Due to recent changes to WhatsApp’s privacy policy, many users are switching to Signal. The reason for choosing this app is not a hidden secret. With encrypted chats, tons of features, and prioritizing user data, the app managed to gain a very loyal following. However, if this is your first time trying this service, you may have some questions. up your sleeve. Among them, questions about how to enable or disable link previews in Signal seem to be at the top of the list. As the name suggests, this feature shows a snippet of the URL that someone shared with you (or you shared with someone else). For example, if you share an article with feature activated, you will see the title, featured image and a brief description (or what is known as a meta description) of that post. This would give the user information about whether the link is worth their attention or not. On the other hand, if you have this feature disabled, the link will be displayed in its pure form, with just the plain text URL. There are some who don’t want to fill up your chat screen with all the details about a link and therefore want to leave this feature Disabled. Well, the app has taken note of both scenarios.

There are two different approaches you can take for this. The first method is to apply the configuration throughout the application. Doing so will turn Link Preview on or off for all users you interact with in Signal. The second method is a more restrictive approach, you can manually apply it to a specific sender.
