    The 'seen' status tells us if someone has received and seen the message that we have sent them.
    If the message has not been seen, it says "Delivered". Any messages that are sent to us will also tell the sender if we have seen the message. If we want to turn the 'seen' status off, we need to go to the settings.

Hi kara, could you tell me if I send a message to some one on Viber and the message is delivered but not seen, does this mean that the receiver is on another profile?

My friend goes away when we are chatting on Viber, when I send a message to ask if they are there the message is delivered, that status is shown, but the measure is not seen, at this point the receiver is still on line on Viber, does this mean that they are on another profile, because the message is delivered and not seen.
