How to Delete Signal Conversation on iPhone, iPad or Android


If your Signal conversation list is getting full, one option you’ve got is to delete conversations that are no longer active and that you don’t want to archive. The steps to remove a Signal conversation on an iPhone or iPad are a bit different from this process on an Android device. In this video I’ll show the steps to do this on an iOS device, and I’ll speak to where that’s different if you’re following along on an Android device. Examples of all instructions in the steps can be seen in the YouTube video below.

  1. Launch the Signal app on your iPhone, iPad or Android device, and then locate the conversation you want to delete.
  2. If you’re using an iPhone or iPad, slowly swipe from right to left across the tab associated with the Signal discussion you want to delete.

  3. Tap “Delete” if you’re using an iPhone or iPad, or tap the trash can icon on your Android device. The Delete Chat menu is displayed
  4. Tap “Delete” again to confirm that you want to delete this Signal conversation. That specific Signal conversation will be removed from your Signal conversation list and deleted from your device.
