How to Monitor Viber Messages and Calls – All of Them

In this article you will find out how you can monitor all calls and messages sent and received using the Viber platform – works on cell phones and tablets. I will explain why this is important, what you need and look at the best programs available.

What is Viber?

If you are a grown up the chances are you haven’t even heard of this one! There are so many new chat and messenger programs popping up lately that it is hard to keep up, but make no mistake your children will know about this one.

Viber is basically an App which you can download to a device – Smartphone, iPad, Tablet or even PC. It allows the user to send text messages or make voice calls over the internet using the devices data plan or a Wi-Fi connection. This potentially means

the calls and texts are free as they do not use up the device’s call tariff allowance.

It will only work between devices with Viber installed and the App is free to download. Kids love it – free calls and texts between friends. There are several similar programs available for this kind of messaging but Viber is one of the fastest growing.

Why You Should Care?

This website covers a lot of information about monitoring cell phones using spy software. Any of the decent quality spy programs allow you to monitor regular SMS text messages and at least log all calls made and received – fairly standard features of all programs. See my chart comparing spy software programs and their features.

The widespread use of programs like Viber means that a large proportion of calls and texts are going to remain hidden. This is a problem – if the phone user is using Viber for calls and texts most spy software programs will not pick them up and you will not know what they are up to. However, now you have options.

The better spy programs have been busy trying to cover this “loophole” and now you can monitor all activity that takes place using the Viber App. There are a few things you need to know before this will work.

What You Need

This is very new technology and only a few programs can actually monitor Viber at the moment. At present you can only spy on Viber on Android and IOS devices – Android cell phones and Tablets and Apple devices such as the iPhone and iPad.

Another important point is that Android devices must be Rooted and of course any Apple device needs to be Jailbroken. (links explain what these are if you are not sure).

Now if you want to monitor Viber on these devices you can, but you need the best spy program – right?

Viber Monitoring Software

At the moment I would only recommend two –  mSpy  (top pick) – Mobistealth spy app,  and Flexispy – Mobilespy are yet to release support for Viber.

They all have the same requirements – Rooted Android and iPhone Jailbreak plus Viber monitoring is only included in the advanced features price bracket.

What is Reported?

  • Contents of all text messages sent and received using Viber.
  • Numbers, dates and time stamps for texts and calls – both parties.
  • Call logs will include call duration along with details of the phone numbers.

You can’t record the actual calls – but I know they are working to achieve this. Getting access to all of this information is just another step towards complete monitoring

Which is the Best?

I have tested it on both Flexispy Extreme and Mspy and both work well. FlexiSpy, as usual, were the first to release this feature spy on viber messagesso maybe they have the edge in terms of ironing out any initial problems.

You are unlikely to be making a choice based solely on Viber monitoring – you should be looking at the value of the overall program and does it suit your needs. Check out my full reviews to see how they match up before jumping in.

Check the features you need and the pricing. When it comes to Viber monitoring there is not much between these two programs, both perform well.

    Is Viber really free to download and use. Are the calls actually free – seems too good.

    • Susan Kennedy September 18, 2013 at 2:09 pm #

      Yes Viber is free. Calls and messages will not be charged as calls or messages – they will be data transfers taken from the phone data plan allowance. If the phone is connected via Wi-Fi it is essentially free. It is a great way to save on your text or minutes plans.

      The software will not record calls made using Viber – but it will give call logs with times, dates, duration and contact number.Message contents are reported. It should work alongside other software, just depends on the software you are using. Good luck and thanks for your comment.

    Once you pay for the program, can you go back by a month or two, to check calls etc, or is it only from the day you purchase it?

    • Susan Kennedy February 24, 2014 at 10:51 pm #

      I’m afraid it will only begin monitoring from when you activate the software. That would be nice though!

    Is the only way to successfully use the spyware is accessing that persons phone and installing the app? There is no way it can be done remotely (i.e. someone overseas and there is no access to their phone)?

    Pretty obvious but I thought I would still ask!

    Thanks.
