One of the most important parts of our lives today is messaging. We send thousands of messages every day to our family, friends, and even colleagues. These messages can be simple greetings or even contain confidential data or media. Recently, the digital world was plagued with security issues, with news coming in that many popular social media platforms had resorted to some shady activity and as a result, the seemingly private information of users was no longer safe. To counter this breach of data, the concept of end to end encryption was introduced.

However, even with these security protocols, there are some apps that do not adhere to these norms and sell user data anyways. If you are tired of this ambiguity, you should go for the Signal messaging app.

The Signal Messaging app allows you to perform cross border calls for free and this is extremely helpful if a contact in your list travels abroad and has to change his/her phone number. In such cases, it is very easy to update the contact details on the Signal Messaging app.

In this tutorial, we will show you how to store an international telephone number using the Signal Messaging app.

Step 1. Open the Signal Messaging app on your smartphone.
