I would not trust Signal unless you deploy your own server; they use Google most of the time, like for download and or api/key rotation, are in US jurisdiction etc

You actually cannot deploy your own server, youd have to fork the code and make a whole different service. It's pretty suspicious

Google can be disabled entirely tho, by installing on a device without active play services. For example, android x86 with play services ripped out
