In a study carried out by experts, it was shown that this app only saves the account creation date in its database. As well as the time the user was connected for the last time.

Therefore you can be totally sure that no one will ever get your conversations. The reason this is a point-to-point system, that is, it is only stored when the receiver is connected.

Why migrate from WhatsApp to Signal?

Although when we refer to messaging applications there are several pros and cons in each of them. And even when there is diversity in the market like WhatsApp and Signal, today we will evaluate the reasons why Signal has positioned itself in the networks.

Signal is an independent organization Non-profit organization trained to allow its users to share information without even the company being able to prove it.

One of its outstanding functions is that it contains the option of automatic deletion of either messages or photos that you select. This option ranges from 15 seconds to a week.

It also includes the option to block screenshots and one of the most curious is that it allows you to hide faces. When sending an image we can blur the face of one or more people who appear there.
