account, the app will pull information from the user’s device to let them know of any contacts already using the platform. 

Users can place calls to non-users and landlines, but must purchase credits to do so. 

Is Viber Messenger safe for my kids?

Viber is safe for mature teens. Viber is a messaging app, so the users and those they interact with control the content.

One feature to keep an eye on is ‘Public Chat.’ Viber offers a platform to engage on topic-centered public conversations, similar to Facebook celebrity pages. This public forum is more appropriate for older users, as the content is unpredictable. 

The app also has a catalog of stickers and emojis, some include crude humor and profanity, but most are innocent and playful. Parents should be aware that Viber requires either a mobile number or linked Facebook profile for account creation and verification.

Parents should note that calls are only free to other registered Viber users, and that calls to non-users require the purchase of credits. Viber also offers an extended range of stickers for an additional fee.
