signal iconSignal Encrypted Messenger has become increasingly popular among smartphone users, thanks above all else to its emphasis on privacy and security. Signal chats are end-to-end encrypted, meaning no one – not even the Signal service – can see the messages that you send and receive to other users.

In addition, Signal supports the creation of group chats, and like regular conversations in the app, the Signal service has no record of your group memberships, group titles, group avatars, or group attributes.

Group features in Signal include the ability to invite members via a group link or QR code, in-chat @mentions, admin controls to edit group info, remove members, and adjust the disappearing message timer.

How to Create a New Signal Group
