As surprising as it might sound, this is one of the many queries we receive from Viber users who wish to use two accounts on one phone. For instance, you might want to keep one Viber account for your work and the other for your chats. While it might sound tricky, some workarounds can help you do the same. To do this, you can use an inbuilt feature of the device or any third-party application. In this guide, I will teach you how to use two Viber in one phone with some other Viber tips to consider.
Part 1: How to Use Two Viber in One Phone via Parallel Space?
When we talk about running dual apps on a single device, Parallel Space is one of the first solutions that come to our mind. Being an extremely popular app, it is already used by millions of users to duplicate several applications. Furthermore, Parallel Space is compatible with every primary social application like WhatsApp, Facebook, Instagram, and more, so it can easily help you run two Viber accounts on your phone.
- • Make sure that your device runs on Android 4.0.3 or a later version
- • It should have at least 1 GB RAM and at least 15 MB free space to accommodate the app

After getting to know these prerequisites, you can learn how to use two Viber in one phone by following these steps:

Click on the “Backup” button and start the process to save your Viber data on your computer.
Wait for a while and disconnect your device when the backup process is completed.
Step 3: Restore Viber backup (optional)
You can restore the existing Viber backup to your iOS device if you want. Connect it to your system and select the “Restore” feature of the MobileTrans Viber module. From the provided backup list, just select the file of your choice.
Start the restoring process and ensure your device stays connected to the system. When the process is completed, you can safely remove your device.
That’s a wrap, everyone! I’m sure that after following this guide, you can run two Viber apps on your phone. To do this, you can try any other application or even explore your phone's native dual apps feature. If you don’t want to lose your Viber chats, then use MobileTrans to take a backup of your device.
