This is a desktop client for Signal Private Messenger, an app for iPhone and Android that ensures privacy by encrypting data traffic.
Privacy in communications has long been a major concern, particularly among Internet users. We’re sure you feel that way too. If you want to talk to your contacts anonymously and privately, now there are services like Signal Private Messenger. Private messaging and chat from the browser.
This service is on the rise because it requires far fewer permissions than WhatsApp and collects less data. Such as contact or user metadata such as IP address, date of use, network operator used or location, and so on.

The app is extremely anonymous even though it uses your real phone number and contact list. The following are some of the features that Signal has:
- Send messages be it text, pictures, or videos to individual contacts or groups.
- End-to-end encryption.
- System for organizing messages and conversations.
- Messages that have been sent and read will be lost.

- There is a night mode option.
- Picture message editing options before sending.
- Messages are sent quickly and reliably, even on slow networks.
Personal alternative to WhatsApp or Facebook Messenger
Compared to other applications that do not make privacy and communication encryption as their advantages, this application stands as an alternative against it. In terms of how it works, it’s similar in some cases: we need to install the app on the iPhone or Android in order to use the desktop client by reading the QR code.
