Moving from WhatsApp to Signal is as easy as creating your profile on the latter by providing your phone number and then uninstalling the former app from your device. But moving chats from WhatsApp and Signal isn’t possible natively. This could be one of the reasons that has made many users stick to the Facebook-owned app. However, there is a workaround to move your WhatsApp groups to the Signal app by following some simple steps. These are equally applicable for both Android and iOS users.
Before getting started with this tutorial, it is important to note that the workaround is applicable only in moving WhatsApp groups to Signal. This doesn’t allow you to move your WhatsApp chats to Signal. It can also not be used to move your existing WhatsApp group chats to the Signal app.
How to move WhatsApp groups to Signal
STEP 1: First download the Signal app on your Android, iPhone from Google Play store and Apple App store, respectively.
STEP 2: Once the app is install on your smartphone, set up the app. The process is very easy, just add your number, enter OTP and name and other details.
STEP 3: Next, you will need to select the action menu by clicking on the three vertical dots on the top right corner. And select ‘New group’ option.
STEP 4: Next, you will need to add a contact to be able to set up a group.
STEP 5: You will need to select the contact and then tap on the arrow to continue.
STEP 6: Name the group and click on ‘Create’.
STEP 7: Within the group window click on the three vertical dots on the top right corner.
STEP 8: Next, click on ‘Group settings’ option and tap on ‘Group link’ and turn on.
STEP 9: – Then tap on ‘Share’ to get a shareable link for the group.
STPE 10: You can then simply copy the link and share it with WhatsApp contacts in the group.
This will allow your WhatsApp group members to move to your newly created Signal group. Once all your members are moved to your Signal group, you can turn off the link you’ve enabled. This will help avoid allowing any strangers from joining your group.
That’s it! You can now use your WhatsApp groups on Signal from your phone and computer simultaneously.
