Signal is an application that is being used by more and more people now. Signal is a messaging application available for iPhone, iPad, Android, Windows, Mac and Linux. The application was developed by Signal Foundation and non-profit company Signal Messenger LLC. The app was created by Moxy Marilyn Spike, an American cryptographer and currently the CEO of Signal Messenger.
WhatsApp is currently the most popular messaging app. But recently WhatsApp has dropped some terms and conditions. People have a fear that our privacy will be exposed if we use WhatsApp after that. So people search for another app in the Play Store. The signal is the result of that search. The signal app has only been popular for a few days now. The signal is mostly used by people who use WhatsApp. Someone who wants privacy is sure to like the signal.
The new terms and conditions released by WhatsApp are the reason why the signal is gaining popularity quickly. WhatsApp, a chatting app, was first launched on Facebook to become a social media platform. Signal is an open source app. It has End to Encryption system. WhatsApp also has this feature. However, the chat on this system will only be unexpected for 7 days from WhatsApp. But there is a system that can schedule the time to delete the message in the signal. So the message disappears by the minute.
It also has the facility to hide the number of the sender of the message. The message can only be hidden in the standard WhatsApp application. What makes the signal different from that is that it has a video call system. 5 people can make a video call at the same time. But it does not have the status system like in WhatsApp. It is a chat application only ion which does not have the status feature. The Signal Foundation was created by WhatsApp co-founder Brian Acton and Marlinspike.
