After resolving technical issues that had affected both the mobile and web application on Friday, Signal said: “Thanks to the millions of new Signal users around the world for your patience.”
As a result of the discontent over WhatsApp’s new Terms&Conditions, both Signal and Telegram have hugely benefited from an increase in downloads and users. The surge caused users to experience some technical issues. Many reported problems with sending messages, which lasted for several hours. Signal published a series of tweets stating that, although users might see some errors in their chats, their security would not be affected.
