    @TorksAdam @UtopiaP2P Did you read the column in question? As long as *message content* isn't shared, most of their users shouldn't have a problem with that. As long as there's no comparable user base(!) and tested, reliable (third-party) command line interface, I see no reason to replace @signalapp.

  • Ulfman75 Ulfman (@Ulfman75) reported

    Hey @signalapp, I would like to support you but when I chosed that option in the app my payment via Gpay has been reclined. Tried different (German) credit cards but I keep recieving an error message. Any advice?

  • bitkarrot ₿itkarrot⚡️ (@bitkarrot) reported

    @ODELL @signalapp @moxie lol i'm not sure it can work without SGX. this is the problem with depending on big tech (intel) to maintain your infra, NGMI

  • ODELL ODELL (@ODELL) reported

    How does Intel's SGX deprecation impact @signalapp? Seems to rely on it heavily... Possibly one of the reasons @moxie just stepped down.

  • AmitejRana amitejrana.blockchain (@AmitejRana) reported

    I use @signalapp for messaging, coz it's safe, open-source, peer to peer, promotes data privacy as compared to #WhatsApp or #Telegram which goes down anytime and have our data in their centralized database. Better to switch to apps that are either open-source or based on Web 3.

  • L_etter Lejla Sarcevic (@L_etter) reported

    Pretty annoying that I had to delete ALL of my @signalapp desktop data due to some *waves hand* data error that kept crashing it every 3 minutes. Hoping all those Signal Star symbols I'm seeing pop up help fix this kind of crap which is entirely too common.

  • mechanism_8 Mechanism Eight (@mechanism_8) reported

    @radio_research @signalapp That is suboptimal, not sure what analysis would really be possible, but the issue for me is that Google is perpetually shady and any interaction should be avoided. So why don’t they?

    @koala_leb @signalapp No, I do not notice any problems

    Is @signalapp down?

  • hannabroad1 Hannah Gaz (@hannabroad1) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp I was messaging a friends and it shut down my phone completely. When I turned back on the app will no longer open.

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

    @hannabroad1 @signalapp What kind of problems do you have? Maybe I can help...

  • billvinson Bill Vinson (@billvinson) reported

    @WhatsApp @signalapp Another complaint with @signalapp is the linking to a phone number. Any service that locks me into a single device/carrier ID is a non-starter for me...

  • hannabroad1 Hannah Gaz (@hannabroad1) reported

    @signalapp hi my app is not working. I’ve not heard back from anyone from your company. Can you please help?

  • itisbilly Billy Pandamonium (@itisbilly) reported

    I just made a donation to @signalapp because I think I’m doing the right thing and I’m tweeting about it because I’m conceited. It really comes down to either paying for a good product, or using a free product that turns you into the product for a paying 3rd party.

  • rostyslav999s Ростислав Салабай (@rostyslav999s) reported

    @NilssonHolger @basierterFlo @signalapp The problem is with people that use Signal only

  • hannabroad1 Hannah Gaz (@hannabroad1) reported

    @signalapp hi my app is not working. It says to send a debug message, but it will not work.

  • rgentozala Reine Gentozala (@rgentozala) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp I see. Hopefully there’s a fix.

  • rgentozala Reine Gentozala (@rgentozala) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp Thank you so much. Is this because Twilio’s service cannot support messages sent from a China number?

  • moogoo68 moogoo68 (@moogoo68) reported

    @signalapp I am having issues with iCloud Private relay when using wireless carrier. No issues when using my home wifi/network. Is there an issue using iCloud private relay with Signal on an iPhone with a cell phone carrier?

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

    @rgentozala @signalapp For the usage itself, a VPN would be usable. But during verification, the number of the sender is simply blocked in general. I'll see if I can find something that can help you.

  • Cyphermoney Cypher (@Cyphermoney) reported

    @CryptoTweetie @signalapp Seems more likely a bad recipient than a bad service. “One possibility is that a recipient with access to the messages handed them over to investigators. The complaint references group messages run on the app, so it’s possible a participant in those chats cooperated.”

  • BryanFThornton Bryan Thornton (@BryanFThornton) reported

    @Thedrken @signalapp Your logical security controls are eventually going to break down if you fail at basic physical security.

  • 0xMadness 0xMadness de’ Medici u/62 (@0xMadness) reported

    @whatsabschalten @signalapp A lot of people are having the same issues. Laggy app, can't click "back" to view other message chats once in chat without closing application, notifications lag and sometimes don't update. etc etc its been happening for over a month on multiple different phones

  • C_J_F_T ChristopherTrimboli.eth (@C_J_F_T) reported

    @signalapp Having some issues connecting to desktop mobile app QR code. Scanner is not picking it up. S20 ultra android device. Not able to get a lock on and login. 😭

  • RastegarRamin Ramin Rastegar (@RastegarRamin) reported

    @signalapp Sending voice notes to iPhone from Android 12 plays at double the speed in iPhone devices. Please fix.

  • wartonhertz Warton Hertz (@wartonhertz) reported

    @signalapp Guys, i am having problems with video call on Signal for Android. Voice is delaying over the video.

  • Ingulf Alex (@Ingulf) reported

    @N_Waters89 @signalapp bit of a privacy issue there

  • Vargaswilliamra adoption life center (@Vargaswilliamra) reported

    @CoinDesk @signalapp @AxieInfinity Adoption Center requests funds to save 85 dogs, 141 cats so that they do not lose their home and food. Any help is welcome at our center. Binance TRC20 tanks TPH2rarn4gbNqJB9oo1vebNxH1Wd2VEqNe

  • borland Orion Edwards (@borland) reported

    @oddynz @moxie @signalapp Sorry dude, not trying to rain on your parade, more just my own feeling down about the state of things 😔

  • hortstu Horton H.A. Whoo (@hortstu) reported

    @Jmw986 @moxie @signalapp I don't have a problem with that. My problem is not knowing when they've uninstalled or gotten a new phone... I send a secure message and they're not getting them.
