Signal Issues Reports

Latest outage, problems and issue reports in social media:

  • shehackspurple Tanya Janca (@shehackspurple) reported

    @mfeferman @signalapp I have a lot of trouble listening to the audio messages. It won't let you fast forward or start part way through. If I move, it often restarts. Just getting the messages to play is a hassle, I'm pressing "play message" and it's not responding sometimes. The buttons are also TINY

  • okwithmydecay Mat (@okwithmydecay) reported

    @andrewcb @signalapp I hope it's soon. I got a few friends to switch to Signal on iPhone and they gave up due to notification issues

  • cybaiger Baiger, PDHD (they/them) (@cybaiger) reported

    @GinPerigee @Grifter801 @signalapp Do you know Signal's service has been completely blocked off in mainland China? For at least half a year now. What keyboard extension do you think will solve this? Also, maybe report on the issue tracker instead of Twitter if wanting to be taken seriously.

  • royandmorty Roy Soleil (@royandmorty) reported

    @signalapp Hi there. Huge fan for years, also donor. Anyway, there's a specific problem, maybe you can help. When I send voice messages from my android to iOS users, they can only listen to it in 1,5 or 2x speed. They can't change it. No problem if sent from Windows. Any ideas?

  • StromschlagYT Stromschlag (@StromschlagYT) reported

    Hey @signalapp! Are you guys experiencing any server troubles or service downtimes? Trying to move my conversations to a new iOS device. „move to“ doesn’t work. Both my devices are correctly setup. Prompt shows but doesn’t transfer. Also: trying again makes prompt unresponsive…

  • Beatle2708 quintoBeatle (@Beatle2708) reported

    @signalapp @RCantw3ll I have problems with the app, I can't receive or send messages, my screen gets black when I click the app (Android OS in Moto E5 play). I tried to uninstall and reinstall but it's the same. Thanks for your support!

  • BopsXRP Bops (@BopsXRP) reported

    @brian_armstrong @signalapp HELP!!! I Need my SONGBIRD!!!!!

  • bitcoinpam ₿eliever ₿oomer Remnant (@bitcoinpam) reported

    @TheGuySwann @session_app @signalapp Am using it as well...liking it so far also, but it does keep throwing an error and quitting on my Mac.

  • PantherEnterta4 Panther Entertainment (@PantherEnterta4) reported

    @brian_armstrong @signalapp bitcoin now down and nxt full doun buy not onliy sell all good

  • ishimayu 石井真弓 (@ishimayu) reported

    @signalapp Hi, I can't open the app on my iphone since a few days ago. Touch ID doesn't work, and it doesn't change to the password screen either. How can I solve the problem?

  • jiceman John Eisenman (@jiceman) reported

    @BobMcElrath @signalapp @matrixdotorg Will they bake it in as a way to fund the service?

  • jeremymolina Jeremy Molina (@jeremymolina) reported

    @timglitch @signalapp @moxie You can either be a Signal Sustainer or a Signal Booster. Go to Signal then Setting, way down the bottom it says Signal Boost, there you can specified any amount you would like to contribute with. You get a badge too, different one thought.

  • heavilyarmedc Heavily Armed Clown (@heavilyarmedc) reported

    @HillebrandMax @signalapp @matrixdotorg Signal was DOA at addressing any real issues out of the gate. Any messaging protocol that onboards with a phone number is.

  • gunwithdots Gün (@gunwithdots) reported

    @Aruschandran @signalapp No problem!

  • Evalic1ous Eva (@Evalic1ous) reported

    @eric_capuano @signalapp Isn't Signal an absolute pain to setup? You'd need to keep everyones private phone number up to date and defend against social engineering. Something that can be centrally managed and locked down like Threema Work or Wire feels like a much better choice.

  • jayzalowitz Jay Z (@jayzalowitz) reported

    @Donewithfiat @signalapp Monero takes too long, is slightly less secure, didn’t have recoverable keys, didn’t want to help them, and actually have funded a competitor. Would you help a team that funded a competitor?

  • carlosc82007946 carlos chavez (@carlosc82007946) reported

    @brian_armstrong @signalapp You should be fixing the GYEN problem for all your Coinbase customers that you are screwing over ….Brian we need our money

  • ucheogbiti Uche⚡🐲⚡ (@ucheogbiti) reported

    @signalapp please help i can't login

  • cuddlyfoxgirl Laura 💜 (@cuddlyfoxgirl) reported

    @_dev_urandom_ @signalapp @telegram the telegram thing is bullshit. they can request a new password via text message, intercept the text message and get access to all messages. it's trivial for any secret service.

  • ShadowByteCyber Shadowbyte (@ShadowByteCyber) reported

    @signalapp Is signal coming out with native M1 / Arm support? The app runs terrible on my new macbook. Thanks

  • Goldenerstein84 Goldstein (@Goldenerstein84) reported

    @sethforprivacy @signalapp @ThreemaApp That just tells you a lot about these "privacy-conscious circles". It doesn't help that People like you keep repeating this nonsense that "nobody uses it".

  • badcryptobitch Mikerah (@badcryptobitch) reported

    @BobMcElrath @signalapp @matrixdotorg Been using Element for comms at my company. Works well as a Slack alternative but not really as a signal alternative. I have tried Wire but it has the same problems as Signal. I have yet to try Threema.

  • harusha Harsha Bharadhwaj (@harusha) reported from Bengaluru, State of Karnataka

    Till today I suspected that @signalapp had an issue delivering SMS to me, only to realise it was due to stupid battery optimization setting (set to intelligent) of @oneplus Looks like it wasn't intelligent at all!

  • AndreMartin Andre Martin (@AndreMartin) reported

    The @SignalApp (desktop) seems pissed this morning, throwing me an "Unhandled Promise Rejection" error. But I didn't promise anything! #Fail

  • TechDadio TechDadio (@TechDadio) reported

    Hey @signalapp .I had 4 friends with #iphones download #SignalApp and everything was perfect messaging. They deleted Signal and now their phones do not receive messages from me. It seems there phones won't step down to sms? Any thoughts?

  • topcointrader TopCoinTrader🏝 (@topcointrader) reported

    @brian_armstrong @signalapp Whats your problem? Give us our songbird. Were not all billionaires like you. Boggles the mind how you can be so inconsiderate.

  • andrewcb (@andrewcb) reported

    I wonder when @signalapp will finally fix its notifications on iOS.

  • aldira_1 aldira (@aldira_1) reported

    @RoadtripinIndia @signalapp But over time, I will delete it, and there are technical problems in it, slow in sending and not accepting solutions to the user's problem

  • RedragonX Stephen Chavez (@RedragonX) reported

    @shehackspurple @signalapp evening rooting wont help
