Private Messenger#10 Social Networking
iOS Review on June 18, 2020
This is the gold standard for privacy, folks. It doesn't get much better than this. Zero trackers, zero tracking attempts. Signal does exactly what it's supposed to do - be a privacy-focused messenger, and nothing else. One of the rare top-downloaded apps that isn't packed with trackers, ads, or badware.
Signal's Privacy Rating is A. We found 0 different third-party trackers in the Signal app, and there were 0 attempted tracking connections detected during our test.
Blocked tracking attempts.
How was tracker testing done?
Tested using Lockdown v0.4.0.
What was done during the test?
Zero tracking attempts. None. Nada.
How many tracking attempts each time the app is opened?
Did user give consent to tracking before tracking started?
No third-party tracking at all, so no consent necessary.
Any background tracking when app isn't open?
