Edited by Thor, Sid Bedekar, Jen M, Anonymous
Hello and welcome to VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show you how to turn your location On or Off when using the 'Viber' application on a Microsoft Lumia 535.
- 3On the home screen, we need to find the 'Viber' tile.Mine is located here. You can see that here is a purple tile background and in the middle, there is the Viber logo which is a white speech bubble with a white phone inside. If you have not pinned the 'Viber' tile to your home screen, then swipe left and find it in the 'Apps menu'. Once you have located the 'Viber' tile - wherever it may be - press down on the tile to enter the application.
- 4What we want to do in this video, is show you how you can turn your location On or Off.What turn your location into means is that people will be able to pinpoint your location on a map and on a map when looking at your messages. If you have this option turned Off, then people will not be able to find your exact location on my map from your messages. This is a choice you can make based on your own desire. First thing we need to do is to make sure that the setting is turned On in the 'Settings' menu and then you can also manually turn the option On or Off when you are sending messages if you actually want to send your location in a particular message. You can do it manually but, first of all, you need to make sure the location is turned On in the 'Settings' menu. To do that, we need to press this icon; in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen, there are three white dots in a line. It does not matter what section you are in. Right now, we are in the "chats" section. Even if we change to different sections, this icon will always be here. Find this icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen and press down on it.
- 7We are going to have the first option up here.The first option says "use location services.". Right now, it says "Off" and the icon is empty (there is a white bar inside). If this is turned Off, it means that you will never show your location in your messages, and you will never reveal your location. If you do not want this to be on, then you can leave it as off.
- 10It is important to know that if it is still turned On, you can still turn it Off manually in a chat.Therefore, even if it is on in this menu, you will still be able to turn it Off in an individual chat. Let us go and find our individual chat now and show you how to do that. To go back, we are going to press this icon here - the white arrow in the bottom left the corner. This will take us back.
- 20Right above, you can see that there is a message here - it is just gibberish - it says "Ghhg".I think it is a code. You won't notice but if you look very carefully or if you look on your phone, you will see there is the time or the date and then next to it, there is a small icon. A map icon. That means that when this message was sent, it had the location turned On.
- 21I am going to turn Off the location.You see "Your Location is Off" and now I am going to write something. If you want to go through, type in what you want and then press this icon here in the bottom left hand corner in the little white circle in a white speech bubble inside, that will send your message.
- 29You know that there are two settings with two aspects.To turn the location On or Off when using this application.
