Step 1: Create a Signal Group
To create a Signal group, open the Signal app, tap on the “pencil” icon in the top right corner, and select “New Group.” Choose the group name and add group members. Once the group is created, you can proceed to create a group link.
Step 2: Open Group Settings
Once the group is created, open the group settings by tapping on the group name, then on the three dots in the top right corner, and select “Group Settings.”
Step 3: Create Group Link
In the group settings, scroll down to the “Group Link” section and toggle on the “Group Link” option. You can also set the link to expire after a certain period by selecting “Expire After” and choosing the duration. Once the link is created, you can share it with others.
To share the group link, tap on “Share” and select the platform you want to share the link on, such as WhatsApp, email, or copy the link and share it manually. People who receive the link can simply click on it to join the Signal group.
Step 5: Manage Group Link
You can manage the group link by going back to the group settings and toggling off the “Group Link” option to disable the link. You can also regenerate the link by selecting “Regenerate” if you suspect the link has been compromised.
