The Viber 10 introduces two new features that emphasize its value Viber as an effective, strong and safe for the privacy communication application.
- Hidden-number Chats in Viber Communities, a new feature that allows community members to interact and exchange messages without having to exchange phone numbers. This encourages the spontaneous interaction between members of a community, while ensuring their protection. Users can communicate with another member in a community by clicking on their profile -displayed each time they send a message to a community– or from the list of participants in the community. If they feel comfortable, users can reveal their phone number to their interlocutor and communicate freely.

With a refreshed user interface and enhanced performance, Viber 10 continues to commit the company to 100% privacy of users, with full end-to-end encryption by default in all private and group conversations and calls.
