  • criskotsu Vásquez (@criskotsu) reported

    Used to call my mom through @signalapp when my VPN had issues and I was finally happy I had an app I can communicate directly with her. Well, Signal was having issues for weeks and now’s officially under firewall. Another day, China, another day.

  • rphi1017 Don Knupp (@rphi1017) reported

    @LDinclaux @signalapp Could This be an issue with IOS version? I use Android & see my blocked contacts only in my blocked contacts list. Either way it's a problem but it could be helpful to know if it happens only on one type of phone.

  • kamey258 Kamey (@kamey258) reported

    @volpegabriel87 @signalapp it's because your internet is slow so it takes time for a photo to load, i don't have that issue while I'm connected to my home WiFi, but once i connect to school or public WiFi that thing happens to me too.

  • RespawnMonkey 🐒Motherboard|🖥hardware means heart. (@RespawnMonkey) reported

    @signalapp It's been hell trying to send texts as of let. Forcing me to uninstall the app. When I reinstalled it...I never got any of my texts back. Like I thought they are supposed to be backed up. Help me understand.

  • sukesh1020 Sukesh (@sukesh1020) reported

    @iambappan @signalapp So many are against it. And how does it help anyone?

  • ruza_eu Pavel Ruzicka (@ruza_eu) reported

    @signalapp Is there an End of Life of supporting Legacy groups? Any date I can rely on old groups will work without a problem?

  • CaptainBalou1 Marco (@CaptainBalou1) reported

    I got one update of the @signalapp a day ago but the problem persisted. But today in the morning suddenly all worked fine again. Possible issue in the core application server side?! 🤔 It works again - this is the most important!

  • milan85kojic Milan Kojić (@milan85kojic) reported

    @signalapp Person from my phone's contacts does not appear in Signal. Where can I get help with that?

  • Ashvith0010 Ashvith (@Ashvith0010) reported

    @signalapp I am actually not interested in crypto currency, but I would not care about it. The first thing team signal can do is fix the damn UI. It is so inconsistent, and the colours don't even make sense. We need more wallpapers, and if they're SVG, they can be made adaptive I guess.

  • Orange2213 Orange22 (@Orange2213) reported

    @signalapp Why fix when nothing was wrong? Nobody asked to send money via signal. Just stop this. Focus on stability and customization features. Expand controls for admins in group chats!

  • Bharathshnkar20 Bharath Shankar (@Bharathshnkar20) reported

    @signalapp messages doesn't get delivered on time it always get buffered for at least few seconds... If i exit app msgs doesn't get delivered at all n get delivered once I open the app.why is this issue..if this continues I may uninstall the app..

  • CaptainBalou1 Marco (@CaptainBalou1) reported

    I was using @signalapp an hour ago without any issue but now the app on my Android phone is running for a second and then closing itself again. No error message... Restarted the phone already. Issue persists. Confusing.

  • b_deerfield B. Ruth Deerfield, M.D. (@b_deerfield) reported

    @signalapp In January 2014, he told a German TV interviewer that he gave all of his information to American journalists reporting on American issues.

  • b_deerfield B. Ruth Deerfield, M.D. (@b_deerfield) reported

    @signalapp In March 2014, Snowden said he had reported policy or legal issues related to spying programs to more than ten officials, but as a contractor had no legal avenue to pursue further whistleblowing.

  • b_deerfield B. Ruth Deerfield, M.D. (@b_deerfield) reported

    @signalapp and that the American public deserved a chance to see these issues determined by open courts ... today, a secret program authorized by a secret court was, when exposed to the light of day, found to violate Americans' rights."

  • b_deerfield B. Ruth Deerfield, M.D. (@b_deerfield) reported

    @signalapp Snowden said he wanted to "embolden others to step forward" by demonstrating that "they can win." He also said that the system for reporting problems did not work.

  • b_deerfield B. Ruth Deerfield, M.D. (@b_deerfield) reported

    @signalapp Snowden said in a January 2014 interview with German television that the NSA does not limit its data collection to national security issues, accusing the agency of conducting industrial espionage. Using the example of German company Siemens, he said,

  • volpegabriel87 Gabrieλ Voλpe (@volpegabriel87) reported

    @Razzee @CampingWeller @signalapp It's not my cam, it happens on different phones (Sony Xperia and OnePlus 5T). The photos are okay, it's just broken in Signal.

  • LWhatsHisFace ɱark WhatsHisFace (@LWhatsHisFace) reported

    @tdrud @signalapp 100% using monero's draw backs as an excuse to perform an obvious pump and dump. Maybe they'll use the money they earn to try and fix the problems they pointed out...

  • steebchen Luca Steeb (@steebchen) reported

    @signalapp Maybe improve the messaging experience first. There are so many bugs, connecting issues in Signal Desktop, UI etc... why bother payments with some random shitcoin? Wanna 10x my donation or what?

  • airwolf85 Wilf K 🇬🇧 🇨🇦 (@airwolf85) reported

    @MarioSuper007 @signalapp I am already a Threema issue. I don't see the need to migrate to Signal. It still has its uses.

  • anulpan Anul Pandya (@anulpan) reported

    @signalapp We are still facing issue here in India, messages are not delivering!!

  • eey0re Oliver (@eey0re) reported

    @Affenrakete @signalapp It's still the most secure messenger option, I think. They just clearly don't need our money if they're off having cryptocurrency adventures while there are still private message problems to solve.

  • paulopereira Paulo Pereira (@paulopereira) reported

    @signalapp Proud of this great work? Sorry, nobody wants it. How about you fix the sharing of videos which still doesn’t work? That would be useful.

  • atbigelow August Bigelow (@atbigelow) reported

    @signalapp The hand-waving from all the LEGITIMATE issues people have with adding cryptocurrency transactions to a communication client is beyond ridiculous.

  • LoveKremer Neil Kremer (@LoveKremer) reported

    @signalapp Fix the ring issue first, the incoming call doesn't ring the phone. It is nasty and biggest big that need fixing first.

  • Timmania117 Timmania (@Timmania117) reported

    @signalapp I wanted to believe, and switch over to signal completely. But this kind of stuff just doesn't seem right for an application that still has a lot of problems with the basic messaging aspect. Privacy has been dead for a while. This does not help revive it.
