The easy way to share your location on the Signal Messenger

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 got the basic setup done, you can now start sending messages to your contacts. While messages are mostly text-based, you also have the option to share your location, or any particular location with your recipient.

This is helpful when you want to meet up at a certain location, or may you want to invite someone over to your home, and they don’t know the route. Keep in mind that Signal makes use of your default map application. So, on an iPhone, you will have to use Apple Maps, while on Android, it is mostly Google Maps.

Nevertheless, the process remains the same, and we are going to show you how you can share your location, or any location, using the Signal Messaging app.
