Nice app, but has a few issues. 3/5
By Star of Sorrow
I downloaded this as the behest of a friend, and it’s handy to have. However m, it does have problems. My app crashes when I try to use the camera or share a picture. And it happens nearly every time. Additionally, sometimes I will not get an alert that someone has messaged me on signal, as well.
True Love! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜 5/5
Keep up the amazing updates!!! You guys have always been awesome, but you keep raising the bar by adding features like stickers and reactions (if you could make the reactions a little larger that would be great for those of us without great vision). And I’m slowly convincing friends and family to join Signal with every added feature. I SOOO appreciate the privacy you enable!!! Please keep up the the hard, fantastic work!
😡 Reactions !!! 😡 1/5
By ios 5 was the best
The app has severe serious multiple issues, like battery drain(*), battery heating, bugs related to audio calling, bluetooth, unable to call on iPad, inability to be fully anonymous without requiring a phone number, no way to backup and restore chats, linked device losing link etc
...and despite all these, what would you think they put their efforts into?!
CONVERSATION STICKERS and REACTIONS!!!
Wakeups: 45002 wakeups over the last 83 seconds (542 wakeups per second average), exceeding limit of 150 wakeups per second over 300 seconds
Yes! Privacy please! 5/5
I feel my information is really secure. It is fast, reliable, just necessary tools to share fun or sensible information. We need this! THANKS!
no customer support! 3/5
By Levy Lev
good app, but having an on going tech issue, reached out several times. nothing.
Great app but need some work 5/5
By any thing will do
This app is perfect after trying other I like it’s support and how it integrate with the OS
But please turn off the share feature on time based messages. Imagine someone forward a private message to another app and viewing it from there for every
By Peter Steal PHD
Highly recommended messaging app that gives you the privacy and security you truly need these days.
Camera in app not working 4/5
Great app all around, it’s my go-to. However the last few versions my in-app camera does not work. PLEASE FIX!!!
Lento para cargar fotos, videos o archivos 3/5
Esta app es más lenta que otras, como WhatsApp para cargar fotos, videos u otros archivos
Great app 5/5
I just downloaded this app and there’s so much to like about it. Smart people and great app! Thanks
Far too many notificarions 2/5
I do not need a sound/vibration for every message I receive. Notification every second when friends were writing drove me nuts. This has pushed me to turn off notificationa for the app.
Unwanted Features 3/5
Entry of name should not be required.
Use of ‘features’ like stickers should be optional. A way to hide or switch off nuisance items would be greatly appreciated.
Headed toward feature parity with other chat apps 5/5
The new reactions are fantastic! Thank you for adding these in! Much better than a simple “like” button.
Signal’s reputation for security goes without saying. The bigger problem for wide adoption is the lack of modern chat features, such as the ability to “like” or “react” to messages. So many of my friends have tried and then rejected the app because it didn’t have features that GroupMe had, such as polling and calendars. By far, the one complaint I got from those who wanted to switch back was the lack of a “like” or “react” feature.
Better than WhatsApp! 5/5
I like this app firstly because it is not owned by FB. I’m tired of FB already.
Second, it snappier and works simpler. Once you know your way around, it’s great
One thing (not really a negative) I’d like to see if the ability to auto save pics.
Keep up the good work Signal
Unfortunately disappearing messages is not an automatic setting 4/5
Unfortunately disappearing messages is not an automatic setting
Tumbling Downhill 1/5
This app keeps trying to rope in mainstream users at the expense of its original base. "Stickers" do not add anything to a conversation, and all of my contacts already know my full name. So if you're not going to undo your asinine feature additions, at least give us the option to disable them and, most critically of all, stop nagging us to use them!
Hello although your application is safe and has many advantages, but it lacks the support of a screen reader for the blind, please fix the deficiencies and make your application fully compatible
Doesn’t really respect privacy 1/5
To use this app, it is mandatory to reveal your phone number to everyone you want to contact. This also allows for anyone who has your number to see if you use Signal, whether you want them to or not. Other security-based apps allow for use with usernames to truly protect your privacy. Lately, the app has been harassing the user to put in their real name to go along with their number. I don’t know what Signal's agenda is, but it seems privacy is in the back seat.
Needs phone number to sign up 1/5
For a privacy oriented messaging app the requirement of a phone number in order to use the app is dissatisfying.
Open source messaging app 5/5
I love that the app is open source and available on all platforms. The ability to manually verify your keys is nice.
App used to work great, with latest update won’t even open 1/5
The app used to be excellent, everything worked perfectly, and it was a good solution to the privacy troubles of other messaging apps. Now however the app has zero functionality as it cannot even load past a blue screen with the chat bubble logo on it.
Cannot be used on iPad without smartphone. 1/5
By Mr. Red Carter
I have a flip phone and iPad and without having my number attached to a smartphone, there is no way to link the app. This is possible to do on android. I think we should all be suspicious of a privacy app that demands to be attached to your phone number.
STOP bugging me for a PROFILE NAME 😡 2/5
Please add a do not ask again!!!
”Remind me later” or “set one up now” on the main screen is getting annoying.
How about option 3 : “NO, don’t ask again” 💡
Keeping Zuckerberg off my chats. 5/5
Facebook is a really creepy company, don’t feel comfortable using Zuckerberg’s WhatsApp Facebook messenger.
Signal is a perfect way to keep your conversations private, love it.
Signal is really bad 1/5
Like, really, really, really bad. Terrible user experience. It's the only app on my phone that ceases to lose all functionality after a wipe and restore. I can't even recover from a linked account from the Signal desktop app. The Signal apps are all just terrible, hot garbage that stop working for various contrived reasons. Their developers just don't know how to made a good app for as long as I've used it. There are plenty of better alternatives out there, anyway.
Cannot verify phone or use the app at all. Crashes 1/5
The app crashes constantly whenever I try to use it. It will not let me verify my phone number. Terrible
Pay attention! 5/5
Please! Add screenshot detector and ability of video chats as in what’s up or in Facebook messenger. I want write and see my friends. Thank you.
Private and Robust 5/5
By Stolen Octopi
Absolutely love Signal, I’ve been using it for years and try to get more friends and family to migrate away from insecure messaging. As a cyber security professional, Signal is essential in my private life. As more and more people are slowly moving toward privacy friendly messaging and it’s great to see people moving over.
Keep up the great work!
The one thing I’d like to see is a version for the Apple Watch so I don’t need to have my phone with me at all times to send/receive messages on the go.
REACTIONS LIKE ON iMESSAGE!!!! YES!!!!!! 5/5
By Creat1ve Destructi0n
REACTIONS LIKE ON iMESSAGE!!!! YES!!!!!!
Screenshot Prevention 4/5
Greta app, adding screenshot preventions would be nice
Secure and functional! 5/5
Works great, also, very secure. Love it.
Love this app 5/5
Great app and service. Only one small issue I find very annoying. It’s impossible to delete messages from the “Note to Self” section, when it contains an URL/link. It automatically goes the preview. I hid the preview and it still doesn’t allow me to delete it when using my device. I am able to delete it from the desktop application.
Please quit asking 3/5
By Amused Reviewer
for last names. It's irritating.
App keeps crashing... 1/5
...when I try to send a photo.
Lost Everything 1/5
By 512KB — 32GB
I was a lightweight user, making a few texts per month. Then along came the update for iPad layout and now I’ve been kicked out!
Every time I open Signal it tells me to connect it to my iPhone. It never was linked to an iPhone. I only ever used it on this iPad.
I did an erase and restore of my iPad, a time consuming pain. All that effort was for naught, Signal still demands I link with an iPhone.
I can’t even just write off all my chats as a total loss and start from scratch! Deleting and reinstalling Signal still demands I connect to an iPhone!
This is pretty lousy, I can’t run Signal any more. Oh well, Bye.
P.S. Still broken. Is it possible to run this on iPad without a phone?
Stop with the stupid UI overlays 1/5
I want a private messaging app - not iMessage. I don’t want overlays about emoji / prompting me to add a display name / etc. Give it a break
Exceptionally user friendly and 100 % secure app 5/5
There is no better messenger than Signal! Telegram is weak and WhatsApp belongs to Facebook. I do not trust Zuk. !!!! 💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙💙
Whatsapp before it got bought by facebook. 5/5
This is the equivalent of that.
Friends/contacts notifications 1/5
I don’t like that it notifies your contacts that you have Signal when you first sign up. I also don’t like being notified when my contacts sign up.
Feels safe, but lacks necessities 4/5
I love being able to use this app and feel safe that I can set convos to disappear. I love that it’s highly encrypted.
I do not love that any member can add people to a group (against the wishes of the group) and that groups cannot have an admin who can remove members. Makes no sense.
Mr S 5/5
Always steady, features so useful for customization. So important in the current climate of potential information compromise. Grateful!
Having secure communication which is hack free is the requirement
To many 3/5
I’ve updated this app 4 times in the last 7 days! What the heck is going on!
This app, like kik is just used for catfishing. It’s easy to screenshot messages, photos, and videos. Not a fan.
What Gives? 2/5
I’ve been updating repeatedly lately. Checking the version history, I see the exact same text. If that’s true, why are you asking it to be updated? If something has changed, why is the same text description being used to describe multiple updates? #confused #disenchanted
Too many registration lock prompts 3/5
I just reinstalled this app 2 days ago and have asked no less than 5 times to re-enter my PIN for registration lock. That is WAY too many. I understand if I get a new device but when I've been using this device and only this device for 2 days repeated prompts is ludicrously annoying. It appears to happen after the app receives and update. Unless the device UUID changes it should ask for it once and no more.
One update for each day!!!! 1/5
R u kidding?!?! Fix all issues then release a proper update. U are releasing an update everyday!!!!
Needs @ option 4/5
App would be perfect if we could tag people in a group chat (@) similar to Messenger.
Used for Several Years :) 5/5
I’ve been using Signal for several years now and it’s been an excellent service!
Has been out performing WhatsApp in privacy and I’m STICKING with it!
Cheers to Signal for their efforts to insure and respect the privacy of their users!
