An app for private communication.
Signal is an app for simple private communication with friends. It supports end-to-end encrypted instant messaging, voice calling and video calling.
Signal uses your device's data connection (WiFi/3G/4G) to communicate securely, optionally supports plain SMS/MMS to function as a unified messenger, and can also encrypt the stored messages on your device.
A desktop app that can be used on Debian-based GNU/Linux distributions has been released. It requires that the user has first registered on Android or iOS.
