Signal Private Messenger is a tool developed and published by Open Whisper Systems, providing users the kind of privacy they deserve.

Signal Private Messenger’s features

With Signal, you have the ability to say anything and be safe. You can send high-quality texts, pics and video messages — even group messages — without worry. It also allows you to be yourself as it uses your existing phone number and address book, meaning there are no separate logins, PINs, or usernames that you have to manage.

Users can stay as private as they want to. The app can’t read the messages and no one else can do this either; there are no exceptions. Everything from this app is always end-to-end encrypted and painstakingly engineered to keep communication as safe as possible.

The app is supported by a team of dedicated engineers and developers, community donations and grants. The app lacks ads and you don’t have to pay anything to use it. All of the code used in the app is free, open and also available on GitHub. The app’s Join Movements feature involves a technology that has been developed by Open Whisper Systems and that is trusted and used by millions of people from all over the world each and every day.

In case you are experiencing any problems with this application or have questions or suggestions for the developer, you are advised to check out the developer’s support site.

User experience

According to user experiences, it would be better if the contacts and conversations would be separate from the contact/conversation list from the left side. Other users say that even if it works okay, the app is pretty buggy and features a few syncing problems which results in doubled messages.

We are waiting for an update that fixes all these issues. Meanwhile, you can try the app out for yourself from the Chrome Web Store.
