Awesome security features 5/5
By Spartanero 117
In these times people are recklessly throwing away personal information for the convenience of app communications. It is refreshing to know my messages are encrypted, secure, and not sold to the highest bidder nor are my images being used for facial recognition and GPS leakage
Just stop! 1/5
I'm giving it 1 star because it asked to be reviewed within a minute of it being downloaded, need to fix that!
Stop harassing me for a rating 1/5
By Evan Dagger
Low star rating because it persists in bothering you.
No multi-device support 3/5
A decent encrypted messenger, but why can it only be used on one device? Signing in on an iPad logs you out on the iPhone and vice versa. This makes it too inconvenient for me to use; I’ll stick with Telegram.
Signal is easy to use and is probably more secure than email. 5/5
Signal review A+ 5/5
I need secure conconversations in my business of finance and this is about the only app and company I trust to use
Needs to allow for default SMS/MMS 3/5
Unlike the Android version, the iOS version does not allow the user to set Signal as the default messaging app. I do not like juggling multiple SMS apps.
It’s freaking good
Reliable messaging, needs way to backup on IOS 4/5
Been using the app for a few months. Reliable. Fast. Nice design and functionality. Needs way to backup and restore on iOS.
Always clear, always secure.
By Tuff Mel
Like it so far, only had it for 5 minuets !!
PRIVACY messenger/call platform....... 5/5
By Amy Levvo
This is a response to a few previous reviews of idiotic people complaining about Signal not saving backups of conversations and etc.
The whole point of signal is to be the best tool around to encrypt your communications; therefore you don’t want Signal backing up your conversations somewhere where they can be later recovered.
If you’re sharing pictures to grandma of your cat or your kid taking his first poop, use iMessage or WhatsApp which have many more features.
With more features comes more security holes and that’s why signal is more bare bones than other messenger platforms.
Stop asking me to review 4/5
4 stars because while I love this app it won’t quit asking me to review it
This is the best app ever 5/5
By Chi-town boys
This is the best app ever!!! Downloaded it today
Makes video chatting more difficult 2/5
This app invades your contacts and makes it so that sometimes when you try to FaceTime it attempts to signal video chat, super annoying. Other than that decent app, notifications only come through 3/4ths of the time when the app is already active on the phone and more like 1/4th of the time when the app is closed.
CEO wellness international group 5/5
By Wild Thing Stevie Ray
They treat me like a God ! Why is that?
Facebook monetization destroys What’s Up users confidence 1/5
The influence of Mark Zuckerberg‘s path of greed to subject What’s Up to immediate monetization, seriously impairs the future usefulness of the app.
Both founders have left as a consequence. The encryption is not safe any longer and the WhatsApp will lose its attraction to the informed user, who will seek alternatives that are protecting the privacy of its users and not subject them to advertising floods. Mark Zuckerberg‘s infamous statement regarding Holocaust denial will yet come to haunt him. Not even a Zuckerberg is safe from being defrocked and ridiculed for moral and ethical incorrectness. He reached his Zenith and is now already descending. The share loss of 30-% just the beginning of a continuous slide into the abyss. Good riddance
Best way to communicate securely 5/5
Best way to communicate securely with a minimum of metadata being captured.
Doesn’t ring for calls 3/5
I miss every call (even if the app is open) but then I’ll hear the notification that I missed a call. Smh. Otherwise it serves its purpose.
Wouldn’t stop asking me for a rating so it gets a 1 1/5
Wouldn’t stop asking me for a rating so it gets a 1
Sigh of relief 5/5
Signal is a sigh of relief especially with those disappearing messages
Have used for years very secure 5/5
I love this app
Lack of cross device sync is not great. More group control - ability for admin to delete messages sent into a group on all recipient devices would be cool too
Favorite Messaging App 5/5
They’re doing everything right. It’s encrypted, safe, and no unencrypted backups laying around.
Just… this seriously needs a watch app. Many apps, which would be ideal, lack watch companion apps. It’s made me hesitant to buy one only because of this shortage.
Good and Reliable 5/5
By Camden McWhirter
Great easy to use app with secure talk and text capabilities.
One of the best apps I have tried 5/5
This is an app that is utterly intuitive - easy to use. It safeguards privacy and has the user in mind. This is why so many professionals that value confidential communication stick to signal.
typing status 4/5
Great app and great call quality.
Please add typing status.
Rando creepers stalk you 1/5
If anyone with your phone number can message you through the app, this is a danger. War dialers exist. People I've blocked on other media can know I have this app. So can employers.
This is the opposite of what I'd hoped. Until I get to opt in to each number rather than opting out, it's not safe to use.
So so 3/5
No time stamp on messages. Desktop app constantly says it needs to update, although it does not.
Great for texting, not for talking 5/5
Very easy to use for texting and setting up groups. When trying to talk, calls are frequently dropped and inaudible.
I thought you were still encrypted. I’m guessing Apple bought you out as they do everyone else. With newer versions you could screenshot which makes encryption useless anyhow. And now there is no linking of phones necessary.
Works great every time. Really appreciate the privacy.
This app is easy to use and very clever to keep secrets from my wife.! 🤗😉😇
This is an app from future! 5/5
By Abdulla Q
This is an app from future!
signal: it's for adults mmmmkay... 4/5
read subject: i'm done.
k thx baiiiiiii
Stop asking 1/5
Asks to write review after every message i send. Yeah, its a helpful sevice, but too many notifications along with everything else on my phone
Just thankful that my family has made my best 5/5
You know the whole story about it I don’t even care how you do much love
Slow with iOS12 3/5
Not sure what has happened recently but the app has become very unresponsive at times since I upgraded to iOS12. 3-4 second hangs when I try to read a message. It's not just me either.
الأفضل يكون نفس برنامج الواتس في سهولته
great app. please add functionality to export the encrypted media library in bulk. either create a standalone desktop utility where we can enter our key to unlock, or integrate they functionality into the existing desktop apps. thanks!
Good app - but disappearing messages keeps unsetting 4/5
I want to be able to associate the disappearing messages options with my account, not a specific conversation on a specific device. It keeps un-setting whenever I upgrade or use a different device.
Keeps asking me for a rating and I don’t like rating apps without trying them for a few weeks. 1/5
Keeps asking me for a rating. No option not to have it pop up.
Signal is fully featured while protecting and respecting my right to privacy. Thank you Open Whisper Systems!
No backup functionality 2/5
Apparently, Signal on iOS has absolutely no backup functionality, and no way to transfer message history or contacts to a new device. I just got a new phone, and now need to start completely fresh. All my messages are lost, all my contacts are gone (including their verification status, …). I’m unlikely to use the app too heavily now, knowing that I could lose everything again, with no recourse.
Better than all other secure chat apps 5/5
By Third chases kicked chafed
Clean, fast, feature full and most importantly open source.
Dark Mode 5/5

No noise for message 2/5
The app is called Signal but when a message comes in there is no way to make it beep or ring so sometimes the message sits there for a long time before you check because there is no way to make it make a noise.
It needs to “signal”you.
