Messaging app Signal can be used without a mobile phone


The messaging app Signal, which bills itself as ultra-secure, can be used via just a landline if you don’t have a mobile phone, but do have a computer and some time.


This is one of those, ‘it’s possible, but you probably won’t want to’ situations. Nonetheless, some people do opt to go entirely without a mobile phone and that’s not a reason to stay out of touch with friends, necessarily.
