Signal - Private Messenger app reviews

  • Potentially Life-Saving for Domestic Abuse Victims 5/5

    By Themrscg
    I’m in the thick of helping my friend move because her husband is a dangerous, mentally abusive psycho. This app is what is allowing her to communicate safely with me about the plan to move her out at a specific time without worrying about her crazy husband getting into her phone, discovering it, and reacting as his most dangerous self. Very thankful for the ability to do that.
  • Love signal 5/5

    By ln-in-co
    Best chat, text, 1:1 video app out there !
  • Love it 4/5

    By EmBlakey
    I love it maybe 93%. It’s usually very reliable and I love the security and various features. I wish the deleted messages would just recall and not leave a notice they have been recalled. I’d also like to be able to do that after any amount of time, as Wickr allows. Messages often don’t go through unless looking in the app already. At least for some people, some of the time. Be great to fix that as it’s definitely an app issue. But otherwise, great stuff!
  • Not working 1/5

    By Smally78
    You guys need to fix the issue as am unable to call
  • So glad Signal was recommended! 5/5

    By PjorgT-B
    The app is more secure than other apps of this kind. Easy to download pictures and videos. And love the ease of video chat, crossing boundaries of android and iPhones. The video quality of very clear images was what I noticed straight away.
  • Room for improvement 3/5

    By Daniel Bridges
    Chat listing doesn’t clearly show who its participants are; Disappearing Messages seem to vanish without everyone having read them (but maybe this has been fixed recently?) — might be good to add a notice like “all messages have been displayed to the recipient” or “recipient last checked the chat on ___” to reassure the user the recipient chose not to respond (though this would be bad if incorrect) …
  • Updated and now useless 1/5

    By Vilborgio
    Just install the update of this app and now it won’t open up at all on my phone
  • Great service, but too much “noise” in Signal 3/5

    By DevonZmaj
    Switched from Whatapp with the Facebook policy change. Appreciate the security of Signal. However I cannot stand that every time I go to have a conversation there are all these rando contact recommendations that I have to manually swipe left to remove. No way for me to have a “home” screen with my chosen contacts or option to stop auto-suggest people! I will determine who I want to be in contact with - let me search for their names to see if they are in Signal. Super annoyed that oz have to use the search feature for people I have added and that I had 57 messages displayed which is just all these rando folks that the app finds. So when I actually DO get a message from a contact it’s lost in the noise. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!
  • Chumps or champs 5/5

    By captfapcon
    Pick this app if you want to be a champ. Pick others if your a chump.
  • Like App but Eats my Battery 3/5

    By heber911
    Using it for a week now on a new iPhone 12 … turns out my quickly depleting battery seems to be caused by signal high usage , including high background consumption. I don’t see any real tweaks to help this? Sifting through git hub this seems a common bug with no resolution… correct me if there is a way … I like the app itself
  • Dudes(ets) 5/5

    By SomYoung(V)
    Don’t miss the summer of signal 2021
  • My wish list for Signal! 4/5

    By jfk red duck
    Copy and Paste! Copy and Paste’
  • Great 5/5

    By Greninja6581
    But please put visible lines between chats. It looks unfinished as of right now.
  • Security Flaw? 2/5

    By 60's fool
    If you receive or send a message via Signal containing an address it will be accessed and content copied to any Map app (Lyft, GMaps and Apple Maps. This includes the name of person or business. I noticed this first with Google and Apple using Apple Messages. So i thought this info would be safer with Signal. Not! This is concerning as whatever info is accessed in now fodder for these companies. This is using iOS. Hey Signal, Wheres my privacy?!
  • Good but glitch 4/5

    By mibegr
    Very good, but there is sometimes a glitch where, for a particular contact, you cannot text or call them.
  • Fix the damned interface!!! 1/5

    By Chibitoku
    Why I’m God’s name did you remove and break the ability to set colors in a conversation? This new interface is horrible! I’d much rather have my colors back than gradients and a slick background!!! Fix this crap.
  • Not working with iPhone 1/5

    By frustated user7
    I cannot locate any co-workers by phone number. They have a signal account, using an iPhone also, but this app shows “no user exist with that number”. The same happens if my worker try to add me by phone number. iPhone contacts will not sync with this app. This really needs to be fixed asap or my entire team will have to use another application!
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By 06EASJ
    I loved this app so much. It was flawless until everyone started to use it & the servers became overcrowded. Now, my messages are delayed when sent, other people are not receiving my vn's when sent. App crashes on & off. I reinstalled and getting the same issue. I use to be a happy user. Have to minus 3 stars because of these issues. Used to always be 10 stars for me.
  • Review 5/5

    By CRAZY scan123$
    Short but sweet. I love this site . It open up real honest communication with words and pictures to share.
  • Hope big brother isn’t spying on us 5/5

    By BigPaulieF
  • Bug won’t let me send pictures 1/5

    By ThisIsAnAppUser
    This app has bugs that won’t let me send and type of photos, videos, links or docs. It crashes every time I try to send anything other than text 😑
  • Terrible Photos 4/5

    By Jibberish18
    I just want the option to send High Quality Photos to others. Is that really too much to ask for?
  • Call quality is not good 2/5

    By BLuckyG
    Waiting for improvement in calling feature from Jan’ 21. Audio doesn’t work properly and video call is always broken. Speaker mode is very confusing, app switches back phone mode all by itself. Why offer broken features and frustrate users ?
  • Epic fail 1/5

    By NGSomers
    In the middle of a project with a large group of people and out of the blue my messages stopped uploading to the thread. Very disruptive!!!
  • Super service 5/5

    By xoxo503
    Privacy number one, please help donate In life nothing is free !! Help this guys
  • Too many bugs 1/5

    By Xpalmisa
    I switched from WhatsApp, and was hoping this App to do the same things. However;It has a lot of bugs. Sometimes when I call it won’t call sometimes when we video chat the video won’t work, most of the time one person hears, the other person on the other line does not. I have submitted issues to the creators, never heard back, not sure if they receive them. Please fix those bugs!!!
  • MG 1/5

    By Yayox9
    To many requests for people to join in my signal 86 individuals in 1 day.
  • Usable for text messages only 2/5

    By NewNomad
    The iOS version of the app is very unstable. Every version I have tried crashes consistently when I try to share a photo or video. Even after trying multiple times it only works a sometimes. If I am near my computer, I avoid the app and use the desktop version to send photos and videos. I don’t know about the Android version but not being able to share photos or videos reliably makes it very difficult to ask my friends to use Signal.
  • Cannot delete account 5/5

    By JonSnowden
    I cannot delete my account. The screen goes blank when it asks for my number to delete my account. Update: I was able to delete my account by rotating my phone to landscape
  • Very Good Media 5/5

    I am really enjoying messaging and calling excellently
  • switched from whatsapp 5/5

    By Jaswak
  • Signal Login 5/5

    By jjjjjjjooooshuuuuuaaaaaa
    Hi, so I couldn’t get the app to open somehow so I deleted it and redownloaded it, now I can’t login into my old account and I need it for so much things, pls help me.
  • My favorite 5/5

    By Megaturban
    It’s clean & simple.
  • Too much work 1/5

    By ex-apple-user-1023
    This app is tedious, requiring constant baby sitting and prodding to keep it running, and if you ignore it for too long? It’ll delete all your data in a fit.
  • Broken core functionality that never gets fixed 1/5

    By wtangofoxtrot
    Everyone: - video call audio has been broken for months - photo and video sharing has been broken for months Signal Devs: let’s add colored chat backgrounds !!
  • decent 3/5

    By polreclipse
    i think this a very good app but there’s one major problem, my messages don’t always deliver, sometimes they stay on the 1 check mark for a while, and when my girlfriend sends me a message i don’t get it for a while after she already read my message for some reason. please fix this
  • Great to have privacy 5/5

    By cduymbh
    This is the only app in the world that works to keep conversations and texts private. I love it and am thankful to those who realize how important it is to be able to talk to someone privately. What a gift!!
  • Screen freeze when loading gallery 4/5

    By ijustwannaplayagame
    My screen freezes every time i’m opening up the gallery to send pics. Not sure if it’s because of the huge amount of photos i have or if this happens to others as well but i’m on ipad 2018 and i don’t have the same problem on other messaging apps.
  • Doesn’t let me delete for everyone 1/5

    By nads200
    It doesn’t even let me delete a message for EVERYONE. Not just for me.
  • Better than WhatsApp but has some flaws 3/5

    By jkude30
    Switched for privacy and it’s the best aspect of signal. Voice and video calls essentially don’t work for me, they are nearly unusable. Sending videos is a real chore, takes forever and is fairly buggy. I’ve had to swipe the app out of memory a lot to resend them. My partner is overseas and we rely on sending videos quite a bit. Allow them to send in the background and it would be better. Improve those things and it’s a five star and you’ll get a donation.
  • 142 mb??? 3/5

    By Burns8888
    Why is the app so big? Stop occupying all our space for no reason. Whats app is like half this size.
  • Great but need some improvements 4/5

    By Tech search
    Since I start using Signal I realize some things that are missing and hope to see them with the coming updates, most of the time when you close the app and someone sends or calls you and your notifications are on, you cannot know until you open the app, please don’t tel me that my phone is old or my connection is poor, it should appear in your notification bar that you have a call or message, you cannot know who’s online and when your last appearance, one more important issue that must be taken into consideration seriously, while having a call the battery loses a huge amount of it in a very short time.
  • Easy to use 5/5

    By C31A
    The app is easy to use and switch back and forth with other text apps. The security is a great function and improvements seem to be happening often. I dig it
  • Love Signal - But CarPlay 5/5

    By HatAndTheCat
    I really want to be able to start a VoIP call with Siri and use Signal with CarPlay! Sending a message is great, but just a call is what I need!
  • I love signal, BUT 3/5

    By snuggleton1
    My go to messaging app, but the new colors are an accessibility nightmare, please give us a way to turn that feature off.
  • Multiple devices 5/5

    By AustinGould
    You should allow even a phone to be set up like a tablet if a user so chooses. This would allow multiple devices to work as long as the initial phone is connected to WiFi if I’m not mistaken.
  • Was perfect until last update. Why Signal, why? 1/5

    By Dr. Whosewhatsits
    New update disables the option of copying received links. Instead it automatically opens links in phone’s default browser. This is not a feature it’s a bug. Privacy conscious users use multiple browsers for different purposes. That’s why we’re using Signal. Please give users back the option to copy links to clipboard without automatically opening link in default browser.
  • Disappointed 2/5

    By e_value
    I am one of those who left the market leader in exodus recently (January) and joined Signal with lot of hope. I only use Signal’s basic features to send messages & make video/audio calls abroad. Message delivery is not instantaneous and the receiver can hardly hear the call. I had to call them on the regular phone and ask them to come on Signal to take my call! Even then the transmission is choppy and fuzzy. The issue is not with the internet connection at either end as other apps work just fine. I hoped that the quality will improve over the past 5 months but didn’t see any. Any plans?
  • Calls/Video Calls are WORTHLESS 1/5

    By Meof59
    Any call or video call is worthless. Why even bother to offer something that doesn’t work well?
