 Signal, the messaging app is running again after suffering a global outage for a couple of days. Many users of the app were unable to send messages to each other. The app has seen a massive surge in downloads amidst the WhatsApp privacy policy crisis, especially after Elon Musk tweeted about the alternative. Announcing the news about Signal working properly, the co-founder and CEO of the messaging app, Moxie Marlinspike apologised to the users for the inconvenience caused and assured them that their migration will “goes more smoothly”.


“Rough couple of days! Thanks everyone for being so supportive, and to everyone who reached out. Really nice to come back here after all that and see so many words of encouragement, and so sweet to hear the stories of what it felt like to be “without signal” online for a while,” Marlinspike tweeted.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        Signal, a private messaging app, is currently topping charts on Apple’s App Store, ahead of rivals Telegram and WhatsApp. The shift towards Signal has been driven by the change in WhatsApp’s privacy policy, which has caused an uproar. While Signal has many features that one would have seen on WhatsApp or other messaging apps, the new user interface can leave some users confused. We explain in detail how to set up, use Signal, and the key features.
