Signal Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • tmalsburg Titus von der Malsburg (@tmalsburg) reported

    .@signalapp Please provide an option to easily change the language of the spell checker in Signal desktop. More than half of the world population is bi/multilingual, so you can't just fix the language to the OS default.

  • cenan_ku Cenan 🦅 (@cenan_ku) reported

    @crazybob @mobilecoin @signalapp Well, performance might be understandable but what’s the issue with #Monero’s privacy?

  • indutny 🇺🇦 indutny (@indutny) reported

    @justindross @signalapp Signal Desktop developer here. Sorry about that. From the size of the app I presume that you just installed it on your macOS system. While we won’t be able to match the size of native Messages app, the size of the Signal should drop down to ~350MB after next update /1

  • hiddenpvnk 𝒜𝓈𝓉𝓇𝒶 𝒟𝓇𝑒𝓇𝓎𝑒𝓃 (Tłusta ulana świnia 🐖) (@hiddenpvnk) reported

    @signalapp I understand. I didn’t knew how she’s using Signal and I’ll try to fix that. I was trying to block them (done) and report but was not able so I’ve written here. Sorry for bothering you. Regards and thank you for help. You guys are still best communication app.

  • prius_racer Prius Racer (@prius_racer) reported

    @Android Well if you want more a more secure and private chat app, install @signalapp on iOS and Android. Problem solved.

  • KieranDNolan Kieran Nolan (@KieranDNolan) reported

    @session_app I would pay for the service!... #LightningNetwork integration would be cool at some point too - this is where @signalapp seriously dropped the ball (as well as the kyc factor hehe)

  • j9t Jens Oliver Meiert (@j9t) reported

    Spent a couple of hours optimizing social markup. @WhatsApp and @SignalApp still with problems detecting “og:image” if not in quotes. Also, @LinkedIn not finding social markup if there’s no <head> tag. Both is valid HTML. Our field can be so pathetic.

  • daemontus Samuel Pastva (@daemontus) reported

    @ProchazkaFilip @signalapp @Tailscale That is not to say that good self-hosted services don’t exist, but its still a bit hit-or-miss. Plus the options to move your data from one provider to another are always terrible because everybody knows that it makes it easier for you to leave.

  • sway3546 Josue Morales (@sway3546) reported

    @signalapp are y'all experiencing issues? At about 3:00 Central time today I haven't been able to send any text messages to anyone unless they have the signal app as well too. Everything is up to date and I tried restarting my phone and nothing is working.

  • Ashuchauhan199 Ashish Chauhan (@Ashuchauhan199) reported

    @signalapp please launch premium subscription service like telegram premium.

  • lboggan88 iBoggan (@lboggan88) reported

    @signalapp why aren’t videos uploading? Problem persisting over the last 18 hours for me.

  • xavaltir Xavaltir (@xavaltir) reported

    @signalapp Had to uninstall signal on my Ipad because it was using crazy amounts of battery life, can you fix this issue so I can reinstall it in the future

  • daemontus Samuel Pastva (@daemontus) reported

    @ProchazkaFilip @signalapp @Tailscale That is not to say that good self-hosted services don’t exist, but its still a bit hit-or-miss. Plus the options to move your data from one provider to another are always terrible because everybody knows that having good migration experience would make it easier for you to leave.

  • DivilYou Casey casey you the divil (@DivilYou) reported

    @signalapp hey I’m trying to link my new@iPhone with only iPhone but it won’t allow me to with the QR code. Help please 🤔

  • Sujith_c_r Sujith Ramachandran (@Sujith_c_r) reported

    @signalapp Is there an outage?

  • Exallium Alex Hart (@Exallium) reported

    @AlecMuffett @signalapp You can find debug logs under Settings -> Help

  • ericsocrat Herakles (@ericsocrat) reported

    @signalapp Group calls are kinda bugged, pls fix... although smooth app overall!

  • jashankj Jashank Jeremy (@jashankj) reported

    I don't want to deal with this entire bloody ecosystem of broken code. But I guess I have to, because @signalapp have carefully built their desktop application atop a steaming pile of non-portable ****.

  • OwPremiere Outwit Premiere (@OwPremiere) reported

    @element_hq i asked before about E2E and bridges. Have you fixed that? Is decryption still going on in the bridges? It's a fix i'm waiting for. This keeps you after @signalapp and @session_app in muy top 3. And i only use one. Thanks!

  • KingOCatss KingOCats (@KingOCatss) reported

    Since Discord no work right now I'm instead chatting to my woman through @signalapp just fine with no problems. Thanks Signal.

  • leonzandman Leon Zandman (@leonzandman) reported

    @PCMag While @durov's b*tching on competing messaging apps gets boring, there is one glaring problem with @signalapp: no official way to backup/export messages on iOS! For years there's drama of people losing years of messages when resetting their iPhones, etc.

  • evahlis Yevgeniy Vahlis (➰,➰) (@evahlis) reported

    @moxie @signalapp Where decentralization starts to break when it comes down to actually using the chains for anything beyond sending tokens between wallets.

  • paulopereira Paulo Pereira (@paulopereira) reported

    @signalapp I have heard friends complain about notifications not working on iOS and it never happened to me but now it started happening. I tried all the suggestions you have and still doesn’t work. It’s random, sometimes it does and sometimes it doesn’t. What can I do?

  • antifaducks ducks against fascism (@antifaducks) reported

    @signalapp are there any known issues for UK based chats. I'm finding that some chats are stuck loading and other people I know are having similar issues.

  • derellgeide Derell Geide (@derellgeide) reported

    Has anyone noticed that @signalapp is way slower since @moxie stepped down?

  • misterbrisko Jorjor (@misterbrisko) reported

    @JeffSolin @Apple @signalapp I wish people in the comments who use signal would help pay for it with a monthly boost or recurring donation.

  • ThisisVeLu_ VeLu (@ThisisVeLu_) reported

    Need help @signalapp

  • paul_havers Paul H (@paul_havers) reported

    @signalapp is there a problem, trying to send message and the circle is spinning and spinning

  • leobenichou Léo Benichou (@leobenichou) reported

    Hello @signalapp I am stuck with a bug while transferring from old to new phone. Can you help please ?

  • holdspacefree Tim Reierson (@holdspacefree) reported

    ...now my sentient phone seems to be lying to me. Notification says "Signal won't work unless you enable Google Play Services". I sent and received texts, so what's not working? @signalapp FYI. @GooglePlayBiz
