How to Hide Online Status of Viber

-- Thursday, March 28, 2019
"Why is Viber showing that I am online when I am not?"

You may feel strange that Viber always shows that you are online when you are not. Virtually, Viber is always running in the background of your Android phone/tablet. So you can always receive incoming Viber calls and messages. This requires Viber to show your online status so that you can always appear to be online to your Viber friends. If you feel disturbed by incoming calls and messages, you can disable the feature "Share online status" and hide online status of Viber. Read on and see how to simply turn off this feature.

Steps to Hide Viber Online Status

Step 1 Select "More" Option
Connect your Android phone to an available Wi-Fi hotspot or turn on mobile network. Then open Viber app on your device and sign into your account. Next, tap on the More option (three-bar icon) at the lower-right corner.

Note: Turning off this feature will certainly hide your online status from other Viber users and it will also hide their online status from you.
