By default, Viber offers a native method to back up messages via emailing them to yourself in zipped CSV files, which in most cases is useless.
There’s a much better method that allows you to:
- backup your Viber message to a computer;
- save all photos and videos from your Viber conversation;
- select the conversations and message you’d like to transfer from Viber to computer.
Follow the quick tutorial below to safely back up Viber messages on PC in a form of the original conversations on the iPhone.
How to back up Viber messages on PC?
First, you’ll need a tool to save Viber messages. Download CopyTrans Contacts on the computer: Download CopyTrans Contacts
Install the program. If you need help installing CopyTrans Contacts, please refer to the Installation Guide.
Start CopyTrans Contacts and connect the iPhone. Wait until the program loads the data.
Click the speech-bubble icon on the left. From the list of sources on the top right, select “Viber”. This will display all of the iPhone Viber messages.
Select the conversations to back up by checking the box on the left of each message. To select all Viber messages at once, check the box next to “Messages” on top.
To export messages for the specific period, click on a cogwheel symbol under a list of services and choose the exact time frame:
Click “Export selected”.
Browse for the PC location where you wish to back up the messages. In this case, we’ve selected the PC Desktop.
Select the format in which to back up Viber messages.
TIP: We recommend using “Web page” or “PDF” options since your messages saved in these formats will look exactly the same way as they appear on your iPhone. PDF format is also the best if you want to enjoy the full range of your emojis.
Your Viber messages are saved to the computer folder of your choice into individual HTML files. Double-click on the HTML file to display the backed-up message.
The Viber conversation complete with pictures and any other attached documents is now backed up on your PC.
