In fact, Signal’s popularity boosted by Elon Musk’s simple tweet, ‘Use Singal’. The app has since been one of the top apps on the charts.
To much surprise, it has recently been brought to light that the entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of Facebook and owner of Whatsapp, Mark Zuckerberg is on Signal himself.
How did people find out that the entrepreneur was a fan? It happened by accident of course.

Mark Zuckerberg was among the 533 million Facebook users from 106 countries whose personal information was reportedly leaked by hackers on April 3. Among the stolen personal data published on a hacker forum on Saturday were Zuckerberg’s phone number, location, name, date of birth, marriage information, and Facebook user ID.
Cyber researcher Dave Walker confirmed that Facebook co-founders Chris Hughes and Dustin Moskovitz’s personal details were also leaked with the data. On April 4, Walker tweeted, “Regarding the #FacebookLeak, of the 533M people in the leak – the irony is that Mark Zuckerberg is regrettably included in the leak as well.”
In another turn of events, Mark Zuckerberg also respects his own privacy, by using a chat app that has end-to-end encryption and isn't owned by @facebook
This is the number associated with his account from the recent facebook leak. https://t.co/AXbXrF4ZxE

Dave went on to inform that the entrepreneur was in fact on Signal himself. Signal was quick to respond on the matter and decided to taunt their rival in a healthy way.
