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.

I have really liked signal so far. I switch from WhatsApp because of their changing privacy conditions. Signal is much more private. The quality of the app isn't much different from WhatsApp. The only reason I'm not giving it 5 stars is because I have downloaded pictures from signal to my phone a few times and the only way to do it is 1 at time. It's really frustrating that you can't just select multiple pictures to download. Also, video quality is poor when you video call someone.

I love the fact that this message app is much more flexible. For example, without having to have certain phones, emojis are available to use for all. Another example is that I can delete messages if I didn't express properly or found typos. I just wish an editing feature was available instead of having to delete the entire message for whatever reason. Overall, this is my preferred method of communication next to Telegram app where all things I appreciate are available.

The main reason I downloaded this is to have more security, privacy, & break away from everything Meta! I like the simplicity of the app. I do wish that we had more color options for the chat bubbles. It would be nice to have a darker chat bubble option, especially in the spectrum. For someone who has a light sensitivity, darkness is my friend. So maybe perhaps on the next update you guys could give us a more robust color option. Other than that it's wonderful! The ability to edit would be nice!
