With Viber for iOS, users can make free video chat, free calls, and send free text messages from their iDevice to other Viber users through Wi-Fi or 4G on any device, in any country or network. Unlike WhatsApp that needs Wi-Fi as well as local mobile service, Viber requires only a Wi-Fi connection to make free calls to any of Viber users. That’s why it has become more and more popular all over the world.

There is no doubt that some Viber conversations contain crucial information that can be lost due to accidental deletion, iOS updating, jailbreaking, etc. Thus, as a Viber user, it is important for you to backup and restore Viber messages on iPhone.

Plus, Viber messages aren’t saved automatically. If you switch to a new device, then you will not have your old conversations automatically restored when you reinstall the Viber again on a new device. Thus, backing up your social messages on a regular basis is a good thing to do as you can easily restore to a new phone. If you don’t know how to backup and restore Viber, then you are in the right place. In this post, we will introduce you a complete guide to backup and restore messages.
