Restore Media Files from Viber Chat on Android

"From past one year I started to use Viber for chatting. I sent and received media files like photos, audios and videos through this platform on my LG G5. Two days before I was using Android system optimizing application to get rid of unwanted data. I don't know what went wrong; all Viber photos, audio and videos are gone. I checked again and again, but there is nothing at all. Can anyone provide some tips for restoring media files from Viber chat on LG G5? Thanks!"

Actually, there are two methods to restore Viber pictures, audios, and videos from your Android phone – If you have no backup, you can turn to Android Data Recovery. If, luckily, you have previously backed up your files, you can recover your Viber media files with the backup.
