There are a multitude of reasons for learning how to use the Signal app. Signal is a messaging app, which has been built from the ground up to protect your private information. Not only does it come with many features that keep your conversations secure – such as disappearing messages and photo- blurring tools – but every message you send is end-to-end encrypted by default. There is no need to opt in, it is enabled from the get-go.

Apple's App Privacy labels on the App Store now reveal an incredible amount of information apps like Facebook Messenger collect about you. The new approach has made many people start looking for more privacy-friendly alternatives. If that sounds like you, you are in luck, as Signal could be exactly what you need.
