What does two tick marks mean on the Signal Messaging app
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.
In this article, we are going to talk about the various symbols or tick marks involved in the Signal Messaging app.
Whenever you send a message to a contact on the Signal Messaging app, there are tick marks that appear next to a message which denotes the current status.
Single Tick – The moment you send the message to your contact, a single tick will appear next to the message. This single tick means that the message has been successfully sent from your end.
Double Tick – If the message you send has been received by the contact, the single tick will transform into a double tick. This means that the send-receive operation is complete.
Darkened double tick – If you and your contact have enabled read receipts on the Signal Messaging app, the double tick will transform into a darkened double tick. This means that your message has been read by the recipient.
