    @signalapp hi, actually I have an issue with notifications when new message arrive on Pixel 6 Pro (Android 12), i'm not receiving them, is it a known issue now?

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 🇺🇦 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @makaulucky @signalapp In my case, the SMS were completely abolished by the bank. It was generally too insecure for them. Instead of the SMS, there is now a separate app. This is used to manage the TAN numbers and the login.

  • Angus_Loyc Angus Lo (@Angus_Loyc) reported

    @signalapp when are you going to release 3.35.3 in iOS? My signal app keep crashing once I open the app after updating to 3.35.2. This problem has been happening throughout a week. Are you not going to fix it?

    @WhatsApp down again 😕 people will flock to @signalapp and then run back to WhatsApp when it restores

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 🇺🇦 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @fuckyeah_c @signalapp You mean that the messages arrive at the recipient only when he opens the app? This is unfortunately a known problem...

  • FractalEcho Rua M. Williams (@FractalEcho) reported

    When you use @signalapp, and the person you are texting STOPS using signal app (or had used it in the past), your texts don't go through. Does anyone know what I can do to fix this?

  • MikeDesai Mike Desai (@MikeDesai) reported from New Delhi, National Capital Territory of Delhi

    @cIndraneel @signalapp Installed before anyone else. 4years ago. Uninstalled well before it became a craze last year. Contact syncing is a major issue. Messes my WhatsApp list. Anyway WhatsApp is safe. Issues happen because people back-up chats.

  • whatsabschalten 🇩🇪 🇺🇦 WhatsAbschalten #TeamSignal (@whatsabschalten) reported

    @fuckyeah_c @signalapp Why? What problems do you have exactly?

  • PepeBorras Pepe Borrás (@PepeBorras) reported

    @sa0un @signalapp The incredible shrinking encrypted instant messaging service.

  • a_bangser Abby Bangser (@a_bangser) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp Thank you for messaging! Since most recent Android update, there has not been any notifications. I have checked all the settings in both phone and app etc. Is there anything in specific to look at? There seems to be complaints on forums of similar behaviour without a fix 🫤

  • AlisonBrux Alison A (@AlisonBrux) reported

    You know what's a good way to communicate? Even when #whatsapp isn't down. @signalapp.

  • _computerfreak Computer freak 𒂼𒄄 (@_computerfreak) reported

    @signalapp @RaminA1A Hi, I'm having the same issue. Signal wants me to unlock it via pattern on my OnePlus phone and then it crashes. I can only open Signal, if I remove my lock pattern completely.

  • ajorg Andrew Jorgensen ⍟ (@ajorg) reported

    Dear @signalapp, It's maybe okay to ask me to restart your desktop app if the update solves a security issue. Otherwise, please queue the update for the next time I close the app instead. Kind regards, Considering Alternatives

  • italoceco Aaron (@italoceco) reported

    If @WhatsApp is down I advice people switching to @signalapp which is safer. Or at least @telegram which has the best UI and quality of life functions. #whatsappdown

  • cIndraneel Indraneel Chitale (@cIndraneel) reported

    @signalapp issue is still not resolved on both my phones. Latest logs have been mailed to your support. Kindly advice further.

  • mikewink Mike Wink (@mikewink) reported

    @signalapp how about giving us a feature to delete contacts like any other application can? This blocking and unblocking game does not feel right and the contacts are still in the list when I create a new conversation. Please, please, please fix that issue! Thank you. 🤓

  • alsurab_1 alsurab (@alsurab_1) reported

    The problem exists either in your devices or from the technicians the first time I show technical problems you have, or in the rest of the programs do not exist such as Telegram and WhatsApp and there are no technical problems at all @Signalapp @moxie

  • roygrubb Roy Grubb (@roygrubb) reported

    @signalapp @signalapp PC version, your 4th update since my 31st March report. Repeat report: The problem with window size forgotten from one restart of Windows to the next, still not fixed. 3-screen Win PC, on 4K screen (not primary screen). 1st happened Dec 2021, fixed, then reverted

  • nothergeek sean (@nothergeek) reported

    @signalapp notification sounds on Android are not working properly. I've already opened a support ticket to no avail. And now I've confirmed I'm not the only one 🙁

  • TheUncleMez The Uncle Mez (@TheUncleMez) reported

    So, @signalapp on desktop isn't independent from its mobile phone pair. Terrible ! now, what if I want to have on my desktop only because i don't own a smartphone? it is simple, make it plateform independent for everyone

  • HeroofSaratoga Benedict Arnold (@HeroofSaratoga) reported

    @David_Leavitt @elonmusk @signalapp is an e2e encryption messaging service that can replace your default text message on your phone. End-to-end encryption should be standard in all social media platforms, but how will they profit from the data you so freely give them? Take some steps to change that.

  • Warncke_ Jonathan (@Warncke_) reported

    With how often I’ve installed @signalapp “reduce app size by 25%” update now, it should be down to 2MB
