TO many people have recently adopted Signal messenger to protect their user data and privacy, which means that many users are still trying to deal with the application.
As a result, a lot is still relatively unknown about how it works, and one key feature is too important to do without – the ability to delete sent messages or cancel sending a message.
Failure to do as much IMessage from Apple the application is one of the reasons why many of its users switched to Signal or WhatsAppthat allow you to delete sent messages before the recipient sees them.
How to cancel sending a message in Signal
The first thing to be sure about if you want to cancel sending a message to Signal is that you need to download the latest version of the application, as some of Signalolder versions do not allow you to delete messages after they have been sent.
However, if you’ve installed a newer version, the process is relatively simple:
- Open a chat and find the message you want to delete.
- Press and hold the message until other options appear on the screen.
- Click on the trash can icon that appears above the onscreen keyboard.
- When presented with an option, select “Remove for All.” Then confirm.
That’s all. After you followed these four steps, the message was successfully deleted, but that does not mean that the message will definitely not be visible.
