What is Signal?

Signal is an instant messaging application. It was born in 2013, and is an alternative to others such as WhatsApp or Telegram. It is not such a well-known app, but it is very practical as it offers maximum privacy for Internet users.

Encrypted messages

Signal uses an end-to-end encryption protocol for all communications that is called Open Whispers Systems. This means that the messages leave your cell phone already encrypted, and these are only decrypted when they reach the recipient’s mobile. This makes for great security and if someone were to intercept them on the way, they would not be able to read them.

In fact, Signal’s encryption is so popular and efficient that WhatsApp decided to use it when this type of technology began to be implemented.
