  • ThisIsMissEm Emelia 👸🏻 (@ThisIsMissEm) reported

    Hey @signalapp, could you please fix the whole call thing on iOS so I don't accidentally hang up on my girlfriend when I lock my phone? Cause that's really annoying and rude

  • Laurenebridges Lauren Bridges (@Laurenebridges) reported

    @theDiverge @signalapp what's worse, it stayed the same on the desktop app (colors for those you're in conversation with, white for user) so now my brain is broken switching between my phone and computer. who am I? who am I speaking to? @signalapp please help us😩

  • Midori_Magma Midori Magma (@Midori_Magma) reported

    Dear @signalapp The colour changes you made to group chats are terrible. Please give us the option of putting the old colours back.

  • r00p35h r00p35h (@r00p35h) reported

    1000+ Group member, @signalapp I think large the group is leads misuse of app like fb and other other service. None talks to not more than 50 or 100 members in year through messages whom share their personal or work phone number with.

  • spookeymo1 kiddo sinner (@spookeymo1) reported

    @signalapp I noticed even when the "seen" option is turned off, if I'm watching the chat I can see when someone has read the messages. the chat shifts slightly when it happens. you might wanna fix it because it defeats the whole purpose of having it off

  • Manisha95111619 Manisha (@Manisha95111619) reported

    @signalapp I am forget passphrase . So how restore my pervious data plz help

  • DjPepsi B to the L, the A, the C-King (@DjPepsi) reported

    @signalapp hey 👋🏾 I have been having a serious issue with video calls on the app. I am unable to hear anything from the speakers on my iPhone. Please msg back

  • realemilyolivia Emily Olivia (@realemilyolivia) reported

    @signalapp is there a way to reverse this color change? Like why after years of having the received bubbles colored would you just switch? Plus now group chat members are harder to distinguish from one another. This seems intentionally confusing. Help?

  • SethEdward Seth Edward (@SethEdward) reported

    @signalapp Any plans to fix the user interface changes debacle? Maybe a user selection option to not make every conversation color a grey mess? Thanks!

  • Dhanendrasing16 Dhanendra pratap singh (@Dhanendrasing16) reported

    @signalapp How can i import sms database to signal? Can anybody help me

  • DatasureDigital Datasure Digital (@DatasureDigital) reported

    For those encountering the @signalapp Link Error Joining via this link failed. Try joining again later. message when attempting the join a Signal Group, the fix is to update your root mobile device to the latest OS and to update your Signal app to the latest version.

  • seekdivinetruth Social & political dissident Activist Ⓥ🌎🐘✊🏼☮️👀 (@seekdivinetruth) reported

    @signalapp I LOVE your app but after another one of Apple‘s damn updates it deleted the app even though it was backed up & now all my threads are gone. Reached out for help but haven’t heard back yet. I have messages from people that have crossed over. Please help me recover them 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼

  • doctornick_99 Nick O'Teen (@doctornick_99) reported

    @BBCNews #DeleteWhatsapp #DeleteFacebook Use @signalapp problem solved.

  • alder_noun _ (@alder_noun) reported

    Hey @signalapp, I have a doubt, (Case 1) If a person cleared data or uninstalled the signal app. On re-login, Could the messages still be retrieved, if the password is forgotten?

  • r00p35h r00p35h (@r00p35h) reported

    .@moxie @signalapp Does foundation is thinking about signal email service? ,world need OWS E2EE email.

  • annehunte Anne Hunte (@annehunte) reported

    @signalapp seems like you are down

  • Getthegalaxy Me (@Getthegalaxy) reported

    @signalapp Is anyone knowing a lot about apps here? Could this work? To fix the problems with Android @Signalapp notifications they could create a mechanism to keep the app awake sending a code to a server every 10mins. It will fix battery optimisations apps. Am I right?

  • Elmernite Kenneth LeBlanc (@Elmernite) reported

    @signalapp You have completely ruined Signal with this new color update. It is a terrible UI and I hope to find a different communication app. It makes threads with multiple people completely unusable. It also makes my personal threads far less readable.

  • bradsilverberg Brad Silverberg (@bradsilverberg) reported

    @signalapp -- the desktop app doesn't work on the new M1 iMac (current MacOS version, current Signal desktop app version). On startup: Database startup error: Error: Error: Integrity check failed: *** in database main *** It works on my M1 MacBook Air but not the new iMac.

  • tahnikm Tahnik Mustasin (@tahnikm) reported

    As much as I love @signalapp, they really need to fix their desktop app. A lot of time it just doesn’t load itself or doesn’t load the messages correctly. Hoping they sort it out soon.

  • RealSexyCyborg Naomi Wu 机械妖姬 (@RealSexyCyborg) reported

    @djchateau @signalapp The primary issue was just notifying users- like you do when you tell them to use a complex password. The refused for over a year. Now Signal is blocked in China so there's not much problem.

  • skyfaller Nelson Pavlosky | Mastodon: (@skyfaller) reported

    @mikeyil @signalapp Signal is the least secure messaging app except for all of the others. But yes, in all seriousness they really should stop broadcasting when people sign up, you're not the first person to mention this problem.

  • Grewal559 Sunny Grewal (@Grewal559) reported

    @signalapp Please fix recording issues. We are group of truckers and we switched from whatsapp to @signalapp. We use voice recordings instead of typing. On whatsapp we can record with our Bluetooth headsets and in signal it doesn't work. Can you plz bring an update. Also bring status option

  • gomaigrir chat 🦥 (@gomaigrir) reported

    @signalapp hey, i need help pls

  • Phoul Colin Childs (@Phoul) reported

    @signalapp this change is terrible, please consider rolling back. Why would you make a UX change that creates so much more difficulty identifying who is talking.

  • JeevanMaradi Jeevan Maradi | ಜೀವನ್ ಮರಡಿ (@JeevanMaradi) reported

    @signalapp I am not finding a Chrome extension, can you please help me with this?

  • tierracultivada MJ (@tierracultivada) reported

    @DeckerSpectre @signalapp i think whatsapp is better because it works over wifi. then cut you service and disappear when needed

  • DivaBiotech Ruby Gadelrab (@DivaBiotech) reported

    Just checked on @signalapp and there are exactly ZERO investors listed in Austin investing in #digitalhealth. This is either an error or a huge opportunity.

  • FoleyPLEXLLC FPX (@FoleyPLEXLLC) reported

    @signalapp why can't I send video? Or I seem limited...its not my phone company...ill stop on this app why am I limited? I send the same thing on whatsapp,no problem, email no problem, why? Why? Do you limit its clearly your app limits, Why? It's so annoying...

  • seanieb Seanie Byrne (@seanieb) reported

    Feature suggestions for @signalapp @moxie. If a message is undelivered for over two weeks, send a generic SMS to the recipient telling them. It’s probably due to them uninstall the app or some other technical issue.
