Viber Activation Code Problems and Errors

Q. Android Mobile/BlueStacks Viber on PC - I am not getting the Activation Code on my Mobile. What next ?
Ans. Please note that the below solution works for both Android Mobiles and PC (by using Bluestacks software). So if you did not receive your access code via SMS, Viber authentication system will securely provide you with your Viber access code. Actually Viber will give you a phone call on your mobile and read out the access code.

To receive your access code, follow these instructions:
  1. Open Viber on your device.
  2. Go through the setup again, until you reach "Enter your phone number..."
  3. Enter your phone number and tap on 'Continue'.
  4. If you haven't received an SMS with your access code within 60 seconds, click on the ‘No Code?’ button.
  5. Now Viber will call you on your phone.
  6. Accept the automatic call and write down the given access code.
  7. Enter the code into Viber to complete the set up.
Note: You will NOT get the access code (activation code) via Email. The Access Code feature was created for identification purposes to protect our users' identity and ensure that they are the real owners of the number that they are registering. Receiving your Access Code via SMS will prevent other users from obtaining your access code and placing calls with your caller ID.
Q. Viber Invalid Code Error - Common for all mobiles ?
Ans. If you are getting the error that the activation code is invalid, then you will have to wait for some time and then re-enter the code. If it still fails to work then we would suggest you to wait for a day and install the Viber again (reinstall) and receive a new SMS code.

If it still fails to work (and keep failing), then just follow the procedure described in step 1 (fail to get activation code). You may try to register to Viber with a different number (for example - your home landline number, a friend's number, etc.), in order to determine whether the problem is specific with your number, or a general one.

Q. Wifi Related - Viber not connecting with internet
And. 1. First, please try uninstalling and reinstalling Viber when connecting to a few different WiFi networks (in order to pinpoint the source of the problem). What are the results?
2. Also, please make sure the following ports are enabled ("forwarded") on your routers or firewalls:
TCP: 5242 + 4244
UDP: 5243 + 9785
(if you are not sure how to enable ports, you may contact your router manufacturer)

Q. Make Viber work in Blocked Countries
Ans. If you are from a blocked country where Viber fails to work (you are not able to receive sms and not even able to open then the only possible solution I could find is to use VPN (virtual private network) on your mobile. This is similar to using proxy. It will fool them and will be like as if you were from USA or any other working country(for iPhone use proxy settings). Also make sure to use the method described in step1 (receiving phone call and activating).

If you are not able to get Viber working on your mobile (and facing any activation issue) - then please share with us in the comment section. May be we can help you out!
