It’s 2019 and for some reason when I changed my phone from android to iPhone there is no way to get all messages from the backup. Very strange
Must have! 5/5
Even as an iOS user and know iMessage is encrypted android standard Messenger is barbaric sms and wide open, I only answer any message from this app. If you care about privacy at you should have this app plain and simple. Even if not it’s the best messenger app out. Thank you devs for doing it for free too it’s truly a humanitarian effort.
Any android Friends? Tired of the green bubble? 5/5
You want truly secure messaging between your iPhone and android? Pick up this fully encrypted messaging app. Since Apple won’t submit iMessage to Android, protect your security by using this App. Heck, even WhatsApp was hacked.
Working great 4/5

Camera update awful 1/5
Your camera was great bf you updated it 2 days ago. You could just press the button to record, now you have to hold it down for a video the entire time and most the time the speaker doesn't work. No sound!!!!
Perfect Combination with Proper VPN 4/5
Signal is great. You configure the settings to your liking & it’s very private. You can enable face-ID, Thumbprint, & a pin. It allows disappearing messages, & calls, even video calls. The video calls rival FaceTime, which is surprising because I’ve tried many different video call apps, all seem to be sub-par to FaceTime. However, Signal is right there. I wish more were using it so the government can’t pry at our messages & companies like Facebook & Google can stay out of our conversations. Keeps us away from ad trackers with the combination of the VPN. None of your phone listening to you talking or typing.
4/5 stars simply because 5/5 makes no sense. People wouldn’t read the review & I want the company to make it better over time, not get complacent & do no future updates. It can improve in certain areas.
Stop making updates that freeze the screen 1/5
Not sure how to get in touch with the developers so I’m writing this here. The last two updates you’ve done have made the app even worse. It takes 40 seconds to open up the picture options and another 40 seconds to send it. That’s 80 seconds in a conversation of not being able to talk or do anything because the screen freezes until it downloads all the pictures. 80 seconds is a long time when you’re in a hurry and need to message fast. Just go back to only being aloud to upload one picture at a time. It might take a lot longer to send a bunch of pictures at once but worth it for quickly sending just one or two pictures when that is the goal.
No backups for messages 1/5
I just realized that there will be no backups possible for messages sent on Signal. I regret using the app for communicating with my close friends and partner. This is unacceptably stupid. Our messages history is a memory book and we want to keep it. Make it an optional feature at least or I’ll move back to Telegram.
Encrypted App with some cool features it’s like the update WhatsApp needed but never got
Everyone should be using this!
The last 2 updates have RUINED this app!!! They changed the camera mode, which WAS working fine, with an inferior camera mode that makes you HOLD the button to record a video! AWFUL and UNUSABLE!! Plus, mine no longer records any audio in my videos. A problem they are claiming is “my phone” when I’ve read countless other people experiencing the same issue! I’m using a brand new iPhone Xs with 256GB of which I’m only utilizing 40GB and they told me I must not have enough space 🤦🏼♀️ They clearly don’t know what they’re doing.

Every time i open it it says device no longer registered. Does this always happen its a pita !
Solid messenger app overall 5/5
Hands down the best choice for security for an app with such user base. No issues from day to day use, stable, light and fast. Interface is clean and easy to navigate. The only thing may be that it lacks the smooth transitions between taps, like viewing photos, hiding the keyboard.
Great, but a few kinks 3/5
I love the idea of encrypted, private messaging and calls but there are definitely a few bugs to fix. Calls are consistently dropped and messages will sometimes not send through. Hoping the bugs get fixed with future updates.
Secure and Syncs Across multiple OSs 5/5
By Ev P Ande
This app is a full featured messaging/voice chat app that syncs well across multiple operating systems. I’m using it seamlessly
On iOS, macOS, and Windows 10. The open source nature with excellent encryption is a necessary in the current technological climate, and I’m glad these guys and gals have created an app that supports this need and is incredibly user friendly.
Great for communicating 5/5
Not much else to say
Worked fine until update 3/5
How do you even send a video anymore? Recording stopped? Annoyed
Almost There 3/5
So far appears to be a solid app, but it needs a setting that allows it to lock every time I navigate away from it, forcing me to re-enter the code. It’s still not as secure as it should be.
A great messaging app that actually works and is private! 5/5
I’ve tried them all, but this is the first messaging app that actually works great and is verifiably encrypted end-to-end, making it as private as one can expect in over-the-air communications! Messaging, voice and video calling, disappearing message capability and, best of all, decent privacy without 3rd parties constantly monitoring your communication.
Good day 5/5
Very nice app
New update crashing 1/5
As the title say, the new update is making the app crash on startup and not receiving messages
Needs iPad Compatibility 4/5
Great app except: Lacks iPad compatibility and multiple mobile device authorization.
Better security 5/5
I learned of this application during an online workshop. I immediately implemented it to use with clients.
Sus but in a good way 5/5
Love the sus vibes
Best messaging app 5/5
Besides the best security, the usability is perfect and has all the required functions in the right places.
The app *was* great 1/5
The changes to the camera are a disaster. You have to hold the camera button down now to film video. If you film video using the regular iOS app, it freezes while trying to transfer the video. Plus the still photo interface is totally counter intuitive now. On top of that, it doesn’t show you the person you’re sending the image to before you send it. That was a great way to avoid accidents with secure information. Why break something that was working perfectly fine, signal team????
No like button 3/5
No like button, need validation in group chats when you post a banger meme
Needs one additional feature 4/5
One feature that is missing that would be great is a timer built in to the camera.

Great, but missing two things for me 4/5
I love the UI and features of Signal. Feels more secure than the rest of the competition, and almost feels native to iPhone. The timer on messages is useful & I’ve got a some of my friends using it now too. Two things I wish it had for a 5 star rating: Auto-Dark Mode & an easier way to Reply to a specific message in a group chat. By Auto-Dark Mode, like another app I have that does it, I mean for dark mode to be turned on when it’s the local evening time (after 6 or 7 PM) and for it to be off in the morning (7 AM?). Also, I don’t like that I have to hold my finger on a message to Reply to it in a group chat. Need something more efficient/quick. Maybe a double tap or swipe? Add both of these features, and it’s a perfect 5-star App for me!
So so quality 3/5
I find that the voice quality is lower than WhatsApp.
good for reasons, but needs improvement still 3/5
for privacy reasons this app is great. the only problem that i’ve been having since I have started using it has been that the messages don’t always get to the person i’m talking to when I sent the message, vice versa, I won’t receive messages either. I thought after the update I wouldn’t have this problem but just two days ago I received a message 3 hours after the person had sent it, and you can see when they actually sent the message too so it’s even more frustrating when the main problem is exactly what is necessary for the app to be successful.
It helps underground churches a lot 5/5
By Signal in China
In a huge anti Christian country in Asia, there are many underground churches. The government have been using social network to spotlight pastors there. Thanks to Signal for helping those pastors to communicate freely.
Issue when sending a photo ⚠️ 2/5
The preview of the photo you intend to send is all distorted/warped/
The recipient however sees the picture proper.
I love signal 5/5
By Kushal One
I love it!
Poor Ui 1/5
Dysfunctional user interface and no recovery backup on iPhone
Great App, Not Amazing 4/5
Here’s what I like:
- Mostly Simple
- Custom Alert Tones
Here what I’d like:
- More UI Customization
- Custom Vibrations
- The sent/delivered/read icons need revamping
- The “new message” line seems very 2005
Great app but PLEASE update iPad UI for iPad Pro! 4/5
Can’t complain with this app. It does exactly what you need it to do, and until now I’ve been running it on all my devices. I just bought an iPad Pro and the iOS version of Signal seems to be made just for iPhones because the app needs to be blown up and turned pixelated and letterboxed for it to work properly. It also seems to have problems detecting the iPad’s orientation when I have it opened out with a keyboard. If you can update the UI for iPad this will be a perfect app and I’ll change the review to 5 stars. Please!
Please figure out a way to make it work with iPad as secondary 3/5
I have my iPad on a data only plan, and my iPhone as my main device. Can you please figure out a way to allow iPad as a secondary device, or a main device (sort of like desktop devices). Right now its unusable because it wants my number.
Easy to use! Secure! Perfect!
Need vibration 4/5
Need vibration as alternative for a notifcation.

Losing WhatsApp and messenger 5/5
Thank you signal for respecting the individual
Messages arrive in different order on different devices 4/5
Great app! Wishlist:
1) Make sure messages (both send and received) arrive in the same order on different devices (iPhone and Mac). Now they often don’t.
1) Please allow to switch themes based on time of day automatically.
2) iPad app!
Great times 5/5
Aloha. This is a great app
