About this Deal

SIGNAL IS YOUR best choice for text messaging if security and privacy are your most important priorities. It's growing in popularity and gaining more useful features over time, and it's easier than ever to get your existing messages into Signal—and to move them between phones if you upgrade to a new one.

The main appeal of Signal is the end-to-end encryption that means no one can intercept and read your messages: That includes hackers, Apple and Google, government and law enforcement agencies, and anyone working at Signal itself.

On Android, Signal can also double-up as your SMS app (something iPhones don't allow). For contacts who aren't on Signal, the app will send a standard text message instead—this breaks the end-to-end encryption, but you'll be able to see inside the app which messages are which. For maximum security, get as many of your friends on Signal as you can.

There are more reasons to use Signal too, including encrypted voice and video calls, disappearing messages, group chats, file sharing, a desktop app, and more. For now, we'll focus on how to get your messages moved between apps and devices.
