Signal is a secure encrypted messaging app. Think of it as a more private alternative to WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Skype, iMessage, and SMS. Here’s why you should seriously consider switching to Signal.

Why Signal Is Special

Signal is available for Android, iPhone, and iPad. There’s also a Signal desktop client for Windows, Mac, and Linux. To join, all you need is a phone number. It’s free.

The user experience of Signal is just like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and other popular chat apps. It’s a messaging app with features like one-to-one messages, groups, stickers, photos, file transfers, voice calls, and even video calls. You can have group chats with up to 1000 people and group calls with up to eight people.

Signal isn’t owned by a big tech company. Instead, Signal is developed by a non-profit foundation and is funded by donations. Unlike Facebook, Signal’s owners aren’t even trying to make money. Signal doesn’t try to gather a bunch of data on you or show you advertisements.

The latter could be talking about Messenger Rooms integrations, cross-story sharing, and more.pc
Currently, WhatsApp is the largest messaging service in the world with over 2 billion monthly active users. Following that, Telegram accounts for 400 million and Signal stands at a ballpark of 10-20 million monthly active users. Looking at the raw numbers, it’s clear that WhatsApp is wildly popular and almost ubiquitous while Telegram is catching up and Signal seems to have just joined the million downloads race. Having said that, numbers don’t tell you everything and that’s why we bring you a detailed comparison between WhatsApp vs Telegram vs Signal.

In this article, we rigorously analyze the security models of all three messaging services and also look at their distinct features. Now with all that said, let’s go through the article and find out who wins this battle.

But a growing number of well-trod and more offbeat institutions have found ways to stoke your curiosity from wherever you are, with digital tours and livestreams. Here are a few ways to cultivate wonder without venturing beyond your living room.

Today’s “Question of the Day” on SQL Server Central, Cleaning up the Identity, is about using DBCC CHECKIDENT to reset the seed value of an IDENTITY column to a specific starting value. The question asked what the next Identity value would be after removing all rows in the table via the TRUNCATE TABLE statement. The “new seed value” is “0”, and the “increment value” is “1”. The correct answer is “0”, and the CHECKIDENT documentation is in agreement with this behavior.

Gmail is one of the most popular email services so far, and you will very probably want to use it as a mailbox for your web or mobile app. It is safe and credible, which is crucial to prevent your emails from going into the spam folder. That’s why we decided to flesh out how to send emails with Gmail API.
In this Python tutorial, we will learn how to send an email using Google Gmail API service.

Using Gmail API, we can Read and send messages, manage drafts and attachments, search threads and messages, work with labels, setup push notifications, and manage Gmail settings, all in one place.
The GmailApp service of Google Apps Script doesn’t support drafts creation but you use the Gmail API to programatically create drafts in your mailbox.

You can create basic HTML drafts or you can also create drafts with attachments as shown in the following example. It can also be extended to create duplicate drafts in Gmail - you fetch the source draft using the Gmail API itself, parse the MIME message, edit the text or html if required, and save it as a new draft.
