Signal has rolled out an update to its iOS and Android apps, adding a blur option for faces. It's a handy tool if you plan on photographing any protests while protecting the identity of the protesters.
Signal is now the messaging app of choice for the European Commission. The messaging app has been praised for its security prioritization, as well as the simplicity and ease of use. For similar reasons, the UK Conservative Party made the switch in December.
You may not have heard of it, but Signal is one of the most popular private message apps on the Play Store, and now the UK's majority political party has chosen to use it over WhatsApp, signaling a big change in how government messaging is about to take place.
Open Whisper Systems found out that the Egyptian government had blocked access to its encrypted chat app Signal. It has now rolled out an update to circumvent government censorship through a technique called domain fronting.
