How Can I Change My Number Without Deleting Viber?


Did you just get a new phone number? Are you considering a switch from your old phone number to a new one? Ordinarily, changing your phone number has no serious complications.

However, there are times when the process can be more complicated than usual, especially when you want to keep your Viber account. It presents the problem of finding a way to successfully change your number without having to lose your Viber. Fortunately, there’s a way to get this done. 

Today, it is a different and better story for you and all Viber users. Since the v.7.3 update was released, it’s been possible to change numbers without deleting your Viber.

To switch phone numbers without losing your Viber account, follow the instructions below:

Open your Viber app and Go to the more screen.



Go to Settings, and tap on Account under it.



Choose Change phone number.



If required, you are prompted to backup your chat history

In the next page, input your new phone number and tap continue

Verify your new number.

Getting a new number verified is akin to verifying a new Viber account . An SMS with a code will be sent to your new phone number, or a hang-up call (for Android users alone). Type in the code you received when prompted. Once verified your number will be changed, and your Viber will be just the way it was before you switched numbers.
