The company informed people that the app is now back online and also thanked its customer for choosing Signal over any other app.
The problem began on Friday when the company faced outrage because it went down. Earlier the users faced difficulty even in logging in and signing. Later on, there was another bulk of users who were facing problems with sending and receiving a text. While some others faced problems in sending or receiving the text.
