    @DannyCasst You know your iPhone is the problem for sending SMS in the first place. Install @signalapp and you too can have private messages for Apple & Android devices.

  • tcely Chris Ely ⚛☢️💉😷🗳️ | #EndDST (@tcely) reported

    @JuneOkal Apple made terrible choices compared to @signalapp.

  • tcely Chris Ely ⚛☢️💉😷🗳️ | #EndDST (@tcely) reported

    @anpandoh As with a lot of poor decisions Apple makes it should not be anything Android users know or care about. AirTags and iMessage are the two problems Apple created for everyone that didn't buy devices they made. AirGuard (from @seemoolab) & @signalapp are practically required now.

  • tcely Chris Ely ⚛☢️💉😷🗳️ | #EndDST (@tcely) reported

    @mstk24192859 iOS + RCS won't solve this problem. It's just an upgrade to SMS after all. Try @signalapp for encrypted messages that work for both iOS and Android.

  • ernestognw Ξrnesto | ernestognw.eth 🦇🔊 (@ernestognw) reported

    @mengeroshi @signalapp Whisper basically died because of the lack of incentives to turn it on while running an eth node. It's pretty old. Same happend to Swarm (IPFS like storage). @ethstatus was one of the main Whisper adopters, but they deprecated it in favor of a custom messaging service

  • Vespasianvs1 Andy 🏳️‍🌈🇪🇺💙 (@Vespasianvs1) reported

    @signalapp having a problem with 5.30.0. I can send individual photos but as soon as I try to select multiple photos from my gallery and press send, it closes the send message but nothing actually happens. Tried with multiple recipients and different images.

  • NickNewisle Niklas Nyholm (@NickNewisle) reported

    @signalapp Calls are very unreliable. I have issues with many contacts. Same problem; calls don't ring on the receiving end, even if the dial tone is heard on my end. Sometimes that call will arrive (ring) hours later, but if answered, nobody there. Happens on Android and iOS.

  • tcely Chris Ely ⚛☢️💉😷🗳️ | #EndDST (@tcely) reported

    @wheelsee It doesn't work. Sending SMS is not a reasonable thing to do. For @signalapp, all the information you hand over is your phone number. Your default app is causing the problem.

  • presentservices Matt "Mookie" Thayer (@presentservices) reported

    @moxie A few of us have an issue... @signalapp is not receiving or updating certain contacts (2-3 people) until the signal app is opened then we get all at once. Can't trust that Signal is going to update/notify us anymore. Tried messing with notifications and reinstalling. Halp?

  • TerraPhoenixDes Dave Boehnlein (@TerraPhoenixDes) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp Took a look, but didn't see my issue. Do you know if there is a way to send an SMS via Signal even if the recipient is a Signal user (i.e. bypass the encryption and send an unencrypted SMS on purpose)?

  • tcely Chris Ely ⚛☢️💉😷🗳️ | #EndDST (@tcely) reported

    @jayn01a Did you install @signalapp on your iPhone? Just switching is contributing to the problem Apple created.

  • hannabroad1 Hannah Gaz (@hannabroad1) reported

    @signalapp I'm having trouble with my app and trying to get help. How can I reach your customer service?

  • TechTheory21 Larry (@TechTheory21) reported

    @moxie @0xcharlie you should create an email service that private like @signalapp

  • taeateit Tae Mcgrew (@taeateit) reported

    @signalapp My messages weren't sending, they were just showing the loading circle forever so I deleted and reinstalled the app. Now it is saying it is sending me a verification code but I am not receiving the code to my normal sms. What can I do to resolve this? Please help, thx.

  • toholdaquill J.M. Porup (@toholdaquill) reported

    Help me out here--a study a few years ago showed how easy it was to mitm Signal if users don't verify each other. My DDG-fu is failing me. Anyone? #infosec @signalapp

  • Popspowa Powaaa 💫 (@Popspowa) reported

    Hey @signalapp i have a problem, how can i get help?

  • SugandhMishra2 🇮🇳Sugandh Mishra🇮🇳 (@SugandhMishra2) reported

    @signalapp Msgs are sent from android device but being received on ios, facing this issue from last 4-5 days

  • Nascostoeyes Nascosto Eyes (@Nascostoeyes) reported

    @signalapp Will Signal ever make Email service like Proton Mail in the future.

  • KitOConnell Kit O'Connell (They/He) (@KitOConnell) reported

    Start with @signalapp, a pretty safe and useful app that's easy to learn. Some other apps may be useful as replacements for Slack/Discord, like @matrixdotorg ... @jitsinews is an option for video chat, but some folks have trouble getting it to work.

  • kit2282 KaKit2282 (@kit2282) reported

    @signalapp Please help to transfer the chat records from Android to iOS...Many memorable records store in my Samsung phone....But I'm going to change a iPhone... Please help to develop a method to do this

  • RyanZohoury Ryan Zohoury (@RyanZohoury) reported

    @GailAlfarATX @signalapp What if signal goes down too? 👀

  • Oakeslaw Peter Oakes (@Oakeslaw) reported

    @dj_dule @signalapp Yes, you are right. My error completely. Will repost with correct handle. Sorry Signal.

  • mike_rayco Mike Rayco (@mike_rayco) reported

    I think @signalapp is down.

  • estoydelpasado Del Pasado (@estoydelpasado) reported

    @signalapp seems to be down here in the Philippines.

  • QuintessenceAnx Quintessence {🥑/} (@QuintessenceAnx) reported

    Anyone else on iOS (14) having issues with @SignalApp messages only loading / notifications not sending unless the app is open? I've already re-registered for push notifications. 🤔

  • sthulb Simon Thulbourn (@sthulb) reported

    @signalapp any known issues in Europe with fetching messages? Seeing some slow interactions
