This article explains how to change the “Notification content” settings in the Signal app on Windows 11.

Signal is a cross-platform popular messaging app. It allows users to send and receive encrypted messages, make voice and video calls, and share files from their devices, including computers.

When you install and set up the Signal Desktop app, you can choose to have it open automatically when you log in to your computer. The app also allows you to turn on or off call relay through Signals’ servers to avoid revealing your IP address, turn disappearing messages on or off, and more.

By default, the Signal app will display the name, content, and action on the notification banner in Windows. You can change the notification content setting to display none to keep information private.

Changing the notification content settings in the Signal app can be useful if you want to keep your messages private. You can choose not to display content details on the notification banner so no one can see your screen and read your messages.

This is especially useful if you work in a public place or share your computer with others.
