This wikiHow teaches you how to make voice calls using the Signal Private Messenger app on Android. Signal is a free open source encrypted communication app that maintains your privacy. If the person you are calling also uses Signal, the call will be secured with end-to-end encryption that doesn’t go through a central server. If the person isn’t a Signal user, a standard call will be placed using your phone’s default calling app.

    • – A normal, unprotected call will be placed because the person you’re calling doesn’t have Signal.
    • – A secure, end-to-end encrypted call will be placed because the person you’re calling has Signal.
  5. Wait for the call to connect. If you’re making a secure Signal call, it can take a little longer to connect than a normal call because Signal’s encrypted calls are sent peer-to-peer and don’t go through a central server.
