  • leonahaleyx Leona Keung (@leonahaleyx) reported

    @signalapp my friends are suddenly being spammed “chat session refreshed” and not receiving messages I have sent intermittently. What is happening, how to fix? Thanks!

  • Experdiza Доткор Хаос (@Experdiza) reported

    @FormerlyStC @signalapp Unfortunately not. If your contacts have open signalapp, they will see if you have signal by blue send button (they don't know if u r online or your status like in WhatsApp). I agree that using login name in any messaging system provides more privacy than using phone number.

  • Experdiza Доткор Хаос (@Experdiza) reported

    @FormerlyStC @signalapp There is an option in settings "do not notify when contact joins signal" if understood correctly. Unless you meant using a login names instead of phone numbers for increased security (like in @myWickr )

  • PaxCaeIi Pax🌹 (@PaxCaeIi) reported

    @TrigoBruno @telegram @signalapp I do not see the point of downgrading to a worse service

  • DurmusPinarci_9 Durmus Pinarci (@DurmusPinarci_9) reported

    @signalapp I think there's a bug which cause the chat not to auto scroll down when new messages are send or resieved. Have you guys noticed?

  • duspom Dusty Pomerleau (@duspom) reported

    @frigidcode @matrixdotorg @signalapp lol Frank you hate every piece of software. Are you sure this isn't a settings problem? I get all my notifications on iOS without fail.

  • AspiringLockpic The Aspiring Lockpicker #KBF 🆓 (@AspiringLockpic) reported

    PLEASE @signalapp FIX your desktop app. It's 2021. I record a message and switch programs on my computer and it stops recording. NOW I did NOTHINT AT ALL and I was talking and it stopped part way through. Please FIX IT. It should not stop when I switch away or sit doing nothing..

    @signalapp @ghc Sharing PDF in Signal is not viewable or downloadable. I think that's a big problem. Let's solve this problem.

  • satrinity402 Satrinity ✝️ (@satrinity402) reported

    .@signalapp took a backup on v5.22.8 of the Android app, and tried migrating to a new phone with backup file and recovery code, and I'm getting a "can't recover backup from a newer version of Signal" error Both were updated to the latest version (no beta) Any advice?

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

    @lizthegrey Good on them for taking the issue seriously, better than the **** @signalapp pulled.

  • jimio jimio (@jimio) reported

    @emilymiller @signalapp @ghc hi! this isn’t a hacking attempt, but I’d love to ask your help in debugging what might have happened here. my DMs are open, but I’ll send an email to the address on your twitter profile too. any bugs causing something like this should be updated in the most recent app releases.

    @filos @signalapp I’ve had the same problem, but if people don’t want to change, well it’s there loss. I will not go back to WhatsApp.

  • CH5419 chinathings (@CH5419) reported

    @xu_xiuzhong Unusual. Contact @signalapp , alert them that you are a high risk case. They might able to help you pull some logs?

  • lisamowagner Lisa Mo (she/her) (@lisamowagner) reported

    @signalapp my group messages won’t send and I get a 500 error 🥺 after several re-tries one went through and one didn’t. Just thought you should know.

  • mohaneds mohaned sayegh (@mohaneds) reported

    I'm wondering if my issue with @signalapp notifications is only a problem on iOS 15 betas. If someone messages me on Signal while I have their conversation window open, I don't hear an audio indicator of the new message.

  • AstaMcCarthy AstaMcCarthy 🍀 (@AstaMcCarthy) reported

    @dosch @moxie @signalapp Its not really the E2E encryption itself, the problem is that with WhatApp the endpoints cannot be trusted. This problem doesn't occur in #opensource, peer-reviewed apps.

  • TempledwellerA Templedweller_AI (@TempledwellerA) reported

    @signalapp Does this app still work for anyone? I have the immediate crash on restart issue that people have addressed repeatedly online with no resolution from Signal. Is this thing even operable for anyone anymore?

  • johnlovexx11214 jason love (@johnlovexx11214) reported

    @naomibrockwell @signalapp ProtonVPN is a no logs VPN service. We do not track or record your internet activity, and therefore, we are unable to disclose this information to third parties. Does proton vpn log my IP address ? So if u use Gmail they could get my ip? Help

  • ellisilee Ellis I. Lee (@ellisilee) reported

    @KisayeNatsuki @signalapp I was told my someone on the Signal team that this problem will be fixed in the next update, which should be coming out very soon. Take care!

  • creepiepanda Christian Paolella (@creepiepanda) reported

    @signalapp am i the only one having issues with sending messages? For a few days now messages very often don't get sent right away. Sometimes takes a few minutes for the message to go out (internet connection is fine). Signal Beta v5.23.1 on Android #Signal

  • RastegarRamin Ramin Rastegar (@RastegarRamin) reported

    @munirshocair @signalapp @ghc Issue seems to be on ios only.

  • S17CRK Cameron (@S17CRK) reported

    @signalapp Currently having an issue with sending or receiving messages. Am connected to the Internet obvs and other messaging apps are working. Any chance of some advice. From A frustrated donater .

  • MikalJakubal Mikal with a k (@MikalJakubal) reported

    @propublica I hope the @signalapp team stays up at night pondering what they would do if their app replaces WhatsApp as the choice for organizers of genocide. Given FB's surveillance business model, though, it seems they have an obligation to prevent genocide? A wicked problem by definition.

  • mamdouh733 Mamdouh Agaibi (@mamdouh733) reported

    @signalapp is there a problem with the last update for iOS I can’t use the app

  • ellisilee Ellis I. Lee (@ellisilee) reported

    @Jtcryptodr @signalapp The problems seems to be caused by having censorship circumvention turned on. Hope they can resolve the issue. Good luck!

  • ellisilee Ellis I. Lee (@ellisilee) reported

    @KisayeNatsuki @signalapp For me, the problem seems to be caused by having censorship circumvention turned on...
