I installed Viber in January and used it only for about 1-2 weeks and I didn't use Viber since then (because I don't use both SIMs and phone anymore). I wanted to delete my Viber account and I heard that after 1 year of inactivity my account gets deleted automatically. Does it get deleted permanently after 1 year and I won't be visible to my friends anymore? Or should I just delete my account within the app? Even so does it take 1 more year to be invisible?

Yes, your account will be removed after one year of inactivity.

You can also delete your viber account by following means : Viber 2.0 has a “Deactivate Account” option under a “More” tab that instantly deactivates your account. By choosing to deactivate your account in this manner, you will be deleted from the list of Viber contacts on your friends’ phones.

There isn't precise information about the period of time after which a Viber account gets deleted automatically. I haven't used an account for 6 months and my friends can still see me as being "Last online 6 months ago". At some point after 1 year or so, the account might be in a review process, but it won't get deleted. If you choose to manually delete your account, the process will take a few seconds and it's permanent.
