Signal Sees Meteoric Rise In Number As Users Leave WhatsApp
Verification codes are currently delayed across several providers because so many new people are trying to join Signal right now (we can barely register our excitement). We are working with carriers to resolve this as quickly as possible. Hang in there.

Although Musk didn’t mention Facebook or WhatsApp, it’s highly unlikely that it’s pure coincidence. The Tesla CEO has never hidden his criticism for Facebook and its founder Mark Zuckerberg. He also tweeted a meme criticizing Facebook for its role in helping members of the mob that stormed the US Capitol organize online.
Signal has fixed the verification issues and says everyone can register again. “Everyone should be able to register without delay again. Thanks to all of the carriers who flipped the right switches so that people can keep switching,” Signal tweeted.
