    @LeeWoods650 @FortuneMagazine @signalapp Thanks for donating! We don't charge to use the service because not everyone can afford it, and privacy shouldn't be a luxury. The services is more useful the more people use it, so if my friend can't pay I shouldn't be prevented from talking to them privately.

  • LeeWoods650 عبد ال (@LeeWoods650) reported

    @FortuneMagazine I donate to @signalapp monthly, @mer__edith. I don't get why you all can't just charge a monthly subscription to use the service for all users that would cover the cost of running the service and recruiting the best talent.

  • LGradlon Le Roi Gradlon (@LGradlon) reported

    @83bytes @qubit_AT @signalapp the problem is that you dont want to use signal only for other signal users, you want to be able to still send a message to regular sms using people

  • NotsobotAi Notsobot  (@NotsobotAi) reported

    @signalapp @signalapp does google or apple store charge you ~15 % on each donation, if it's the case I would prefer to donate directly. we trust you don't let us down 🫶

  • JohnPCorrea JohnPcorrea (@JohnPCorrea) reported

    @tv01d @qubit_AT @signalapp I believe that the issue is not that SMS is private or not. Anyone knows that SMS is not. BUT is was an easy way to get other people to install #Signal, and then they would start to feel confortable using the app (and would eventually use wifi - Signal).

  • Cryptonic7533 Cryptonic (@Cryptonic7533) reported

    @ricmmorales @signalapp that is one of the factors I consider, yes. Is that a problem?

  • Cowmix cowmix.rss (@Cowmix) reported

    @mer__edith @signalapp By rounding out Android/ChromeOS support, Signal has the opportunity to fix the void that the iMessage <-> Google interoperability problems creates. It would make being a Signal advocate much, much easier and solve a real-world problem.

    @privacytoolsIO If you're not using @signalapp at this point I just don't know how to help you. Like..I can only say it so many times.

  • JAVM94 josé alberto (@JAVM94) reported

    Hi @signalapp i have a problem in the groups: if I reply to a message using voice notes, I can't play it if VoiceOver is activated

  • TristanLudlow10 TristanLudlow10 (@TristanLudlow10) reported

    On Signal @signalapp If someone has blocked you but You send a message to them...What will you see on your end? Normal ? Error message ?

  • VinodColeslaw Vinod Coleslaw (@VinodColeslaw) reported

    I would drop Apple for a @signalapp /@elonmusk/@Twitter phone and messaging service. It would take some acrobatics on my end but in 30 days the pain to switch would be a memory.

  • keseymour keseymour (@keseymour) reported

    @signalapp Are you working on anything to help Chinese activists? @EFF

  • xnatasxswe xnatasx (@xnatasxswe) reported

    The Chinese gov is censuring reports about the protests. What help can the Chinese get to get their voices heard around the world? @SpaceXStarlink , @elonmusk ? Which is safest app for them? Not @signalapp due to use of phone numbers? Meshnets? #chinaprotest

  • Perseus390057 Your Guy (@Perseus390057) reported

    @signalapp Think there’s a little glitch with signal application in my region,it seems to delay when sending or sharing folders,taking about 10min to send a pic or file,even when I try with cellular and WiFi. Is this a general situation or something?

  • Meadowandhats Z. (@Meadowandhats) reported

    Love using @signalapp ,the problem is not a lot of people are migrating to this one so i talk to only 2-3 people on this app. WhatsApp is becoming more of social media app than a messaging one, don't like using it.

  • takanorikarlyn Christie 🐨 (@takanorikarlyn) reported

    @signalapp I can’t send & receive messages on my iPhone 11 (on latest app + iOS update) but laptop is running smoothly. Have sent email to support but no reply yet. Help?

  • Mr_Kwibs Mr. Kwibs (@Mr_Kwibs) reported

    @MyHushTeam @signalapp 1/ Hi there, You have put a lot of incorrect information here about $CCX. I'll take the time to help you correct those mistakes. 1) CCX isn't a "monero coin". It's a original CryptoNote 2.0 coin with our own implementation of the protocol. We have 0 Monero code.

  • XDC_Chosen1 XDC (@XDC_Chosen1) reported

    @lukebelmar This is not an issue with @signalapp or @session_app

  • noufy_s noufy_s (@noufy_s) reported

    @signalapp hello please ****** your help, I just receive a verification code and I didn’t download signal app thanks

  • AnondoRando rando anondo (@AnondoRando) reported

    @deviantollam @signalapp I don't know of any secure comms apps that reach down into the baseband code, which I believe runs completely separated (think air gap on the handset) from platform software (much like the processor that operates on SIM cards) .

  • CS_Blackthorne Blackthorne (@CS_Blackthorne) reported

    @mfelaco @deviantollam @signalapp Care to elaborate? I know there's some security issues with using sms but if you have a use case for signal I'd love to hear it.

  • Panopticonomy Laura Love (@Panopticonomy) reported

    @elonmusk @Liz_Wheeler Maybe @signalapp could help or?

  • DesmondKafui Desmond Kafui (@DesmondKafui) reported

    I love @signalapp BUT the fact that I can't back up to icloud or some other easy cloud service makes the app almost useless. forget to back up and you lose key memories. Folks, if you can create a secure app, I don't think a worthy backup solution is too much to ask. Encrypt them

  • bugimane Ras Kapital (@bugimane) reported

    @EatSleepCrypto @signalapp You can turn autocorrect off though If the OS is still tracking what you type then, yes it’s a major problem

  • SquareofDu Dudu Joseph (@SquareofDu) reported

    @signalapp iOS App takes a long time to send messages. Sometimes it takes so long that I have to exit the app and reopen it to send them. Is this a known issue ?

  • mgattozzi The last 20% of Michaelservices left (@mgattozzi) reported

    In very not fun consequences of @signalapp turning off sms support, my parents whom I blocked in the app and forgot to block at the service level provider sent me texts today that completely threw me off balance for that so thanks. I now have to go through and port my block list.

  • davesmivers David Megson-Smith 🇺🇦💛💙🇺🇦 (@davesmivers) reported

    @signalapp I wish to donate £1/month - I've been doing this to Wikipedia for 10+ years now. However there appears to be a 'minimum permissable monthly donation' - £2.49 atm. In-app there is not even an option for a custom monthly amount and I don't care about badges. Plz fix... :)
