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:
