    @signalapp And I've tried to donate to Signal but even the donation section is broken.

  • a_mortal_b3ing Baharul Islam (@a_mortal_b3ing) reported

    @signalapp Forget about other features like Full Size File sharing (Document Mode) & File sharing File size limit is mere 100MB, in this era of 5G. No poll option for groups. I've no problem with not having the features mentioned above. But not everyone is like me.

  • officiallyclayy Clay_official (@officiallyclayy) reported

    @signalapp been having issue with app in terms of connecting to calls and connecting to signal server.

  • petazz Oskari Petas (@petazz) reported

    @signalapp Can't log in because I can't ask the SMS. Is your service down?

  • taniaaamaria Tania Maria (@taniaaamaria) reported

    @signalapp something is going on with your audio messages. They get locked and cannot be sent. You need to force close the app to continue. This happens on iPhones, not just me. Are you aware of this issue? Thanks

  • commandlinekid cmk (@commandlinekid) reported

    @signalapp Can you please fix the Windows app File Edit bar at the top of the Signal application? It's smaller than regular apps, and VERY hard to move around. This is low-end. Have a millennial address please and set back to big boy style. Thank you.

  • DanPino Dan Pino (@DanPino) reported

    @signalapp i've tried several times to transfer my account to my new android from my old android and i keep getting "Transfer failed" at 99.9%. I've restarted both phones multiple times, made sure both apps are on the latest (and same) version, & checked permissions. pls help.

  • deadvolvo I am d3d (dead, мёртв, 死了) (@deadvolvo) reported

    @123dollarbill @signalapp Signal killed its SMS service to people without Signal App on their phone. Now when I get incoming texts from others, I can't reply and have to use another application to do so... this is something I am not going to do, as I don't play on my phone all day like most people.

  • carterforva Lee 🖖 Carter (@carterforva) reported

    With every piece of software, there is a trade-off between security and usability. @SignalApp used to hit the balance just right on Android, where you could use it for encrypted messages and SMS, and it would tell you which it was. They ended that feature today. Terrible move.

  • adura_76 adura (@adura_76) reported

    @ricooci41849656 @signalapp I had same issues days back but @KatherineCoder7 helped me recovered my account back and I can now login my account back as normal you can message her for help

  • Zoiks Zoiks (@Zoiks) reported

    @signalapp well it's happened. My signal contact list just dropped from 20+ to 4. This is not how you help make secure messaging. What an own goal.

  • GCC_WOLF GCC WOLF (@GCC_WOLF) reported

    @signalapp dear i cannot received sms code and even cannot received call from you. Please help

  • ogoncaIo ogoncalo ♥ freedom (@ogoncaIo) reported

    @CryptoTweetie @signalapp @session_app To be fair, Signal UX is super smooth, while Session still has all these random glitches and some don't make me feel very comfortable (e.g., disappearing messages not working reliably) ... Also, how Sybil resistant is it where token prices are now?

  • scifacts4kids Ashley Davis (@scifacts4kids) reported

    @aginnt @signalapp Illusions that encryption is safe for privacy. They can unencrypt, capture via backdoors etc. They can hack remotely into phones - Israeli tech co sells that service.

  • tampa_bitcoin Wesley (@tampa_bitcoin) reported

    @sovereignbrah @signalapp @sethforprivacy help

  • TbtTold TBT - Truth Be Told (@TbtTold) reported

    @sovereignbrah @signalapp They have always been watching. Now that they are switching to A.I. controlling everything, and yes that is a thing, it is not a conspiracy theory, look it up. We are getting a real SKYNET. We are in real trouble.

  • Saqqara Still me (@Saqqara) reported

    @filipebatt @mer__edith @signalapp It's not an issue for me, I can run a vpn, spoof location etc but the people I've encouraged to use it won't when WhatsApp is available we're not spies just people using an app and if signal block at device level that would make it even harder.

  • Saqqara Still me (@Saqqara) reported

    @filipebatt @mer__edith @signalapp They're not technically providing a service now, it's an app you download and the servers could be anywhere surely. The big problem here is I keep asking and they're not saying, I keep getting theories from other people when I need something concrete from them.

  • PseudoTrader chmiq (@PseudoTrader) reported

    @sovereignbrah @signalapp The problem with signal is that it also sends normal sms so tucker could have sent a normal sms without knowing it and obviously that's not secure. Signal should remove sms functionality completely.

  • filipebatt Filipe (@filipebatt) reported

    @Saqqara @mer__edith @signalapp They’ll ‘officially’ withdraw from the UK market, while giving instructions on how to circumvent that. That’s my takeaway from the article anyway. It’s a way to protect themselves legally, since they won’t technically be providing the service anymore

  • joshmyers84 j0sh (@joshmyers84) reported

    @sovereignbrah @signalapp i'm just surprised that tucker isn't using intermediaries and using tails os. that would help alleviate a lot of snooping from agencies right there. obviously, once signal gets to intended party, it's then out in the open.

  • iamfuma34 Fuma (@iamfuma34) reported

    @encorelautre @mer__edith @signalapp Each and every non-niche, non-dark web service provider will always comply with lawful data requests, I understand your tweet as belief that they will just refuse regulatory compliance? The issue is to not have much data in the first place and to not market otherwise if you do

  • triple___click bonum_civem 🇺🇸 (@triple___click) reported

    @rexmilesmontego @signalapp Never had a problem that can't be remedied. If the spin keeps going, quit the app on desktop or swipe up on mobile device, then restart and the massages go through.

  • jujik121226101 jujik (@jujik121226101) reported

    @mer__edith @badiucao @signalapp Hello. I can not install signal on Linux following all steps on site. Maybe there's some error in step #2. Thanks

  • osudrom dciswat (@osudrom) reported

    @signalapp @mer__edith @signalapp help

  • osudrom dciswat (@osudrom) reported

    @signalapp @mer__edith unable to connect to service please check connection and try again

  • Caroli_Isautier Caroline Isautier #TechForGood (@Caroli_Isautier) reported

    @signalapp I would love to again but two points to make it easier: 1/ have a Canadian charity presence for Signal so our donations here can be higher . I can help. 2/ Use Paypal or other easy payment. No entering a CC please.

  • hallam Phillip Hallam-Baker | (@hallam) reported

    @signalapp @mer__edith Signal will be vulnerable to state intercept demands until it becomes open service. Having an open source client is no longer enough. The user has to be in direct control of their contact catalog and have the ability to switch services without penalty.

  • realMastana MA$TANA💫 (@realMastana) reported

    @signalapp story is down And we also need communities on the app

  • xaimitecompress Chaimite Compressor 🔴⚪🦅 (@xaimitecompress) reported

    @signalapp @mer__edith The problem with this bill is that if the UK goes forward with this, the EU will follow with another bill equal to this one. We'll have to fight this everyway we can. E2EE has to win. Privacy has to win.
