I have Viber app installed on my phone and on my PC (same account). If I receive a message on my phone, how can I delete it without deleting the same message on the PC program?

Unfortunately, the messages deleted from your primary Viber device will automatically get deleted from all the other secondary devices. Viber started as a mobile application, so you won't be able to set your PC as a primary device. This means that you can install Viber on how many devices you want, but the primary device will always be a mobile phone (the iPad can also be used as a primary device, but it is not recommended), and any message you delete from your phone will be deleted from your PC. Basically, you can't delete the messages from your phone and keep them on your PC. More information about primary and secondary Viber devices can be found on the official Viber support website:
