    @irae @signalapp I agree and disagree… problem with Signal in the context of disappearing messages is one can easily loose track of message so many (including myself) take screenshots which is a horrible idea. Remind me in n minutes/hours could solve that problem… but there are trade-offs.

  • milen_radkov Milen R. 🏴‍☠️ (@milen_radkov) reported

    @signalapp I want to know how you're preserving our privacy by utilizing 3rd party service like Google's reCaptcha? Also when usernames instead of phone number?

  • pushingtweets 🇯🇲She been🇯🇲 (@pushingtweets) reported

    @signalapp Please fix the "cancel button". I barely brush against it, cancels Vns so easily😵‍💫. I'm wondering if you ppl use your own app!, because you'd find some of the most annoying finicky features, that could be improved

  • Larunos Kaen Nevar (@Larunos) reported

    @signalapp and that problem got all my friends its not only me. so it is save? can be because messages dosnt arrive.

  • Larunos Kaen Nevar (@Larunos) reported

    @signalapp New Update added Creditcard to spend , i will do BUT only if they stabelized because messages only come in when you open the app Energie saver is off Push messages all on but i never become messages until i open the app , this problem after research are inside after years.

  • canllaith canllaith (@canllaith) reported

    @signalapp I have been trying to get support for a payment issue for two months now and I keep getting an auto reply that I can’t get support until I upgrade. There is no later version available in the App Store for my country.

  • zquestz Josh Ellithorpe (@zquestz) reported

    @signalapp Donations require you to listen to your users. We didn't want a crypto wallet. We didn't want stories. We want SMS support to remain in order to seamlessly upgrade users to secure conversations. Donations are down because you are failing your user base.

  • bitlosophy Bitlosopher (@bitlosophy) reported

    @signalapp You are asking your users to donate and help. Thats fair. But you are not listening up to them. Not cool. Drop the “crypto”, dont alert users when joined in and if possible remove phone number (I understand this last one might be challenging) And then see the donations go up.

  • Does_not_mattr itDoesntMatter (@Does_not_mattr) reported

    @signalapp Sell you mansion. That’ll help the cause.

  • lc_lol LC #ForzaAlex (@lc_lol) reported

    Hello @signalapp My phone has broken a month ago, and I had to replace it before I got it back. Now I'd like to restore my old messages but I also have newer ones on my new phone. Is it possible to merge the backup I did today from older phone within the newer messages ? Thanks.

  • IBuildPortals Relativity (@IBuildPortals) reported

    @dnaodan @signalapp It doesn't have SMS, so i move to another service without SMS... Big brain time.

  • dnaodan Dan (@dnaodan) reported

    @signalapp My D&D group moved off Signal because the loss of SMS meant one of the guys didn't want it on his phone anymore. So we all moved to Discord :-( We need to provide features that bridge the gap and help others to the better side. Not remove features that helped us move them.

  • RealSexyCyborg Naomi Wu 机械妖姬 (@RealSexyCyborg) reported

    @hallam @moxie @signalapp No one said it was a simple problem. But it's a problem that should be openly acknowledged so the community can work on it. That did not happen because everyone wants to worship tor as the be all and end all and it's simply not- and the foundation needs own that and step aside.

  • UtahBoy6 Utah Boy (@UtahBoy6) reported

    @signalapp Having technical issues with your app. I use it for group chats with my company. One of my employees lost his old phone got a new one and won’t let him log into the app with new phone. Keeps saying network error.

  • bob_fnord Bob Fnord (@bob_fnord) reported

    @signalapp I don't care about that SMS issue but those popups asking for a donation recently are getting too much. I'm trying to keep people on the app. Please drive those messages down.

  • mer__edith Meredith Whittaker (@mer__edith) reported

    @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?
