Did I just download and install malware? Top results for Signal are from this 'Loadcenter' website.

Recommended and mentioned products

  1. Fast, simple & secure messaging. Privacy that fits in your pocket.

    It has the same SHA1 as the .exe downloaded from signal.org, so the files are identical. Have no idea why someone would mirror the site, though.
  2. The official ICANN WHOIS search for domain lookups.

    Domain Registrar: Icann (https://lookup.icann.org/), much like other WHOIS resources, will list a domains registrar after searching it which often lists an abuse contact at that registrar. In the case of loadcenter-signal.digital the abuse contact listed under 'Registrar Information' was: [email protected] . I sent an email to that email noting the domains and that they were potentially phishing/malware domains.
  3. The Internet privacy company that empowers you to seamlessly take control of your personal information online, without any tradeoffs.

    Honestly, even better advice is to use a search engine that doesn't get paid to put ads above your search results. Try duckduckgo.com.
  4. Pi-hole is a multi-platform, network-wide ad blocker.

  5. Block ads, trackers and malicious websites on all your devices.

  6. Fast and secure, ad and tracker blocking browser.
