Encrypted messaging service app Signal said that Facebook will do "what they have to do" to be the top result when users search for Signal on App Store. It also shared a screenshot which shows Facebook's Messenger app as the first search result for "signal" on App Store. The demand for Signal has suddenly increased amid WhatsApp's policy changes.
Facebook is probably more comfortable selling ads than buying them, but they'll do what they have to do in order to be the top result when some people search for 'Signal' in the App Store.— Signal (@signalapp) January 10, 2021
P.S. There will never be ads in Signal, because your data belongs in your hands not ours. pic.twitter.com/waVPcl4wHe
