  • ambimorph L. Amber O'Hearn 🛡 (@ambimorph) reported

    I'm having a usability problem with @signalapp that just bit me for the third time. Signal is my default texting app and it has the very nice behaviour that if the recipient has Signal, the message is sent encrypted, and if they don't, it falls back to SMS. However, 1/6

  • HobbitsWife Hobbits Wife 💙 (@HobbitsWife) reported

    @signalapp parents and brother on Android and are having problems receiving notifications when they have messages so keep missing them. Working fine on iPhone. Any bugs logged for this?

  • prem82528 Prem Bhati (@prem82528) reported

    @signalapp download very good app What's app again and again shutting down @WhatsApp unstall very soon

  • SiliconShecky Shecky - The Unknown (((Mike))) (@SiliconShecky) reported

    @cillic @youngd241 @signalapp The show them how, write them instead of public, and tell them technically based on their code how without breaking their system. Their blog flat out states they want a better solution and want people to help. I don't have the tech chops to do that.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    @SiliconShecky @youngd241 @signalapp Its all about consent. I can get your contact information and add it to my phone without your consent. And then signal will let me know if you're using it for secure coms. Again, it's a terrible practice for an ap that says its about privacy.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    @SiliconShecky @youngd241 @signalapp But this doesn't say ANYTHING about people not being notified when I joined. THAT is the privacy issue.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    For the billionth time. @signalapp, as a privacy company, informing me (and therefore informing others of me) using Signal without their or my consent is terribly tone deaf. I like your ap despite is problems. But this one is easy to fix. Please stop this.

  • MikeRSpencer Mike Spencer (@MikeRSpencer) reported

    @WillBall12 @rushworth_a I'm using @signalapp. There's a slow trickle of people joining, with spikes related to news series of dastardly WhatsApp. But network effects are always an issue for folk migrating. A pita that it's not possible to message between providers.

  • le_pista Cristian, el de las piedras de Georgia (@le_pista) reported

    @signalapp guys something is not working properly, all of my messages have a delay, impossible to hold a conversation with the counterpart, the delay is random and annoying, not the first time seeing this. Colombia.

  • Marj Marjan Safinia (@Marj) reported

    @signalapp I’m no longer getting push notification on iPhone no matter how many times I check my settings, reregister for push notifications, update my app or restart my phone. It renders the app pretty dysfunctional if I have to open it to see I have a message. Help!

  • t56k_ thomas (@t56k_) reported

  • MJ_Madhi Madhi (@MJ_Madhi) reported

  • ruslanebilov191 ruslanebilov1986 (@ruslanebilov191) reported

    @firefox @MarcoPoloApp @signalapp Hi please help me to restore my Firefox account. I have enabled 2-Step Verification. But I accidentally uninstalled the 2-Step Verification app. Now I can’t return it in any way. When I write the login and password it requires two-step authentication. Help get your account back

  • essdas Saurabh Das (@essdas) reported

    @signalapp need to log off from the Signal desktop app (Mac). Can't find the logout feature anywhere! Help!

  • lz_2008_sec LinZin Leung_Sec (@lz_2008_sec) reported

    @signalapp @telegram Hello, Signal Team, Telegram Team! I am facing a problem recently, I am choosing whether to use Signal or Telegram, Signal are safety it have no option to hide my phone number. Telegram have but it not safe enough. Which one should I choose?

  • kiwipeso Andrew McPherson - fully 5G Pfizered (@kiwipeso) reported

    @eey0re Ahem. @signalapp is shite. The protocol is borked, and their not clued in on how to fix it. Also, really dumb to base id to a phone number.

  • Eko10979285 Eko (@Eko10979285) reported

  • OHLLRN Charlie O'Halloran (@OHLLRN) reported

  • gregoa 🔴️🔥️👾️ SGH 25 (@gregoa) reported

    Is @signalapp down? Seems like.

  • Florian_Petry Florian Petry (@Florian_Petry) reported

    @signalapp Signal App stopped working. Reinstalled and now restore is Not working. Is there a way to check the backup integrity? Can I rescue my 3 Gib of data somehow. 😐

  • heenamodi Heena Modi Ⓥ 🌱 (@heenamodi) reported

    Dear @signalapp I created a group on Signal and somehow it's added landline numbers for those who have a mobile number saved in the same contact. It says it's an insecure MMS group, there's no admin and I can't remove members or delete the group. Help?

  • BaghdadBrian Brian Conley (@BaghdadBrian) reported

    @signalapp I'm seeing a different issue, contacts inside signal don't appear, or when opening a thread the messages don't show or take a moment to appear and outgoing messages are disappearing without sending...

  • Avieshek Avieshek (@Avieshek) reported

    @rdoubleoc @signalapp Considering the stated above - How is this the same problem on Telegram? It has achieved @discord at mobile levels that includes average users i.e. everyone instead of a niche section of the society. Now, am I suppose to do with Signal - send nudes likes Snapchat? Transactions?

  • darbujaan Mr. X (@darbujaan) reported

    Hello @signalapp I have BIG problem with your app #Signal on android device. Everything was fine. Hell started yesterday. "Conversation session updated" keeps appearing on conversations, and no messages are delivered. Any fix❓

  • Underground_USA Underground USA (@Underground_USA) reported

    @signalapp Is your service down? No connectivity in Chicago or Pensacola but can text thru regular SMS

  • rdoubleoc Where is Brian Laundrie? (@rdoubleoc) reported

    @Avieshek @signalapp @telegram At least with Signal, the internet is taken out of the equation, and all of it's security issues. Idk what you mean. They had bugs and vectors before, but so has every other app... Including telegram.

  • rdoubleoc Where is Brian Laundrie? (@rdoubleoc) reported

    @Avieshek @signalapp @telegram ? You're going to have the same problems with Telegram, if not more.

  • hajj_usif Baki (@hajj_usif) reported

    @signalapp your app seems to be down 😕

  • DrishtantR Drishtant 🌟 (@DrishtantR) reported

    @HarpSilver @PurposelyPixel @signalapp I know signal is better and telegram has best chatting experience on earth for me, but the problem is "WITH WHOM WILL I CHAT". There is basically no one on signal or telegram from friends and family. College groups etc run on whatsapp. So its my necessity not really my preference

  • WilliamJozef Bill J.👨🏻‍💻 (@WilliamJozef) reported

    @signalapp any plans for making jt possible for a sender to determine if a send message should ping the other side, or just be a “silent message” (no matter how the receiver configures his settings)? Would help a lot in some chats.
