Signal down, huh? At the beginning of 2021, the encrypted chat app saw a fresh wave user who do want to preserve their chats confidential. Here’s how to check that Signal is down for everyone else
- Check the Status of Signal Website for Official Updates
Go to the website of the project Signal Status (status.signal.org) to see the latest details of any outages.
- Inspect Signal Status Site for Authorities Updates
Go to the main signal status site of the task (status.signal.org) to see the latest information on any interruption.
- Head to Down detector for User Reports
If Signal’s status webpage does not really tell there’s a problem—or doesn’t load—you should look at the Down detector Signal page.
This webpage is based on information from current users. When other people have problems, you’ll see how many users are reporting problems. Users will see a timeline of problem reports during the last 24 hours to get an idea of when the problem started.
- Look at the Social Network Accounts of Signal
Signal shares details about its Twitter status. Signal Twitter is a great place to get updates on what’s going on. You can check out the latest updates to Signal on Twitter even if you don’t have a Twitter account.
