Troubleshooting Question

Is Signal a safe and secure app for iPhone? iMessage? Mac?

Last Modified: 2021-01-02
I am thinking about using Signal for iPhone communications.


for end-to-end encryption technology on my iPhone. But, what does this mean for my iMessage? Reading text messages on my MacBook?

How long does it take for a fast PC which a consumer may own, say a gaming PC, to crack the encryption?

Are there better options? Are there any brands which can communicate with other brands? Isn't there a communications/security standard  I should be shopping for rather than a specific software product?
