  • filos filos.eth 🇮🇹🥋☕️🦁🤖 (@filos) reported

    Why the hell I receive tons of notifications about friend using @signalapp (a messaging service I love) but when you try to contact them there, it seems like they are ghosts? People install, after some friend recommends, then forget. That’s my guess.

  • Malat0r Malate (@Malat0r) reported

    @d4rkm4tter @signalapp That’s interesting. The local datetime makes sense, as relying on a server for it would create potential tracking or identifying data/telemetry. Should be some way they can fix the problem with disappearing messages without abandoning local datetime though

  • TrecaDavis66 Treca Davis (@TrecaDavis66) reported

    @signalapp my signal app keeps freezing up. Can you help?

  • sahu_suman_9 Suman Kumar Sahu (@sahu_suman_9) reported

    @signalapp I'm not able to recieve messages on mobile data... Neither my friends... Even after updating the issue remains... Plz acknowledge.

  • MeanEYE_rcf Mladen Mijatov (@MeanEYE_rcf) reported

    @isamlambert I know what it is and refuse to use it. Colleagues in my company are using it and I am sick of yet another web service running as application trying to be everything in one thing. @session_app or @signalapp and we are good to go. Oh, and let's not forget good old IRC.

  • deevide2b D33\^_^/IDE (Dina Ahmed) (@deevide2b) reported

    @signalapp Folx i need assistance on Group chat error that is happening collectively. sent a report on the problem but no reply. can i talk to a team member 101? p.s. couldnt find it in your group chat troubleshoot

  • brammarb Bram (@brammarb) reported

    @signalapp Are you having delivery issues? Been getting some messages with +12hr delays ...

  • robmv Robert Marcano (@robmv) reported

    The chat inside @gmail is really bad on Android, a relative has been sending me messages all day (using it instead of @signalapp because her phone is broken) and nearly all times, no notification is shown. Mail notifications arrive without problems, so it isn't an app sleep issue

  • quant_arb Stat Arb (@quant_arb) reported

    @signalapp it’s ******* annoying how it messages everyone you know when you join telegram. I know people who refuse to download the app because of this. Fix it!

  • weitzelb consider the climate (@weitzelb) reported

    .@signalapp has some serious UX issues that would take nothing to fix. For example, a sibling group chat: Amy Webler - hi Andrew Webler - sup Arnold Webler - where's mom? Amanda Webler - who's mom? (AW ...) <--- "is typing" WHICH AW IS TYPING!?!

  • ADoug ADoug (@ADoug) reported

    Every single time @signalapp asks me for my backup pin (which is on-average every 3 days); I have to look it up in my PW manager. This is not working to make people remember their PIN. In fact it's probably encouraging users to pick weak PINS, or disable this PW feature. 0/5⭐

  • jimio jimio (@jimio) reported

    @RobinHoodTV @signalapp we’ve got a fix in v5.40, coming soon! (addresses a QR-scanning issue with several device types) 🙏

  • RobinHoodTV Robin. H 🇨🇭 (@RobinHoodTV) reported

    Hello @signalapp ! I can't link my signal app on OSX with my phone because the camera freezes when I try to cach the QR code. The bug is on Redmi Note 11, can you help me?

  • PortiaSC Portia (@PortiaSC) reported from Bristol, England

    @signalapp is there an issue at the moment, msg sent but sot delivered

  • LauryAnnne Laury-Anne (@LauryAnnne) reported

    @signalapp i have an issue with the note part we can use in your app. The messages I send to myself disappear after a while but the temporary option is deactivated.

  • Suntosh001 nEw iNboX (@Suntosh001) reported

    @WhatsApp after update - under media auto downloads-unable to choose “never”it resets back to default -wifi cellular,wifi for audio,videos,photos&documents (for an iPhone) fix this bug else will move to @signalapp

  • __ljrk Leonard/Janis Robert König (@__ljrk) reported

    @signalapp Smart watches are less prone to breaking, more water resistant and much less of a danger to get addicted to :-) Now I just need to wait for capitalism to solve my problem :'-D

  • orionwl (@orionwl) reported

    @theinstagibbs @signalapp or maybe it's an issue with the flatpak, that it forgets its state after an upgrade (but i don't think it's entirely the case i did see old logs)

  • SonicTerrorist Sonic T (@SonicTerrorist) reported

    @signalapp Hi, for a long time now I don't receive a notification for a voice call, just a missed call, same when I call others. Video calls work fine. Other friends report the same issue. Any idea why please?

  • A_Houghton37 🌴Big Al 🇦🇺🇹🇭🇬🇧 (@A_Houghton37) reported

    @jgarzik @signalapp @element_hq I'm not surprised. It's a terrible app.

  • Dark_God Paul Smith (@Dark_God) reported

    @signalapp Is there an issue with the Signal servers at them moment? My messages are not getting delivered to my friends phone for 40 minutes but they are on Instagram and their internet connection is absolutely fine. Many thanks.

  • chris122380 Christopher Anthony (@chris122380) reported

    @signalapp contacts are still broken on Oxygen OS 12. I have submitted another log after a fresh install of signal.

  • mackoushko macko usko (@mackoushko) reported

    @signalapp messages not arriving, calls never picked. Tons of phones. Took me years to realize the service actually doesn't work. I have like 2% success in calls, had incredible stress with undelivered messages, and today it's the realization time. Gotta self host messaging.

  • mako4111978 Pablo (@mako4111978) reported

    @signalapp hi there I wish you could help me I have my account blocked because I forgot my pin, I need to use this amazing app, but I don’t get an answer from you. I don’t wish to recover any data just can use the app and create a new pin. Can you help. Thanks.

  • D_Yoxon Daniel Yoxon (@D_Yoxon) reported

    @signalapp Why are calls from iPhone to iPhone on signal not working in Australia? This has been happening for a couple of weeks now.

  • ex3v Maciej Szkamruk (@ex3v) reported

    @Stan_tastisch @manmanchan7 @signalapp Why Apple? Does Apple make it impossible to download chats backup file from the cloud down to the phone? No. From my POV it's signal's fault that this file cannot be processed and imported, because it is in the end available.

  • DethVeggie Deth Veggie (@DethVeggie) reported

    @Do0g7e @signalapp @WhatsApp I mean, pretty much everyone I communicate with is already on Signal. The only time I've encountered issues is where someone WAS on signal, and then deleted the app.

  • vathpela Farce Majeure🌹 (@vathpela) reported

    @DethVeggie @signalapp I've had this before, and I managed to get out of it eventually... I think if you hold down the send button to manually select unencrypted once or twice in a row it'll switch back? But not particularly clear.

  • DethVeggie Deth Veggie (@DethVeggie) reported

    I've been using @signalapp for years, but occasionally I encounter a frustrating issue where one of my contacts stops using signal, but Signal doesn't recognize that they're not using it anymore -- I can't seem to find a way to "purge" them from signal and go back to SMS then.

  • tiedcone Jarek (@tiedcone) reported

    @signalapp Fix notification system please. I had to say sorry to WhatsApp due to always late notifications on Signal. Tested with several devices and users.
