Currently, there are many iOS users using Viber for communication. What people especially love about Viber is its features for messaging session, allowing users to add emoticons, stickers, photos and videos in messaging. So the app could bring lots of fun to those who prefer chatting with images. But what to do if we accidentally delete the chats before we could save those awesome photos or videos on our iOS device? Or lose the photos or videos because of an iOS 12 update failure?
Actually, when you delete a Viber chat, you can't find the chat on Viber but a small part of its data is still stored on your iOS device memory. If you could recover this part of data before it is overwritten by the new generated data, there is great chance that you can retrieve your Viber photos and videos. To do that, you need a tool named FonePaw iPhone Data Recovery (opens new window).
The program works perfectly in Window or Mac OS environment. After your iOS device is connected to the computer, the program can detect the information of the deleted Viber photos and videos on the device and recover these media files to the computer. It is a simple tool for non-technical person like you and me. All you have to do is to download the program and click several buttons with your mouse.
