Signal messenger. How to use it, and what can it do? | Onlinesim
Signal is a trendy application in India. The program allows messaging, like WhatsApp. The cross-platform service gives users the ability to exchange encrypted SMS on iOS and Android phones and Windows devices.
Signal has end-to-end encryption of messages with media files transmitted from one user to another. The Signal app allows you to make and video with voice calls, share photos, videos, and send links.
To use Signal, you need to create an account and register a personal phone number. The Signal account is tied to an automatically generated number, i.e., a private key. The private key in the app is linked to a different number, namely to the user's specified phone number. You don't need to inform Signal about your actual phone number, like a fake sim.
Users have a Signal account tied to their mobile number, so you don't have to enter a password into the messenger system. A Signal account is connected to a single number so that you can activate the mobile application on only one device at a time.
Re-registering on a new device needs access to the mobile number to get the Signal verification code. For enhanced protection, you can enable registration lock, which prevents another account registration on a different device without the PIN previously applied during Signal registration.
