How to hide online status and seen status on Viber

Perhaps you don’t want all of your contacts to see your online status, and maybe you would like to hide seen status as well. You can change that in seconds, and we are going to show you how. Steps are as follows:

  • Open Viber app on your Android or iOS device
  • Next, tap More and then tap Settings
  • Once you enter the Settings, tap Privacy

At the top of the Privacy page, you will see options Share “online” status, and Share “seen” status. Just tap on each and they will turn off.

It is important to mention that you can’t change Share “online” status option more than once in 24 hours. So, if you change your mind and want to turn it back on, you will have to wait for a day before you can do that. Viber will notify you when you can make changes again.
