    To unlock the phone, swipe the screen up.
    Once the phone has been unlocked we will see the home screen, and at the bottom we will see 5 icons. We now need to open the application folder.

    We can do that by tapping the icon in the middle, at the bottom of the screen.
    There is a grid of white dots. This is the icon for the applications folder.

  4. 4
    Now that the folder has been opened, we need to find and tap the Viber application.
    There is a Viber icon, which is a purple speech bubble with a white telephone inside, and underneath it says the word "Viber". Your application may be in a different location, so look for the icon in your folder. In this tutorial, we want to demonstrate how to quickly turn on and off the location of messages that we send from Viber.

  6. 6
    We now need to tap on the faint icon to the right of "Type to compose".
    It looks like a small arrow pointing north-east. It's currently faded, but when we press down on it, it turns purple. This is the location icon. If we normally don't mind that someone can see our location, but one day we go somewhere and don't want people to know our exact location during that time, we can quickly turn on and off this option. Even if we're just going to another city for the day and we don't want someone to know, we can turn it off.

    Do this same procedure; type something in with the location service activated, send it by pressing the send icon, and we will see that next to the time in the message, there is a small pin icon.

    If we press down on this pin, it's going to open up the map because the location is included with the message.

  12. 12
    We can see that this message does not have the location.
    Even though we've sent the exact same thing, the last message is smaller than the top message because it doesn't include that icon and the location information. This is a way of turning our location on and off quickly when sending messages.
