Signal - Private Messenger App

Privacy is possible, Signal makes it easy. Using Signal, you can communicate instantly while avoiding SMS fees, create groups so that you can chat in real time with all your friends at once, and share media all with complete privacy. The server never has access to any of your communication and never stores any of your data. • Say Anything - Signal uses an advanced end to end encryption protocol that provides privacy for every message every time. • Open Source - Signal is Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code. Signal is the only private messenger that uses open source peer-reviewed cryptographic protocols to keep your messages safe. • Be Yourself - Signal uses your existing phone number and address book. There are no separate logins, usernames, passwords, or PINs to manage or lose. • Group Chat - Signal allows you to create encrypted groups so you can have private conversations with all your friends at once. Not only are the messages encrypted, but the Signal server never has access to any group metadata such as the membership list, group title, or group icon. • Fast - The Signal protocol is designed to operate in the most constrained environment possible. Using Signal, messages are instantly delivered to friends. • Speak Freely - Make crystal-clear voice and video calls to people who live across town, or across the ocean, with no long-distance charges.

    By Skenney
    Easy to use, and the phone call quality is great.
  • Great app 5/5

    By Dangerbag1968
    Private and professional. Only downside is with local wifi, not app's fault.

    By ari_allure
    Great App, just switched from Android and it's just as good over here.
  • Crashing 1/5

    By jhassiv

    Real secured app
  • Grateful 5/5

    By erikfredner
    Encryption is essential. Signal makes it easy. I'm grateful to the developers for their hard work and commitment to increasing privacy.
  • Clean and Easy to Use 4/5

    By Machineman91
    I like this app a lot (on android). I was surprised how watered down it feels on iOS. I can't use it to send SMS here which renders it half useless. On android it's my only SMS app because it works to send via SMS or securely on data. Apps in the iPhone App Store are starting to feel like relics in a dinosaur museum.
  • Car integration is working again :) 5/5

    By sgibson5150
    For the last several versions, I had problems in my car. Calls placed would ring through the car speakers, but it switched to "private mode" as soon as it connected, forcing me to switch to speakerphone. Before that, it would only work correctly when I received an incoming call. This version is working perfectly! Thanks guys.
  • Amazing app 5/5

  • Works great 5/5

    By Mat fog
    No issues so far
  • Text icon notification disappearing 3/5

    By 49er/Madden fan
    I had two friends message me. I read one message and didn't open the other. When I minimized the app, the app icon notification disappeared and then I forgot to message my friend until the next day. Can you please fix this?
  • Great app! Just one word of concern: 5/5

    By Franciss09
    Enjoying the app, just Im only having one problem: when I try to connect via bluetooth, either to my wireless headphones or my car, it does not pick up the connection or doesn't connect at all. Is there a reason for that? Thanks!
  • Great w/one request 4/5

    By jmocker
    Could you add the ability to turn on finger print recognition with the iPhone for extra security?
  • Excellent app 5/5

    By coastalpanda
    App gets better with each release. Awesome job on the Bluetooth support, it is as possibly my biggest gripe with Signal.
  • Excellent app - please add stickers 4/5

    By Island Life
    Signal is the best of the bunch when it comes to private messaging apps, so why is it so hard to get my friends and family to switch? Simple answer-- stickers. They want to be able to send stickers. I love Signal and want to use it more often. If there's any way to add the stickers feature, it would probably attract a wider user base. In terms of privacy protection, Signal can't be beat.

  • Thanks Whisper 5/5

    By Kim133
    Love it, especially in this age of incipient fascism.
  • Good but needs to allow accounts that don't divulge phone number 3/5

    By anon 73882
    The only real problem with this app is that I cannot communicate with anyone unless I want them to have my phone number. That's a huge privacy issue for me, and not a limitation in competing apps.
  • Good and easy to use 5/5

    By RepublicOfHumanity
    Good and easy to use. I hope they maintain the level of privacy they have now.
  • Secure but lacking UX basics 3/5

    By tuffrog
    I really like the idea of Signal i.e. secure communication and just based on that alone I give the app 3 stars. That said the UX has a lot of opportunity for improvement. Basic things like contact management is needed. Managing contacts should be a right click away versus not being able to do it at all or having to remove contacts from your device etc. Also clicking on a photo to view it and then swiping left or right to move between multiple photos like on iOS would be great. The "desktop" app needs even more UX work again if which contact management is paramount. Fingers crossed I see continued improvements on the iOS app and desktop app because I would really like Signal to become my primary and only messaging app.
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By Sqrgrl8353
    The app is intuitive and easy to use.
  • Very good and reliable. 4/5

    By Ming21
    I switched to Signal after becoming frustrated with the unreliability of Wire. Signal is much better. The call quality is higher and the reliability is significantly better. Two features I would like to see are password (finger print on iOS) protection for the app and an address book that is wholly contained in Signal and independent from my phone address book. This is very good and stable app. Please keep improving it.
  • Da best 5/5

    By enawnaw
    Da best tho
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By James Swiss
    Private and super easy to use
  • Terrific app 5/5

    By freemind303
    Disclosure: I am not an overly technical user, but I prioritize security over everything else. I have and continue to shift as much of my communication as possible to Signal and have had no issues with stability or performance, as some others apparently have. The feature set is already robust and while I am sure the developers will continue to focus on functional gaps between it and other messaging apps, it is already great to me. Please keep up the great work!
  • Usernames option please! 3/5

    By Review4556
    **!! Please add username or email option for identifier instead of phone #. !!** Only reason I don't use signal as primary messenger. Privacy is the goal then option should exist to identify only with a username as phone number is a large identifier. Lower image quality/size option for attachments. Method of showing message has disappearing timer is clunky and takes up a lot of screen room on each message. Doesn't need to be so prominent. Only show in top bar is enough. If not going to add feature to delete individual messages for both parties then add feature to have a default delete timer. When a new message thread opens, until you set a disappearing timer all those messages until then have no way to be deleted. No cloud/iTunes backups is a FEATURE and great. The app is great. I would be happy to donate $100 if you add usernames to the protocol. Thank you!
  • Secure and easy 5/5

    By SatelliteOfLove81
    Fantastic app that is one of the best chat apps around.
  • voice message and ... 2/5

    By Ashkan 181
    signal is secure but its UI is not good and i cant listen alone to voice message and other can hear , cause voice message only play with speakers ... also signal is slow
  • A vital service in our no-privacy age 5/5

    By Brooklynzak
    Does just what it says on the box. In an era in which the idea of private communication has become almost quaint, it's great that Signal are doing their bit to allow us ordinary citizen folk to communicate with some reasonable expectation of privacy.
  • Total Garbage 1/5

    By 🔒
    The idea behind this app is well intended, however, its short-comings completely ruin it. One of the biggest pitfalls is that it needs to be restarted constantly during the course of a conversation. Forget ever scrolling back up to earlier messages, because once it gets to about page ten the app crashes. So there's no possible way I can go back to something important. It's also very sluggish even on the latest Apple hardware. I'm ditching this piece of junk, because it's one of the worst apps I've ever used. Also, this app wants access to all my contacts? That's not privacy...
  • Easy to use and comes with a trusted pedigree 5/5

    By Lawnmower Guy
    Research them all and you will come around to this one, it's the most trustworthy. Hope it remains that way.

    Perfect app for privacy!
  • IPad app blows 3/5

    By PK27023

  • Great app 5/5

    By Lisa M Wion

  • Signal 5/5

    By BlacknBlueBird
    Absolutely love this app 😋
  • Appreciate it !!! 5/5

    By DocSoup
    I don't know much about this stuff but I have some friends who are geeks, if that is the right term, and they highly recommend & use it!!!
  • Signal not as robust as Android counterpart? 3/5

    By Version_3
    I used Signal for Android quite a bit before coming to iOS. In Android, I used a long passphrase to get into the app, and trusted that if my phone was compromised, Signal had an extra layer of protection with a passphrase only I knew. I don't like that I can't get this in iOS, but I'd like to see it added.
  • Excellent messenger 5/5

    By Gala Vant 989
    Best messaging app out there. Shame more people don't use it.
  • Pro level messaging 5/5

    By Mhsfbay
    For an App I never heard of , but a friend in the cannabis industry who apparently needs privacy lives it and I do too. Easy, fast to use.
