Block Someone’s number in Viber (iPhone and Android)
Unfortunately there is no such option provided yet in the Viber app. You cannot block someone’s number in Viber either in iPhone nor in Android.
Till now, developers have not provided this feature but millions of the users are demanding for this feature. There is no official way to block anyone in Viber app.
The reason why this feature is not available is very simple. developers of this app says that it imports contacts from your contact app of your smartphone or from the address book. Friends who are using Viber app are automatically found and listed as contact within the Viber. Now no other person is in your contact list who you don’t know earlier and he/she can’t send you messages nor they can call you. This is how you can secure yourself from annoying unknown calls and text messages.
But recently many users were found complaining for the fact that they are receiving calls from unknown phone numbers. This issue is still in consideration at the developers and we yet to receive any official announcement whether the block option will be provided or not.
Then how to block someone’s number in Viber?
There is still a way which you can use. You can delete the contact from the main contact app of your smartphone. This is how that particular contact will be removed from your phone and so it will also be deleted from the Viber app.
