Viber for Windows Phone, Viber for WP, Viber on Windows

If you’re one of many who may have discovered the flaw in your Android device’s lock screen (where the Viber app allowed replying to messages without unlocking the smartphone, which could have been used to provide full access to a locked phone) after downloading the popular VoIP and messaging app, you’ll be happy to know that an update has been released for the app that fixes the issue.

Viber 2.3.7 was released specifically to fix the lock screen problem, so don’t expect anything too major. It’s also worth noting that this update will not be available through the Google Play store, so be sure to enable third-party downloads in your Android settings before opting for the update if you do choose to download it. The update can be accessed through this link if you’re visiting TruTower via your Android device.

If you choose not to download the update, no worries; the update could make its way to the Google Play store eventually — Viber version 3.0 is rumored to be out soon. In the meantime, just make sure you keep tabs on your Android smartphone or tablet at all times if you have Viber downloaded on it.
