How to transfer WhatsApp chats to Signal

Signal is an encrypted messaging app that offers secure messaging, voice, and video calls with end-to-end encryption.

It allows one to one or group messages that can include files, voice notes, videos, images, voice calls and video calls.

Although users switching over from a different chat platform to Signal can’t take all their media and messages with them, they can easily set up a new group chat.

Users can use this service to move all of their WhatsApp group members to the Signal app.
