  • cyberquanta Anuj Singh (@cyberquanta) reported

    @signalapp Video/Audio issues faced so far: 1. Call takes forever to connect 2. After hit and trial if it gets connected at the other end(receiver) somehow phone pickup response is sluggish (unresponsive) 3. Most irritating parts of the above two points comes with the lag in audio

    @blackdwarf97 @signalapp As I understand it signal is a non profit andrelies on donations. I'd happily pay small annual fee for the service.

  • TheGrumpyMartin Martin Nobel (🇫🇷🇷🇪 ) (@TheGrumpyMartin) reported

    @DayaKathir @Qo_Olamilekan @signalapp Uncheck Signal from Super clean mode resolved this issues for me.

  • KingOfAngmarrr Witchking of Angmar (@KingOfAngmarrr) reported

    @signalapp Hope you find a lot of new donators to keep the service alive. Nothing is for free, we can choose whether we pay with our privacy, or donate some bucks.

  • TripathySanjit Sanjit Tripathy (@TripathySanjit) reported

    Just wondering how @signalapp is going to handle the storage issue in coming few months? Donations will help them to a certain limit, after that? Investors to pump the money in? Once investors are involved then you know what happens next. Its just a starting point of a cycle.🤔

  • Vikaskumar45007 Vikas (@Vikaskumar45007) reported

  • RobyRew RobyRew (@RobyRew) reported

  • TJMac93 Tom Mac (@TJMac93) reported

    @signalapp Problem is still persisting after resetting the session. Any alternative step?

  • _cluxter_ cluxter (@_cluxter_) reported

    @rucci_harucci @signalapp You have to use something to send text messages at some point. So he should use the best thing which currently exists. If Signal betrays us at some point (which I doubt but who knows), he can switch to something else. Whatever he uses, he will face this potential problem anyway.

  • DayaKathir Daya Kathir (@DayaKathir) reported

    @Qo_Olamilekan @signalapp Yes, Same issue here.

    @fcmid005 @signalapp Even without a tweet people would have understood the problem with Google. Also the solution to this problem is quite intuitive.

  • janvlug Jan Vlug 🌱 🤍❤️🤍 (@janvlug) reported

    @Eldroga75 @signalapp For a few contacts, after the server problems at Signal, I also had the "bad encrypted message", I think for one contact I had to reset the session both on my phone and as well on my Signal desktop.

    @signalapp There are some funny pictures and gestures in animated gif files in the signal program. There is a problem with these animated gifs. The content of the gifs is in a state of harm to morality It is your responsibility for people to send such pictures to each other.

    @signalapp Your mac app became unusable! I am not able to import contacts, and if it does import them, and I send a message from my mac, it’s not appearing on the other devices (phone, iPad)…I’ve been using signal on mac for 2 years without issues but now there’s a problem.

  • SiriusArani Uschi (@SiriusArani) reported

    @iammrkt @signalapp What is complex about it? You click "backup" and write down the key.

  • Swannchrls Swann (@Swannchrls) reported

    @signalapp There are still issues with syncing between desktop app and mobile app. All messages are not synced. Hope this will get fixed quickly too

  • patricksavalle #THEGREATRESIST (@patricksavalle) reported

    Question for @signalapp @telegram Why do I need a SIM-card / phone number to use Signal or Telegram? How does this help privacy? Please remove that requirement.

  • BarKoad I once had a thought ... (@BarKoad) reported

    @signalapp I'll be happy to stay with Signal while it resolves growth issues. I prefer fewer features and more security over a marketing WhoreApp that disregards my privacy
