Review from John Kimball
Not so private any more. I feel with these updates they have lost there way. I was using this when u couldn't take a screen shot, or now u can see when someone reads ur text, seriously how is that private. I have over 50+ppls I got to use this but now iam on the hunt for a replacement for myself and all those ppls I will get to move on with me. Profiles now how agian is this private? This isn't the app that I choose few years back it's a messenger with smiley faces and ur text messages can be captured and shared to the world ( but that's not why u was using this app) make changes or better yet make a other app or a upgrade to use all this new stuff but make it were if someone doesn't use the upgrade no one can take screen shoots, or have a option to see when other person reads there messages. Iam not trying to have someone cry me a river cause I looked and didn't respond thanks for the new headache signal team
I'd love to use this more but I've already spent hours over the past several months trying to get it to reliably notify incoming messages on two phones - using the relevant help info page. Not yet sure if that is sorted out. Need to be able to trust it!
I wanted the best encrypted texting app available, yet still be able to text the newbs who use unencrypted popular apps. Every communication we send may be subjected to scrutiny and exploitation. I seek to send confidential, encrypted messages (I work in health care). Caveat: the recipient must use also use Signal for complete send-to-end encryption. If you don't understand the importance of encrypted communication or encrypted data storage, please look into it. Encryption has transformed into necessity, especially with the end of net neutrality. Signal is user friendly with lots of options and broad integration. Those who join this encrypted communication community, will be plesently surprised. You can have it all with signal: It's free, it is open source, it is easy to use, and it is encrypted. Now seek a VPN, an encrypted email account, a search engine that does not report your queries, an obfuscating browser, and encrypt your storage ( phone, computer, tablet, etc.)
Superb app. The talking feature captures everything I say almost perfectly and noone can see any of my communications!
Absolutely essential app for encrypted conversations. Great if you need to share sensitive bank information, for example.
Please add notification for if other person takes a screenshot of chat... Also, messages on both side should be deleted if one person deletes it like in telegram App.
Messaging works perfect but phone call system doesn't work at all you can never hear what the other person saying.... Fix it
Changes in 4.13.6:
★ Fifty-six new emoji are now available. Signal supports Unicode 10.0 and Emoji 5.0. Is your friend walking through a mall food court? Ask them for a pretzel using one character instead of seven.
★ We made the search bar more visible so that it is less difficult to find. The poetry of this action was not lost on us.
★ Answer or reject incoming calls by swiping up or down. You can still answer a call the old way by holding your phone sideways when it rings.
