After a lengthy outage, privacy-focused messaging app Signal is back online.
“Signal is back!” the company tweeted this weekend. “Thanks to the millions of new Signal users around the world for your patience. Your capacity for understanding inspired us while we expanded capacity.”
“Today exceeded even our most optimistic projections,” Signal said on Friday “Millions upon millions of new users are sending a message that privacy matters. We appreciate your patience.”
Signal also indicated that an “unfortunate side effect” is that some users “might see errors” in some of their chats. If you’re having trouble, follow the steps below. “The errors do not affect chat security & will be automatically fixed in the next app update,” Signal says.
