Viber - Prevent popups from unlocking your screen


Each time you receive a new message on Viber, a notification pop-up will be displayed the homescreen of your device, unlocking your screen in the process.
To prevent this from happening:
  • Open Viber.
  • Tap on the Menu key > Settings.
  • Go to the "Notifications" section.
  • Uncheck "Unlock for popups":
