  • DustVoice DustVoice (@DustVoice) reported

    @signalapp My app isn't working since a few hours ago. Im seeing fragments of the UI, e.g. search icon, but then the app crashes with a black screen and closes itself. Restart & cache deletion didn't yield any results and I'm yet hesitant to reinstall. Is this a known issue atm?

  • abdulahi_abdi2 Abdulahi (@abdulahi_abdi2) reported from Nairobi, Nairobi

    Anyone else having trouble making calls via @signalapp ??

  • JeanineDijkhuis Jeanine Dijkhuis (@JeanineDijkhuis) reported from Broekhuizen, Provincie Utrecht

    Hi @signalapp, I'm experiencing some problems since the last update. Especially the lack of notifications is annoying. Sounds familiar to you or other tweeps?

  • sphinx568 Reese (@sphinx568) reported

    @Goss_Gowtham @signalapp @telegram That sounds intriguing. The problem is the fact that people I want to communicate with do not use it, thus negating its usefulness in this instance.

  • 20Sonu21 Sonu (@20Sonu21) reported

    @signalapp Hi there, After the latest Android update. Battery is draining crazy. Kindly fix this issue.

  • RavT3 Rav Takhar (@RavT3) reported

    @signalapp are you guys ever going to take a look at the bug with conversations not pulling down automatically? Has been reported on GitHub, community forum, reddit and support team has been emailed along with logs. Has been open for over a year!

  • WhotThaFawk 🇳🇬🇺🇸 (@WhotThaFawk) reported

    @signalapp Not complaining about the price or shipping fee. The logo is just no where to be found. Fix this and I'm sure more users will buy.

  • GoblinInAJacket Goblin Inajacket (@GoblinInAJacket) reported

    @muchnerve @signalapp you do get broken mms messages sometimes and then it keeps resending them to you every 12 hours for a week, still broken every time.

  • kzBh5 kzBh (@kzBh5) reported

    @Agisilaos_K @di0v0n @signalapp Wait what? What do you mean it doesn't help? If someone phone gets hacked they only have access to the phone and not the pin inside the app no or the locked app? Therefore if you have different pin/password it should block anyone from accessing it?

  • Agisilaos_K Agisilaos Koulouris✊🏾🌍 (@Agisilaos_K) reported

    @di0v0n @signalapp Also the pin feature doesn't help if someone's phone gets hacked

  • MichaelRostom Michael Rostom (@MichaelRostom) reported

    @StanvHouten @signalapp No, the error message clearly says: "The owner of this website has blocked your IP" it is probably not Signal, it is the merch company that they are working with And yes I do live in Syria

  • Mrhow7x Sundeep (@Mrhow7x) reported

    @signalapp When video calling using phone horizontal turn video upsidedown. Please fix this bug.

  • inxs_ar InXCes (@inxs_ar) reported

    Thank you @signalapp for working on the problem with the Argentina numbers (+54 and +549), it happens since I use your app. Yesterday more than 40 users were added to my contact list, and it is no coincidence that they all entered together.

  • SocialSkywalker Luke M (@SocialSkywalker) reported

    @Casey Solve two problems. Protect your privacy at the same time. Convince them all to use @signalapp

  • DanielM50659243 Daniel M (@DanielM50659243) reported

    @signalapp Restoring a backup is extremely buggy. Sometimes it'll count up messages found after I enter my passphrase, then crashes. Sometimes it'll not even allow me to enter my passphrase after I select my backup file, and skip to entering my phone number. Help would be great!

  • JessicaLRohlik Jess Rohlik (@JessicaLRohlik) reported

    📱Question… I used to use the @signalapp to video chat with my niece, but I hated it and deleted the app. Problem is, now when I text her, she’ll get my normal texts, but I don’t get any of her replies. Anyone know how to resolve this?? I’d really like to text w/that kid

    Is @signalapp down?

  • Hosseini_ST Hosseini 🇮🇷 (@Hosseini_ST) reported

    @mmrabbani @signalapp Unfortunately I have still the problem. I can't get the code in Iran and @signalapp don't give any answer to us!

  • ambimorph L. Amber O'Hearn 🛡 (@ambimorph) reported

    I'm having a usability problem with @signalapp that just bit me for the third time. Signal is my default texting app and it has the very nice behaviour that if the recipient has Signal, the message is sent encrypted, and if they don't, it falls back to SMS. However, 1/6

  • HobbitsWife Hobbits Wife 💙 (@HobbitsWife) reported

    @signalapp parents and brother on Android and are having problems receiving notifications when they have messages so keep missing them. Working fine on iPhone. Any bugs logged for this?

  • prem82528 Prem Bhati (@prem82528) reported

    @signalapp download very good app What's app again and again shutting down @WhatsApp unstall very soon

  • SiliconShecky Shecky - The Unknown (((Mike))) (@SiliconShecky) reported

    @cillic @youngd241 @signalapp The show them how, write them instead of public, and tell them technically based on their code how without breaking their system. Their blog flat out states they want a better solution and want people to help. I don't have the tech chops to do that.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    @SiliconShecky @youngd241 @signalapp Its all about consent. I can get your contact information and add it to my phone without your consent. And then signal will let me know if you're using it for secure coms. Again, it's a terrible practice for an ap that says its about privacy.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    @SiliconShecky @youngd241 @signalapp But this doesn't say ANYTHING about people not being notified when I joined. THAT is the privacy issue.

  • cillic Carl 🧛 Carrion 🧛 Crawler (@cillic) reported

    For the billionth time. @signalapp, as a privacy company, informing me (and therefore informing others of me) using Signal without their or my consent is terribly tone deaf. I like your ap despite is problems. But this one is easy to fix. Please stop this.

  • MikeRSpencer Mike Spencer (@MikeRSpencer) reported

    @WillBall12 @rushworth_a I'm using @signalapp. There's a slow trickle of people joining, with spikes related to news series of dastardly WhatsApp. But network effects are always an issue for folk migrating. A pita that it's not possible to message between providers.

  • le_pista Cristian, el de las piedras de Georgia (@le_pista) reported

    @signalapp guys something is not working properly, all of my messages have a delay, impossible to hold a conversation with the counterpart, the delay is random and annoying, not the first time seeing this. Colombia.

  • Marj Marjan Safinia (@Marj) reported

    @signalapp I’m no longer getting push notification on iPhone no matter how many times I check my settings, reregister for push notifications, update my app or restart my phone. It renders the app pretty dysfunctional if I have to open it to see I have a message. Help!

  • t56k_ thomas (@t56k_) reported

    @signalapp any service down on signal? my account won't load or change any settings

  • MJ_Madhi Madhi (@MJ_Madhi) reported

    Both end have fine and enough connectivity, even facing issue while sending messages. Delay in delivering txt, delay in receving txt. @signalapp
