Signal Private Messenger: Easy-to-use, Private and Secure – Android App Pick

From Open Whisper Systems, “Privacy is possible, Signal makes it easy.

“Using Signal, you can communicate instantly while avoiding SMS fees, create groups so that you can chat in real time with all your friends at once, and share media or attachments all with complete privacy. The server never has access to any of your communication and never stores any of your data.

“Say Anything. Signal uses an advanced end to end encryption protocol that provides privacy for every message every time.

“Open Source. Signal is Free and Open Source, enabling anyone to verify its security by auditing the code. Signal is the only private messenger that uses open source peer-reviewed cryptographic protocols to keep your messages safe.”

It doesn’t work on tablets.

Gabriele Lucci says:

Fun fact: Open Whisper Systems also integrated their encyption protocol (Signal) into Whatsapp, so privacy-wise both the apps are on the same level.

> Requires your phone number

Instant no.
If you provide your phone number, you pretty much give your location away. Not good.

UKcuber says:

The sms thing is what put off my wife. She wanted to send me messages but doesn’t always have data turned on. she didn’t like the delay.

Dennis Menace says:

Does this app work with Alcatel phones?

bashrc says:

Rather uncritical. Signal is better than a default SMS app but it depends on Google push service and makes no attempt to protect metadata. Probably Google has the social graph of all Signal users. Also Signal doesn’t federate and attempts to fork as LibreSignal have not been successful.

Ronald Hinchley says:

It just worked when I built Signal for Android using github source on Ubuntu. But you should install it from the app store. Now that I like I’m not sure I want to keep pulling in the latest source and compiling it. But don’t be afraid to build it, look at the code.

Michael Norry says:

Having access to your phone number really breaks it for me.

SUPERgluedCHAIN says:

There is also a chrome extension for signal, which works really nicely 😀

Kevin R says:

didn’t the warrant canary on the open whisper systems website get removed a while ago?

it would also be interesting if you could make a video where you talk about the recent news involving RiseUp, the disappearance of their warrant canary, and all the news about assage being missing

thingyee1118 says:

Been using it since I first heard about it. Probably 1 – 2 years now.

Thomas E McNicholas says:

Requires Google Play Services so doesn’t work with F-Droid.

Brandon James says:
