    I like Signal because it’s on all platforms so I can message Linux and windows and android people all in the same clients. I’ve had coworkers leave the Apple ecosystem due to the Mac issues and most went to Linux or windows 10. So signal is the messages. It’s the closest thing to iMessage there is. I don’t see Apple opening iMessage to windows android and Linux and you can’t text from those, so for now signal is the best solution. The encryption is nice too but frankly everything communicated should be encrypted now due to hacking risk.

    Thats strange you’d say Signal can communicate only/ otjer Signal users…!!

    I use Signal to send and receive SMS messages from people all day long who have never heard of Signal

    No offence intended, Jay; but are you sure you’re not just sending SMS messages in the regular way.

    It’s the same with WhatsApp. You and the recipient both have to have the app on the phone to used the service, but iMessage and SMS messages can still be sent in the conventional way.

    As I understand it – could be wrong – the app “knows” whether the recipient has its equivalent in the same way that iMessage knows whether the recipient is an iPhone user.

    Followed your setup steps carefully and diligently. Got to step 7…
    “Select “Link New Device – Scan QR Code” and point the phones camera at the QR code on the Mac screen”

    When Signal failed, no matter the number of times I tried (and retried).

    Signal, an app I had hoped to install and use, proves a complete waste of my time. App deleted.

      Been using it for a year on iPhone and for MONTHS on my Mac, and never skipped a beat…

    This also makes Signal “an excellent choice” if you’re a terrorist or other criminal – great!
