    On the 'Home' screen, we need to find the 'Viber' tile
    .
    The tile has a purple background with the 'Viber' logo in the middle. The logo is a white speech bubble with a white phone inside. If the 'Viber' tile is not on the 'Home' screen, then we swipe left to find it in the 'Apps' menu.

    We have to be in the 'chats' section

    Then, we need to choose a chat by tapping a name
    .
    In the tutorial, we only have one chat currently available, and it is with our friend named H. This is already an option. If we have multiple options, we choose one to go through the process with us. Tap on the name of the contact or on the profile photo. We need to delete one particular message now.

    .

  10. 10
    In this example, we found some text messages
    .
    They are 'Hi' and 'Thanks'. They are not from us, and we have to remember that we can only delete our own messages that we have written ourselves. We cannot delete messages from anybody else.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  11. 11
    We should find the message highlighted in blue to delete
    .
    Messages are ours if they are highlighted in blue. In the video, there is no profile photo yet. We can then delete the message. We cannot delete messages from other people, but we can delete the messages that we have written. We should find the message that we have written.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    We tap and hold the message until the menu appears
    .
    Once the menu appears, we should see a big white rectangular area with some options inside. It has 'forward via Viber', 'copy', and 'delete' at the bottom, which is the required option. The options are written in black text. We want to delete this particular message. Maybe we just regret saying it or do not want to see it anymore.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  13. 13
    Tap the 'delete' word
    .
    The application is going to delete the message. It is gone and left no mark, as there is not even an area that said that there was a message before. The application just totally deleted the message as if it was never even written. We can do that with every message that we have written ourselves.
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  14. 14
    We just tap and hold the words or the photos to delete them
    .
    We can delete photos in the same way. Tapping and holding will bring up a new menu, where we should look for the 'delete' word at the bottom. This will allow to delete the message.
