Signal is an encryption app released by Open Whisper Systems. The app allows you to send group text, pictures, videos completely encrypted, and without having to worry about ANYONE knowing what you are doing.
The code is open source and available for everyone to download on GitHub.com for even experts to fully examine it if they wish to.
- STATEMENT FROM THE PEOPLE BEHIND 'SIGNAL'
"Even if we wanted to, we can't hand your information over to anyone,"
- Founder Moxie Marlinspike says
It is a FREE app for both Android and iOS. Free? yes you don't have to pay a single penny for this incredible app. iPhone users should have no problem finding it, however I am not certain Android users can. But if you can't then the app is split into two apps, one called RedPhone and another called TextSecure.
Signal is getting the spotlight for a various of reasons. Number one being it is a 2 in 1 app / upgrade from the app TextSecure which is able to send encrypted text messages only, and Redphone being able to talk over a secure line. Now comes Signal, an app that does both, for free.
Also because it is for both iOS & Android.
And of course, can't forget that the code is open source so you can use it to create your own encryption software, or take a look at the protocol for the app yourself and then determine wether or not Open Whisper Systems is another company wanting to steal your information.
Ed Snowden the man we all know has even spoken out about the app being useful. Since I find Mr. Snowden a very reliable source, I have no hesitation to download the app.
Ed explains in an interview that Signal is his favorite encryption software.
A few words from the man himself:
"Use anything by Open Whisper Systems".
There are even a signature key that every user has so you can be completely sure you are actually speaking to the person you are speaking to.
What if a hacker got a hold of that signature key?
Don't worry, Open Whisper Systems got your back on that.
If someone gets a hold of it, they won't be able to see what you have said or written in the past, because it will be scrambled.
Well, this to me is an extremely nice news. I can now speak with whomever I want to without having to worry about anyone peeking in on what's going on.
