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.
