Viber has released a new privacy-enhanced version that brings end-to-end encryption, hidden chats, contact authentication, and more.

The company says that the new services will be rolled out globally in the coming weeks. The new privacy features will work across Android, iOS, PCs and Mac desktops in the coming updated version of Viber app.

The company also said that Viber’s encryption will come with different  levels of security, which will show up in the form of a color-coded lock on the right side of the screen where a grey lock means you are fully secured or encrypted, red lock means there is a problem with the authentication key  whereas green lock means that you can additionally authenticate users before each conversation or to continually monitor them to make sure the users are verified.

Other new features
  • Increased security – the padlock icon confirms that all your messages – including groups and cross platform messages – are end-to-end encrypted 
  • Hidden Chats – hide away specific chats so nobody knows they even exist
  • Contact authentication – a new layer of security allows you to protect yourself further with a simple ‘trust contact’ mechanic 
  • ‘Like’ media from the preview screen – click the heart to like photos and videos even while you’re watching them
  • Reduced app size – Viber now takes up less space on your phone.
It is available for free and supports all iPhone, iPad and iPad touch running iOS 7 or later.
