When Signal users opened the app on Monday morning, the app did not open and a message appeared: “Signal is facing a technical problem. We are working hard to restore the service as soon as possible.
The company confirmed this on Twitter and said, “Guys, wait a little! The signal is currently shut down due to a shutdown that affects parts of our service. We are working to fix it.”
Following this move of WhatsApp, there was a new debate around privacy around the world. Tesla CEO Elon Musk also urged the use of Signal Op. After his two-word tweet ‘Use Signal’, its downloads increased unexpectedly.
