Here’s how to customize with the new communication app.
Signal Messaging App has been on the trend since the recent backlash against Whatsapp’s new privacy implementation. Once you have installed the app, it’s undeniable that you want to get to know more about it. And if you’re particular with your privacy and security, there are some ways that you can tweak more with its security. Specifically, you can add a screen lock to Signal.
This means that you can turn on the screen lock feature on your iOs device and hide all the messages. Unless you unlock your device through Touch ID or Face ID. In short, you have to authenticate through fingerprint or traditional password.
Here are the Steps on How to Double Secure the Signal Messaging
- Open the Signal App on your device
- Tap on your profile photo on the top-left corner.
- Click “Privacy” option from the overflow menu
- Once it is enabled, you have to customize the “Screen Lock Timeout” that allows users to adjust how long it takes for the lock time.
- From the pop-up window, you can choose and select the time.
After all the steps, you have to send a text message in Signal; you have to unlock the app using your traditional security settings on your mobile device.
How To Use Signal: Creating A Group Chat
While person to person messaging is very important, so are group messages. These eliminate the need for users to send the same message all over again to different people on several occasions. Creating a group chat on Signal is very important and also very simple to do. With WhatsApp forcing its users to share data with Facebook, Signal could be a good alternative.
Signal can be used for official business like say a corporate group chat for people in the same department, or for the boss to send announcements to the group. This can also be used by friends when sending secret messages that shouldn’t be shared with other people. There are many ways for Signal to be used.
