The signal encryption app is actually a Chrome app that works like an extension in the browser. It is used in Chrome to link to any Smartphone in order to display all the incoming and outgoing messages in all connected devices. The description of the app in all the platforms boasts itself as an end-to-end encryption with features to embed encryption on a private group, video, image, and text message encrypted but it does not support encrypted email yet.
