Messaging App Signal Faces Global Network Outage, Company Confirms
Encrypted instant messaging app Signal was hit by an outage late Sunday that interrupted services on the platform.
Now Signal is back up and running at 100 per cent, the company has confirmed, after the app faced widespread outage early morning on Monday. Signal users had faced outages since about 8:30 AM IST today. While outage tracker Downdetector showed outages only in the US ( not show signal outage for India yet), several users on Twitter did report outages on the instant messaging app.
"Signal is experiencing technical difficulties. We are working hard to restore the service as quickly as possible," an in-app message read. The company, in its earlier tweet, said that the outage is due to a hosting outage that is affecting parts of its service. "We're working on bringing it back up," the message read.
Downdetector said that user reports indicated that Signal is having problems since Sunday, 11:05 PM EDT (Monday 8:35 AM IST)
