Signal Private Messenger offers several features and has the best privacy and security measures in the segment. But like other popular messaging apps, Signal Private Messenger has also lacked some features, like auto-respond to messages. However, you can bring the automated reply feature in Signal, unofficially though.

If you recently switched to Signal, and want to send automated reply/ predefined responses to incoming messages, then the Auto-responder app will do it for you. You can create rules to respond to individual chat and group chat as per your interest.
