Signal has seen a rise in downloads following a change in WhatsApp’s privacy terms, which required WhatsApp users to share their data with both Facebook Inc and Instagram.
Signal users might see errors in some chats as a side effect to the outage, but will be resolved in the next update of the app, the company said bit.ly/3im0aQ1 in a tweet.
The company added that the error will not affect the security of the chat.
The Silicon Valley-based non-profit organization Signal Foundation was established in February 2018 and was co-founded by Brian Acton. The foundation was co-founded by WhatsApp, which was later sold to Facebook and provided $50 million Initial funding.
