Signal's about as good as it gets in secure messaging.
Considered one of the best secure messengers available, Signal’s popularity is well deserved. It’s encryption is second-to-none, it supports text, voice, and video calling, and it’s simple enough for anyone to comfortably adopt. It’s quickly become the de facto choice for journalists, activists, and everyday citizens concerned about their privacy.
Send encrypted group, text, picture, and video messages using your existing phone number and address book. There are no separate logins, usernames, passwords, or PINs to manage, and nobody- not even Signal employees- can read your messages. Ever.
If you’re considering a secure option to replace your everyday messenger, I highly recommend Signal.

Signal supports E2EE text, voice, and video calling. GIPHY search is integrated, and messages can self-destruct. It’s pretty epic.
The user experience is simple and intuitive. Users of any age can adopt Signal with confidence.
While generally simple and easy to use, Signal has a few rough edges (although it’s getting more refined with each release).
