Although there is a great number of people who have used WhatsApp and Facebook as their main communication medium, Viber also has a large user base thanks to all the features it provides. If you have been using Viber for some time, you are likely used to using its features to stay in touch with your friends and families.

Like other instant messaging apps, Viber also offers you the option to backup your messages on your device. While that is a really good feature as it lets you save a copy of your messages, some users would rather prefer backing up their Viber messages to a PC. If you are one of those users and you would like to copy your Viber messages to your PC, this guide should teach you how to do that.

There are multiple methods to do the task and you may choose any method that you think is convenient for you.

Let’s get started:

Backup Viber Messages to PC Using Email

If you would prefer using the built-in options on your device to backup your Viber messages to your PC, you may use the export chat history option to have your messages exported as a backup to your PC via an email.

Basically, what you are going to do is you are going to create a backup of your Viber messages and then you will email it to your own email address. It is as simple as that and the following is how you do it on your device.

Step 1. Launch the Viber app on your device and tap on More followed by Settings to launch the Viber settings menu on your device.
