Enter your country code and phone number, press “Register” and hit continue to verify your number. Once verified, you’ll be prompted to set Signal as your default SMS app, so continue by pressing “Yes”. Now, another pop-up banner will ask you to merge your existing messages with Signal Private Messenger. So tap on it to copy all your SMS conversations from the stock Messaging app to Signal. Note: To have encrypted conversations between two users, both of them should have Signal Private Messenger installed on their device. You can simply open up any contact and press the “Invite to Signal” banner to send them a download link for the app.
Step 3: Encrypt calls and texts on AndroidOnce the other person has installed Signal on their device, the banner will disappear and you will be able to have secured conversations. You can then “Send Signal message” to the other user and you will be able to see a lock icon next to the text. In order to make a secure phone call, press the phone icon on the top-right corner (with the lock icon). The top of the screen will read “Signal Call” which denotes that the call is taking place over an encrypted network line.
