from HTYP, the free directory anyone can edit if they can prove to me that they're not a spambot

question/1

  • Question: how do you add someone who already has Signal installed? The only way I can find to add a new person is to "invite" them, which just sends them a text inviting them to install Signal.
    • Answers:
      • In the desktop app, "search" for their phone number, and then send them a message.
      • Unverified: In the mobile app, it may be that you just add people to the regular Android address book and they will show up in Signal if they also have Signal installed.

question/2

  • Question: After initiating a conversation via entering someone's phone number, how do you give that contact a name via the desktop app?
