Signal-BA: My personal fork of Signal for Android

Signal-BA is my personal programming project designed to boost privacy in the Signal messaging app for Android.

It has multiple differences from Signal-Android:

  • Does not send read receipts regardless of if they are enabled
  • Does not send typing indicators regardless of if they are enabled
  • Remotely deleted messages from users will be ignored, and still available on your device
  • Defaults to using high quality mode for sending image`s
  • Allows sending up to 100 media items at one time rather than signal’s default 32
  • Doesn’t have popups asking for ratings on the play store
  • Disables pin reminders by default
  • Turns on incognito keyboard by default

Signal-BA is mainly a personal project, but you can try it by installing the apk here.
