Elon Musk simple tweet helps boost two unrelated ‘Signal’ companies


Over the past few days, Signal had a long list of user sign-ups, which prompted delays in phone number verifications of new accounts across multiple cellphone providers

Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there,” according to Signal.

Signal is a free, non-profit cross-platform encrypted messaging service. The app uses the Internet to send one-to-one and group messages, which can include files, voice notes, images and videos. It is not tied to any major tech company and is focused on privacy. Thus, it has no ads and marketing trackers.
