    Hi,

    This is a Viber Media official representative.

    Your website states that “This website gives 3 freeware alternative to any paid software”, however, Viber is a completely *FREE* software and we would like to clarify that.

    If you have any questions we would be happy to answer. :)
    Thanks,
    Viber Team

    @Viber Team: Thanks for coming in :) You are right that Viber is completely free. And now we have actually started giving options for free software as well, so that people get more options.
