National Online Safety Bulletin for Parents – Signal

Please click on the link below to see our latest eSafety bulletin for Parents from the National Online Safety Hub.  This week it’s all about Signal.

Signal is a multimedia messaging service (previously known as TextSecure) that provides secure chats between users. It is encrypted, so any intercepted communication cannot be read by attackers. Users can send one-to-one messages or set up group chats. The service is free, has no adverts and doesn’t track users’ location like many other messaging platforms. The app experienced a popularity boom in early 2021 as large numbers of users left WhatsApp over perceived privacy issues.

In the guide, you’ll find tips on a number of potential risks such as a false sense of security, vulnerability to hackers and disappearing messages.
