  • AvinashPant Avinash Pant (@AvinashPant) reported

    @signalapp Uninstalled it after 3 months today only because getting critical verification codes was always a big issue with Signal. For one transaction I didn't get the verification code even after 5 attempts. That was the final straw. Otherwise loved the app.

  • glenlivingston5 GLiv (@glenlivingston5) reported

    @signalapp are you having server problems right now?My GF iPhone keeps crashing everytime she opens the app. Airplane mode helps keep the app open but there seems to be a connectivity problem causing the crash. Please help if you can?They are trying to move their family chat over

  • ItsTheRealKR ItsTheRealKR (@ItsTheRealKR) reported

    @signalapp Hi Signal, please fix these following things in your app! 1)When Video Calling or Voice Calling, I noticed the icons and their options are a little bugged - the speaker icon is in white and the speaker is automatically on. Please fix this.

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @mehdiirandossst @signalapp And I wish we didn't need a phone number to register anymore. Then it would be rid the problem immediately. @moxie

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @mehdiirandossst @signalapp Why not? Whats your problem?

  • ShaswatJena Shaswat Jena (@ShaswatJena) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp And to answer your queries, yes I did try to use Signal and make it as my primary chat app by bringing in my friends/ people I text quite frequently on WhatsApp but the #NetworkEffect as we know has umpteen moving parts which makes it hard to fix!

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @Soheil_rf @signalapp Yes, they hear you. And I hope that they will soon have an answer to your problems.

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @pranavom8 @signalapp The problem is already known. This always affects only your smartphone. Your contact sees the images correctly. Normally, the images are then also displayed correctly after you restart.

  • DethVeggie Deth Veggie (@DethVeggie) reported

    @notameadow @__apf__ @signalapp Well I use it for both. I've not had an issue with messages not showing up one one end or the other! At least, not as far as I know, anyway.

  • DethVeggie Deth Veggie (@DethVeggie) reported

    @notameadow @__apf__ @signalapp What do you mean "disappear texts"? Very occasionally I see problems sync'ing between the desktop and mobile apps, but the message always persists on at least one of the versions.

  • eaoliver Dr. Earl Oliver (@eaoliver) reported

    @signalapp I can't for the life of me figure out how to delete 'Documents'. Annoying that cached 'Documents' aren't expired alongside other media. Any help?

  • achilles_620 Chris (@achilles_620) reported

    @signalapp hey! Having issues with signal. Authentication is slow and I am having issues receiving messages from non-signal users. Was there an update that's affecting my app? Even when I click to download the message, it's not coming through.

  • JJha02726051 J Jha (@JJha02726051) reported

    @moxie @signalapp Have a look into this issue @moxie

  • 0xAlexandros so-called AP (@0xAlexandros) reported

    @Viber @signalapp Thanks for the example, but highlighting just one innocuous use case doesn’t help me understand what data you collect and sell to third parties.

  • pa3weg Wouter 🛰️ (@pa3weg) reported

    - Staying supports Facebook as unethical tech giant. I don't want this. I'm on @signalapp if you want to continue chatting, and I have been there for years. The only outage I ever encountered was last month, as people started running to Signal en masse to ditch WhatsApp

  • 20Sonu21 Sonu (@20Sonu21) reported

    @signalapp A problem I'm facing since yesterday. Signed in my mother's gmail on my phone and her contact lists is synced with my signal. Now I am unable to delete/rename my contact list. Give more options to manage contacts on signal.

  • mightbekaren Some Sort of Karen (@mightbekaren) reported from Seattle, Washington

    Ok does anyone else that uses Signal have this issue where you can't send photos properly? Like they just come up black? Sometimes restarting helps but not forever... @signalapp halp

  • pyrrhl pyrrh: high emprex of excessive *** commits ♿ (@pyrrhl) reported

    @signalapp if i mute a conversation i don't want it to have a notification badge inside the app. i don't want it to pop back to the top of my messages. i want it MUTED so that i don't see it and it's not bothering me. Please fix this, "here's a visual reminder" is NOT muting.

  • netzverweigerer Armin (@netzverweigerer) reported

    @F52C877B @signalapp That's actually wrong on multiple levels, so let's debunk this. First of all, this isn't SIP. The clients don't communicate with each other. The whole communication is still going onto some centralized entity. That's absolutely a privacy issue, even with E2E.

  • F52C877B Arcaik (@F52C877B) reported

    @netzverweigerer @signalapp The server is mainly used to put people together, but everything in Signal is end to end encrypted, so there’s not much the server can access (and they don’t even store the PII they could access). This is a philosophy issue, not a security/privacy one (yet).

  • netzverweigerer Armin (@netzverweigerer) reported

    @F52C877B @signalapp The problem I personally see with Signal is that there's zero evidence that their claims are right. You use a centralized service, at least the server part is not auditable, and that's it. Provable trustworthiness looks different to me.

  • TwitchiH Richard "RichiH" Hartmann (@TwitchiH) reported

    @MetalMatze @signalapp I would not want to rely on just that; and it also does magically fix the rest. Still good to use it, though.

  • banannaomi ᴀnna ɴaomi (@banannaomi) reported

    . @signalapp i honestly love Signal but i'm so tired of the constant "Error handling incoming message" weirdness 😭😭

  • V4Wouter Wouter Jacobs #notcoolman (@V4Wouter) reported

    Can I delete @signalapp app now? Has the world calmed down about the whole @WhatsApp thing?

  • AndreasChenBVB Andreas華語BVB (@AndreasChenBVB) reported

    @signalapp Hi Signal, new users in China are having difficulties registering. After filling in mobile numbers it goes into an infinite circling without sending a verification code. Using a VPN solves the issue. Has the verification server been blocked by the Chinese firewall?

  • cassandranewd cassandra (@cassandranewd) reported

    @PaulGamblePhD @WhatsApp @signalapp After 3 weeks of emailing WhatsApp support service I got no response from them until someone referred me to jizzydev on Instagram and he help me recover my hacked WhatsApp account I advise you contact him immediately

  • TEUNOOM pizza tonno (@TEUNOOM) reported

    @signalapp I'm seeing more and more people getting spammed by random numbers on Signal. Are you aware of this problem and are you working on a solution?

  • Roijab_ Rodrigo Jara (@Roijab_) reported

    Hey @signalapp! My girlfriend and I have been having problems with the app. Messages don't arrive or arrive several minutes after we send it. You know why this can be happening?

  • druidian I)ruid (@druidian) reported

    @alkalinered Agreed. It's a privacy and safety issue. At most it should be opt-in behavior. @signalapp

  • RN4LGGMU ⚡️♌️ℹ️🎋🅰️®️ (@RN4LGGMU) reported

    @signalapp please fix bugs. Receiving messages after two days.
