You want to start using the Signal Private Messenger on your phone and computer? This page will guide you through all the process you need and how the Signal Messenger works.
In this era, there are many Messengers available globally. But preferences depends on what the user wants to get out of it. For instance, the major purposes of using messengers are;
- for a tottal secured privacy
- it is an instant text messenger
- it cut the cost of sending SMS
- the video and audio call recording
- create channels for businesses and organizations meeting
- use for receiving and sending SMS in replace of the phone SMS,
- and many more
Signal is also one of the best and highly recommended social messenger when it comes to end-to-end encryption. You information remains intact.
Signal private messenger can be used “independently” across all devices, just like the Telegram messenger. To me, I guess this is where WhatsApp flopped; expected that your phone WhatsApp has to be connected first and consistently before you can use it on any device (like PC and Desktop). Although Facebook CEO is working towards changing this annoying concept. Learn how to connect WhatsApp on PC/Desktop here.
The only similarity between Whatsapp and Signal messenger is that you have the bar-code to scan to link or connect your account on another device.
But after its connected, for Signal Messenger, you can switch off your phone, or disconnect the network, yet your account will still be active on other devices when you linked your account. No doubt to agree that Signal is the best WhatsApp alternative with new stunning features.
Once you login, you see all your files, contacts, and messages at all time and on any device.
