Signal is one of the most popular privacy-focused instant messaging apps in the world, and like most of its peers, it also offers a comprehensive dark mode. The dark mode in Signal changes the stark white background to jet-black and reduces the strain on a user's eyes, especially useful in low-light situations. It is available on both Android and iOS.

Signal Messenger is a private messaging app that comes with end-to-end encryption powered by the open-source Signal protocol. The app is offered by Signal Foundation, which is an independent 501c3 nonprofit organization. In terms of functionality, Signal also offers HD voice and video calls, making it a full-function, modern, messaging app.

Dark mode has become increasingly popular over the past few years, both on mobile and desktop. These days, the feature is offered not only by most apps but also all major operating systems. System-wide dark mode has become a must-have feature in all popular operating systems, including Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and popular Linux distros like Ubuntu. As for Signal Messenger, it offers the feature natively, enabling users to switch it on with or without OS-level support.
