European Commission has chosen the Signal app to secure its communications
The European Commission has decided to adopt for its staff the popular cross-platform encrypted messaging service Signal for its communications. The news was first reported earlier this month by the Politico website, a message issued on the commission’s internal messaging boards asked employees of the European Commission to use Signal. Of course, Signal have to be used only to send non-classified, but sensitive information, because classified documents must be transmitted through more secure channels.
Signal could represent the privileged communication channel for communications between internal personnel staff and people outside the organization.
