Reviews From google play store

I feel safer using it. Too much privacy is invaded these days.


Very private texting app


Wonderful app


Pretty easy to use


the App works alright. PC Software doesn't show older messages. Transferring phones is rather impractical, or at least nowhere near as convenient and quick than with Telegram. Lately I got lots of "Notes to self" saying "bad encrypted message"... overall a rather clumsy environment.


Best


Like the privacy.


Must have


No flash in camera


Good


Best text app!


It good


Not great at sharing videos as it doesnt have the capacity to hold more than 30seconds or so. Very simple but good for privacy


Easy use


Great app!


Love this app!


My calls are not going through.😑


This has become my primary texting application. Convincing friends and family to switch is a challenge, but for those that don't, this app will still send standard SMS to non users.


App will no longer make calls still good for messages


Brilliant app seems very secure


Nice


V.G


nice app, but the design and logo just look awful. none of my friends even considers it for this reason


One of the few apps these days that does not police on everything you type or say. It makes it harder for others to spy on you too.


Could be way more secure


Great app.


Group messages did not import over from verizon messenger. Sending pics on fb messenger is more user friendly. Creating new group chats is not as easy as other apps. Everything else is great.


So far so good...


👍🏻


works good and is open source


This app is perfect for texting to everybody and if somebody else happens to have this app running you sent to them fully encrypted. I activly advise this app to all of my friends


F Good


Just awesome! On top of the added security, it feels faster than other messenger apps I've used.


Great


Awesome


Gotta love that good encryption


Very nice. Easy to use. Enjoying the dark mode.


Excellent


Great for sms and private/encoded messaging. I have had one issue and that was after updating to android 9 on LG V30. SMS was coming in on messaging app which was disabled but I had to send on Signal which wasn't receiving any text. Reboot didn't work. Went to default setting and Signal was set as default. Set Messaging as default, then set Signal as default again and everything working fine.


Good


It's secure, does what it promises.


I love it great app I found this app on YouTube about security and privacy on Android


Great app. Would definitely be improved by not having to completely reset when you get a new device


Very useful, simple app


Great


This has proven to be a great way to communicate with people, all while minimizing the possibility of prying eyes, and ears!!


The amount of time my phone rings when someone trys calling me is ridiculous. If you could cut the time in half it would be perfect. The app rings for a solid minute, cut that down to 15-20 seconds please. Also a option to put the calls on mute would be nice. My phone vibrates for a solid minute when I'm getting a call and there is no way for me to stop it unless I reject the call. Also while I'm in a call I can't keep my screen off. I turn my screen off in a call and it just goes right back on.


Excellent -no problems -no adds - best free encrytion message app i have found.


It stopped sending me notifications for new messages. I went to advanced option to set push notifications and it's not there. The only time I see new messages is when I open the app.


Excellent service. Better than regular text message


Good app, secured


Respects your privacy, is fast, has all the features of WhatsApp without any of the spyware. 10/10 would crypto with again


Sometimes receive the same text from the same person twice. Not often but still annoying. Otherwise a great app.


Good


Great and secure communication app. Simple and easy to use


Good reception and very fast connection


I cannot import backup from newer version of signal inspite of having the 30 digit number. I need solution regarding this.


Totally brilliant. Send in safety


Pretty darn good


Good


Def a private conversation


Great secure and encrypted messaging app. Thank you. Just bringing something to your attention, the audio and video calls are not very clear with a weak signal, and breaks up a lot; Google Duo is much better for clearer audio and video calls. Please improve this. Also, there are no thumbnail previews for any links; at least YouTube URLs used to show a thumbnail preview before the most recent update, but not anymore.


Love this app! By far the best messaging app, not only for serious security & privacy, but the clean UI, iMessage-like chat bubbles, clean interface, and extra features that fully bridge the gap between Android & iPhone. Only app that puts keyboard in incognito mode! Wish more people would use it already! It's also the only app that consolidates with option to use as SMS Text app. I see more people joining recently, hopefully this keeps going. Btw this is basically hidden in the app store now!


Good app up until now


Great


Great, but MMS doesn't work on Android 10 with Google Fi. Please fix!


Efficient, no problems


Great


Service is the best love it


😻😻😻 it's really helpful.


Very satisfied with its performance. Thank you


Excellend


Pretty good app. Nice short terms and conditions. I use this rather than WhatsApp.


Excellent


Great


So far so good (the feds could't find me)


Amazing no ads or no spying software


Works well has all features you would want


Stupid


Pretty good


call quality is great and product security appears sound


Everything is great except when I change to a new phone and couldn't restore my save text messages help please!


Solid application


Great app 👍👍👍👍👍


Excelent 👍👍


August 2019stops working till you update. idk. is it a way to force n update or why it stops working. Got for the purpose of security and taking advantage of encryption. I can't send videos. i like calling with it. Now again in October same prob..something stops working so u hv to update. It can use some improvement but i like it though it still needs more options.


No issues,video calling is very good.


I like it


Terrible design philosophy and an overall annoyance to use. The biggest issue with signal is their moral opposition to allowing any message storing on the SD card. This means the app will bloat to multiple gigabytes over normal usage as it stores all of your messages. If you don't like it, you can delete old messages. No way to back them up though. You have to have the actual messages on your internal storage to back them up to the SD card. The developers refuse to allow Signal to be on SD.


Great for privacy. I love the wifi compatibility for calls and texts. Would rate 5 stars if there were a few adjustments. Ability to not only delete messages onmy phone but also messages that ive sent to other people. And inside the app have the option to disguise my phone number in the app so the person im texting can access it but it is not regularly available to anyone who opens the app. It would be nice to have this disguised in the app on other phones if u want


Nice


Very functional and straightforward, although moving to a new phone was a bit of a pain.


Great


Seems to work ok. But i dont know if my messages are safe now or not. Suppose no one really knows


Really a good app for making a secured call.. Love it..


Love this app, all works seamlessly!


إمتياز


Wonderful


One of my favorite chats and texting apps. Love all of the features and the encryption.


best app ever used

Allows the app to get your precise location using the Global Positioning System (GPS) or network location sources such as cell towers and Wi-Fi.
