Viber further strengthens user security by introducing two-step verification –

Rakuten Viber, a global leader in private and secure messaging and voice communication, announces the introduction of its latest feature – two-step verification. An additional level of security allows users to authenticate their accounts using pin code and email. This feature will be gradually introduced in a number of countries during May.

Viber’s commitment to providing a secure communication platform that puts privacy first is reflected in the ongoing work on new features like this one. Viber messages are already encrypted from end to end, eliminating access to third-party data, and the disappearing message feature gives users additional control over who sees what they send. The latest two-step verification feature is another example of Viber’s commitment to providing the highest level of privacy – which will provide users with the security they need to communicate on the Viber platform.

Users who choose to activate the two-step verification feature will create a six-digit PIN and verify their email address. To log in to Viber via a mobile device or desktop – the user will need to verify the account by entering their individual PIN code. In case the code is forgotten, a verified email address will be used to help the user regain access to their account.

In addition, having a PIN code will prevent the possibility of deactivating the account using Viber for desktop. Anyone who tries to deactivate the Viber account via the desktop will have to use a PIN code.

The new Viber feature allows users to apply additional security measures to ensure the privacy of their accounts. Two-step verification protects against hackers who hijack user accounts to send spam or access private information. Reducing the number of unverified accounts within the platform will not only reduce the number of spam on the platform, but will create a more efficient and stable application for users to communicate with loved ones around the world. In addition, Viber is working on adding biometric authentication in the future.

“The privacy of Viber users is at the forefront of everything we do. We are committed to providing a secure, encrypted end-to-end messaging application, and this new feature takes it a step further in that regard, ”said Amir Ish-Shalom, the company’s information technology director. Rakuten Viber. “The two-step verification will alleviate the security concerns of our users and convince not only consumers but also businesses that Viber provides the latest technology to ensure that the platform remains secure.

The new two-step Viber verification feature will be presented to users in selected European countries, before being introduced worldwide.
