About this app

Millions of people use Signal every day for free and instantaneous communication anywhere in the world. Send and receive high-fidelity messages, participate in HD voice/video calls, and explore a growing set of new features that help you stay connected. Signal’s advanced privacy-preserving technology is always enabled, so you can focus on sharing the moments that matter with the people who matter to you.

• Say anything – State-of-the-art end-to-end encryption (powered by the open source Signal Protocol™) keeps your conversations secure. Privacy isn’t an optional mode — it’s just the way that Signal works. Every message, every call, every time.

• Go fast – Messages are delivered quickly and reliably, even on slow networks. Signal is optimized to operate in the most constrained environment possible.

• Feel free – Signal is a completely independent 501c3 nonprofit. Development is supported by users like you. No advertisements. No trackers. No kidding.

• Be yourself – You can use your existing phone number and address book to securely communicate with your friends.

• Speak up – Whether they live across town or across the ocean, Signal’s enhanced audio and video quality will make your friends and family feel closer.

• Whisper in the shadows – Switch to the dark theme if you refuse to see the light.

• Sound familiar – Choose custom alerts for each contact, or disable noises completely. Simon & Garfunkel wrote a hit song about it in 1964, and you can experience the sound of silence whenever you want by choosing “None” as your notification ringtone.

• Picture this – Use the built-in image editing features to sketch, crop, and flip your outgoing photos. There’s even a text tool so that you can add more words to the 1,000 that your picture is already worth.

To early to tell, but so far it's been working ok. All though a few times it has interfered with my Bluetooth pairing with my vehicle & also caused a freeze up to my phone having to reboot the phone. Other than that it seems to be pretty secure. And just now answering your questions at the bottom of this page, I don't see the area to submit? Oh look it just popped up, strange?🤔

We've used this for over a year. In addition to knowing our communication is secure, I like the confirmation that a message is delivered/read. It's pretty seamless even with non-signal users. The accompanying desktop app is great! There are a few oddities: when the safety number for a contact is reset it's a little clunky if you aren't local to one another.

Signal is a well polished Messaging App and the E2E encryption for messages and audio/video calls is well integrated. This should be the norm. My complaints are small. 1) the reliance on a valid phone number is a bit of a killer for the privacy community. (2) The ability to become the default Messaging app seems to be underdeveloped. That's it. I love the app for the most part.

What's new

★ 🫢 We updated to emoji 14.0. We couldn't be happier 🥹
★ Enjoy the new audio indicators in individual and group calls. Identify who's speaking more easily, or find out who in the call is near a construction site and needs to mute their audio 😉
