From the unofficial Signal Wiki
Other languages:

This is an automatically-generated list of Signal features that are described in this wiki.

Features can be turned on and off remotely (via the server). But they can also manually be toggled on and off via feature flags. This is usually only possible if you build Signal yourself.

Editing this list[edit | edit source]

If you'd like to edit a specific feature's information, please visit its corresponding article and edit the usage of Template:Feature there.

If you'd like to change how the list itself is presented, then edit this page.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. There doesn't appear to be an official expansion of this abbreviation, but it may be interpreted as "delete on every [device]" or "delete on everyone's [devices]". For example usage, see this commit.
  2. No longer used in 6.11.7[9]
  3. In 6.2.0, no longer used; instead, the feature flag for phone number privacy, android.pnp, decides whether the feature is active github:signalapp/Signal-Android/commit/a2415261bd39092020a7e02b402ad20878808212
