“I cracked my iPhone and I'm getting a new iPhone X. someone at the mac store told me to back up my iPhone on my computer first, but what I want most is to back up Viber messages as I have tons of Viber data saved on the device, help??”

Viber is a social chat app which works similarly to WhatsApp and Facebook messenger. Many iPhone users choose Viber as their first choice to keep in touch with colleagues and friends. And they store their chat history on their iPhone including messages, photos and more. However, data loss could happen in our daily life for various reasons such as iPhone damaged or lost, mistaken operations, update to the latest operation system (iOS 13/12/11 for now), and so on. We know how important your Viber history is so here we offer three ways on how to transfer Viber history from iPhone to the computer for you to keep Viber history safer.

1. Transfer Viber Messages from iPhone to Computer by Email

Viber offers users the method to transfer Viber conversations from the iPhone by its own with simple steps shown below.
