Best answer

In order to connect to Signal from our PC either Mac or Windows 10, we will have to use our smartphone in a style as we can find in WhatsApp web. We do not always have our smartphone at hand and if we also use a messaging application a lot, it is possible that the view suffers more if we only depend on the mobile screen that will always be smaller than a PC screen..

 

Many times to communicate in work groups, we use extended applications such as Telegram or WhatsApp and in this case Signal, thanks to the security it applies, could be a method that many users use for this. That is why having Signal installed on a PC can make it easier for us to have to send or read messages while we work or do other tasks on the computer. If we stop using it, we recommend that you log out to be more secure. That is why we are going to see how to close Signal Desktop session on Windows 10 or Mac.
