Free and fast messaging app

Telegram is a free chat and instant messaging app that brings people - from various platforms - together. This mobile social and communication application guarantees that your chats, files, and links are kept secure by their strict security standards; however, anyone that uses the app can upload their own creations—specifically, sticker packs — to the application. The program's upload speed is also incredibly fast - especially considering that it can send large files in chat conversations.

What is Telegram used for?

Telegram is a messaging app that offers fast cross-platform synchronization. Although key functions are the same as other chat applications like WhatsApp and Messenger, this program uses end-to-end encryption for improved privacy controls. It helps you to create community chats, transfer files, stickers, and contacts for people around the world.

It delivers secure chat services through its cloud-based distribution architecture; it does not track messages or calls. The app lets you set up secret chats with self-destruct timers to keep your messages completely hidden and private. Secret conversations are the most valuable functions of Telegram. Unfortunately, there is one downside to the use of this feature.

Transferred photos and hidden chat logs are not backed up by the app. A "secretly" shared image allows you to store each image separately. You should set up a "self-destruct" mode to prevent the media and texts from showing. You can also use the "unsend" function, which ensures that you can remove a message or media file within 48 hours of sending it.

Is Telegram a safe app?

The Telegram app generates a special message ID for your mobile number to quickly sync up your list of contacts. As such, you can easily locate friends on the app and communicate with them to start conversations. In addition, this program considers your contact information to be confidential, ensuring that it stays outside the reach of marketers and spam.

Safety has always been the key point of distinction for this program. Messages are encrypted in the Telegram cloud; if you create a group on the app, other users will not be allowed to see your phone number. Compared to other chat applications, this one is super fast. You can send a big batch of images right away while audio and video are very easy to import and upload.

Notice that this app is also an open-source platform. This helps people to make their own stickers and share them with other users. Stickers can be any photo or icon you choose, and they can fit the emoticon or emoji you want. You don't need to be buddies with the creator to save the stickers. Tap the sticker that you want on your chat, and this app will save the whole sticker pack for you.

Fastest and safest messenger app

Telegram is a good alternative to Messenger and similar chat applications. Although the user interface is simple, the app keeps your messages private and encrypted — allowing you to exchange confidential details without security concerns. With bots, stickers, and a lot of other features, you'll find this app fun, interactive, and easy to use. It's a highly recommended app.

    Brilliant ! Better than Whatsapp in every way !.
    Its vastly superior to Whatsapp. Why anyone would not give it 5 starts is odd, almost subterfuge. Its only weakness is recorded video transmission, it is yet to offer the possibility of compressi More
