Signal User Sending Stickers in Conversation

Just like WhatsApp, you can use sticker packs in Signal. The encrypted messaging app offers a couple of sticker packs to get you started. If those aren’t enough, you can download awesome third-party stickers and use them directly in Signal.

How to Use Signal’s Built-in Sticker Packs

Signal’s own sticker packs are enough to get you started. Like everything else in Signal, the stickers are also secured using end-to-end encryption. The steps are slightly different based on your device.

If you’re using Signal on your iPhone, first, open a conversation, then tap the sticker button from the text box.
