Signal, the private messenger app has a PIN security feature helping you secure your Signal messages and account, but Signal always reminds you to type the PIN over and over again. Here’s how to turn off Signal PIN reminder, as fast as possible.

When you first signed up for Signal messenger, you most likely made a PIN to prevent others from opening your app. Signal then repeatedly asks for a PIN every some minutes or hour until Signal thinks you remember your PIN.

While this can be a great solution for users who always forget their PIN number, this repetitive PIN reminder can be annoying for users who actually remember their PIN number.

Other than waiting for Signal to think that you remember your PIN, you can simply just turn off this PIN reminder feature so there would not be any more of it in the future.
