The Signal messaging app is an instant messaging application that works on the principle of true end to end encryption. A lot of people have been switching to this app, ever since Whatsapp introduced a new set of terms of use, that allowed their parent company, Facebook, to access absolutely every bit of data that is shared on the Whatsapp platform.

What is even more baffling is that you end up losing access to the Whatsapp account if you don’t accept these terms of use. All of these factors have started a revolution, where users are fully switching to the more secure Signal Messaging App.

If you have downloaded your copy of the Signal app, and you want to set it up, this tutorial will teach you how you can go from start to finish in just a few seconds. Let’s get started.
