As you know over the past several months I have tried to disassociate myself from Facebook due to privacy and other reasons. Therefore no longer using FB Messenger or WhatsApp. Instead You may text message me Only, on Signal.
Signal is available for iPhones and Android. Get it here: https://signal.org/install/
Signal works like your existing messaging app. We can send pictures and video, make calls, and start group chats. The best part is, no one else can see any of it, not even the people who make Signal!
