How to Delete Signal Account on iPhone or iPad


Signal is an open-source communication platform that offers chat, file transfer, voice and video call services. But unlike other communication platforms, such as WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, all communications on Signal are encrypted from end-to-end, helping ensure your privacy and security. If you gave Signal a try and decided it wasn’t for you, deleting your Signal account on your iPhone or iPad only takes a few seconds. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.
