If you are one of the millions of new converts to the private messaging app Signal, then welcome! We are thrilled that such a privacy-centric app exists on both iOS and Android users (as well as Mac, Windows, and Linux). While Signal has always been secure and end-to-end encrypted, it hasn't always been the most fun-looking or customizable app, nor has it had as many personalization features. Thankfully, these features are finally starting to roll out to users, including one of our favorites — stickers! We'll show you how to add and use stickers in your Signal chats. Let's get started.

How to add and use stickers in the Signal messaging app

  1. Open the Signal app.
  2. Tap on a message thread or start a new message.
  3. Tap on the sticker icon in the Signal message composer.

Signal has built its privacy-first reputation on the grounds that everything in the app is end-to-end encrypted, including things you wouldn't think about, like stickers.

Because Signal's stickers are so secure, there aren't as many pre-installed options in the app as there are on some of the other best messaging apps like Telegram, Messenger, or WhatsApp. However, you can rest assured that you won't be sending any malicious code or malware when you share fun stickers with your friends.

You do have the option to create your own custom stickers with the sticker creator feature in the Signal Desktop app, which is available on Mac, Linux, and Windows. Alternatively, you can search for stickers on Twitter with the #makeprivacystick hashtag. Signal has also added other customization features like custom chat backgrounds, text bubble colors, and profiles. Now you can truly make the app feel like your own safe space!
