On the next screen, enter the OTP you will receive as an SMS to your registered number.
Next, you can choose between two setup options –
Transfer from the older device – If you had an older device that ran the Signal app, you can migrate that data onto the new device.
Register without transferring – This is the option you want to choose if you are new to the platform.
Set up an alphanumeric passcode that will keep the app protected when you are not in control.
You are now ready to use the highly secure Signal Messaging app on your device. Do keep in mind, that setting up the Signal account only happens on your smartphone. Once you create an account on the Signal app, you can then use the same on your PC.
