Viber 'Will Become Chargeable' Hoax – Hoax-Slayer


Circulating message claims that messaging service Viber will start charging you to send messages if you do not send the information to ten people to prove that you are an ‘avid user’.  

Brief Analysis

Viber is not set to start charging users for sending messages. The message is just a new version of an old hoax. It is derived from a very similar hoax message that claimed that WhatsApp would start charging users who did not send the warning to others. Sending on this nonsensical message will help nobody.


Saturday morning viber will become chargeable. If you have at least 10 contacts send them this message. In this way we will see that you are an avid user and your logo will become blue () and will remain free. (As discussed in the paper today. Viber will cost 0.01€ per message. Send this message to 10 people. When you do the light will turn blue otherwise viber activate billing. Dont forget to send it back to me.
