As Covid-19 remains to be a global health concern, Valentine’s Day this year may look a bit different. For couples who are apart and for single people who’d want to get a shot at love, things will have to go virtual. Of course, nothing can replace the warmth of a lover’s touch, but this doesn’t mean Valentine’s Day will be boring. At Viber, lovers and those actively looking for love will have enough ways to make landi—in a much safer way.
For the month of love, send love notes to your crush or jowa through fun, funny, and flirty customizable cards with the Vibe Check bot. Viber has partnered with Linya-Linya, a local retail brand loved by the younger crowd, to bring their witty one-liners to the messaging app! The brand has prepared 34 standard card templates and 16 special ones that you can only unlock if you get a high Love % from using the bot.
But that’s not all, you also have a chance to win Linya-Linya discount vouchers and merchandise when you take their fun Love or Labo love quiz that asks about the things you’re willing to do for your SO. Kaya mo ba mag-LDR? Or ibigay ang balat ng fried chicken? Answer these questions to find out your Love or Labo rating!
Linya-Linya is also releasing its own love-themed sticker pack to make your chats with boo or crushie extra flirty! Once you download the stickers, you’ll be redirected to Linya-Linya Land, the brand’s Viber Community.
And there are more things you can do with Viber this month of love, wink! Leave a bit of room for your SO’s imagination by creating your own GIF, instead of sending a video! In the chat. Just tap the Gallery icon. Select the video you’d like to turn into a GIF. Edit your video as you wish and hit the GIF icon. Click send! It’s that easy!
And if you really want to send a video, you can do so in a more adorable way with Viber’s heart-shaped instant videos, which will be available for all users between February 12 to 16. To send some cute clips to your boo, simply hold the instant video icon on your chat screen and release it when you’re done recording.
But as you should know by now, virtual landian shouldn’t be just fun. It should be as safe, too—because you don’t want to see your flirty messages get leaked! That’s why Viber remains to be one of the safest apps for sending sensitive messages of any kind—be it a flirty Valentine’s Day text or a wholesome Chinese New Year greeting for your family and friends. While it uses end-to-end encryption by default, it has also added safeguards for its users like Disappearing Messages in regular chats. This allows you to set a self-destruct timer for your messages. But for your further protection, it also informs you if the recipient has taken a screenshot of the message, just in case!
And if you really want to be extra smart about your messages, you can also use Viber’s Hidden Chats feature that allows you to hide certain conversations from the chat list that you can only access via a PIN, whew!
The pandemic may not be over yet, but this doesn’t mean you should deprive yourself of some kilig or some form of companionship. Be flirty! Make the first move! Catch up with a friend! Call your parents! And do it without compromising your privacy.
