    This is what we want to do, so tap on deactivate.
    Let's deactivate Viber. You will see a message that says Deactivating and then a message that says Leaving Viber. That will remove it from all of our devices associated with this phone number. That means if you have this phone number setup, as an example, your PC, or your MAC, or a tablet, then that version of Viber will also be deactivated from this phone number. That does not mean that you cannot later have another phone number or set up another Viber account.

    Now, our phone is restarting in order to complete the removal of Viber and all associated and related components.
    This may take a moment to start back up; however, it's a necessary part of the uninstallation process, as Viber has access to a number of core systems that cause the Android and Samsung systems to function and interact together.
