Currently, hundreds of secure messaging apps are available for Android smartphones. However, out of all, Signal seems to be the fastest. Also, compared to other instant messaging apps, Signal offers you more privacy features.

If you have been using Signal for a while, you might know that the app offers a disappearing message feature. The disappearing message automatically deletes the message for both the sender and receiver after a pre-defined time.

Recently, the company rolled out another interesting feature that lets you initiate every new conversation with a Disappearing message time. Before this, users must manually turn on the Disappearing message for every chat.
