Why We Need to Delete Viber Voice Messages
If you find yourself regularly using Viber, there are many reasons why you might need to delete your Viber voice messages. These include:
- Saving space. These messages are audio files, and so sometimes they can take up a lot of room.
- Privacy protection. What if someone steals your iPhone or decides to snoop? They will be able to hear your private voice messages unless you delete them.
Now, just deleting manually isn’t enough. When you delete voice messages within the app, they still hang around in your storage until they are overwritten. You may not be able to see them, but a hacker or a nosy person with the right recovery software may actually be able to!
