Signal said that it was experiencing “technical difficulties” as it worked to accommodate millions of new users. Some users reported messages failing to send on both the mobile and desktop apps for several hours.

“Millions upon millions of new users are sending a message that privacy matters”, it said in a tweet.

The company has seen a huge surge in interest since its rival WhatsApp unveiled new privacy terms last week. It had said that it had added servers “at a record pace” and was working to restore service.

Both Signal and Telegram have benefited from discontent sparked by WhatsApp's updated terms and conditions.

WhatsApp told its users that they must allow it to share data with its parent company Facebook if they wished to continue using it. This does not apply to users in the UK and Europe - but the notification was sent to everyone.
