When Signal users opened the app on Monday morning, the app did not open and instead, a message appeared that read: “Signal is experiencing a technical problem. We are working hard to restore service as soon as possible.
Signal App Down Globally
Hold tight, folks! Signal is currently down, due to a hosting outage affecting parts of our service. We’re working on bringing it back up.

The company also confirmed the same on Twitter and said, “Guys, wait a bit! A signal is currently down due to a hosting outage affecting parts of our service. We are working to fix it.”
After this move of WhatsApp, there was a renewed debate about privacy all over the world. Tesla CEO Elon Musk also insisted on the use of the Signal app. After his two-word tweet ‘Use Signal’, its downloads increased unexpectedly.
