I've found out my husband has downloaded these apps & they are now deleted. He says he doesn't remember downloading them but may have done it if someone at work mentioned them. He was really defensive but now has gone quiet. Why would he use these? I've not used them so no idea how they work.

Does he have an android phone? I believe it's snap chap designed for android very similar with disappearing messages

No he has an iPhone. We use whatsapp or text. I've never used these other apps or gears or viber before tonight .

Maybe he wanted to connect with friends or colleagues who have them. I use both apps for friends. DH has Viber.

Thank you for your answers. I think I was worried as they'd been deleted & he denied knowing what they were or using them. Thanks again.

Viber is messaging and calls like whatsapp. They stay until up delete.

Snapchat is instant and vanishes.

These are just messaging apps. Messenger is connected to Facebook so if he's on Facebook or has friends who are on Facebook, it's just the private message function of that website. You need to have it to read Facebook private messages now. Viber is for sending text messages free over wifi. Snapchat is messaging with silly photos.

None of these are apps I'd be suspicious of. Everyone uses different ways of keeping in touch so it's not unreasonable that he'd have some friends who want to message on Messenger, some on Viber, some on iMessage etc.

Also, I've downloaded loads of apps myself just to have a look at them then deleted them after downloading them. Snapchat for example I downloaded to see what all the fuss was about then deleted it because it's photo-based messaging and I'm not a big picture taker. Viber I use for talking cheaply with people who are abroad. Messenger I use constantly to chat with colleagues through the day as it's easier than email.
