Many Viber users feel regretful after mistakenly deleting Viber messages or getting them lost for other reasons. Maybe, it is a special message that your girlfriend sent you for Valentine’s Day. Or it contains some important information that you want to use as proof. Whatever the case may be, retrieving Viber message history is the most urgent thing. This page will show you how to restore Viber messages on iPhone with or without backup.
Method 1: Restore Deleted Viber Messages from Backup
Download Viber message backup from email:
If you have regularly sent backup files of Viber messages by email like this: Viber > More > Settings > Calls and Messages > Email Message History > Send Viber Messages to your email or others. Just login to your email and download the latest backup file. The Viber chats (not including photos or videos) are stored in CSV files and cannot be restored to iPhone, however.
Restore Viber chat history from iCloud or iTunes backup:
Supposing that you have recently backed up all iPhone data (Viber included) via iCloud or iTunes prior to deleting Viber messages, you can restore your iPhone from an iCloud or iTunes backup. But this restore process will replace all data on your iPhone with that in backup file, and you may fail to retrieve the deleted Viber messages from iPhone backup.
