Telegram overview

Telegram (was Messenger for Telegram) is a messaging app with a focus on speed. It's fast, simple and free.

With Telegram, you can create group chats with up to 200 people so you can stay connected with everyone at once. Plus, you can share videos up to 1GB, send multiple photos from the web, and forward any media you receive in an instant. All your messages are in the cloud, so you can easily access them from any of your devices.

The developers built Telegram to make messaging safe again so you can take back your right to privacy.

If you need an iOS version, you can download it here.

Stop being paranoid! Nobody wants pictures of your cats. Nobody reads you - if you do not violate the laws of the country in which you live. Choose the application that you like best, and don't fu** yourself and others' brains. I choose Telegram.

Proprietary crypto - do not use. You can use xmpp, matrix or Signal instead. All of which are open source and xmpp and matrix are decentralized.

Avoid. Russian spyware. If you do a search on what which ip's it uses, you can also block it with your personal firewall. In this day and age, you'd be out of your mind to use anything designed in Iran, China or the Russian Federation, etc.

Telegram web allows me to use the spellchecker and even Grammarly, which the desktop PROGRAM (use 'app' when you're talking with your little sister!) doesn't. I hope that soon an upgrade will include this option, THANKS :-)

When I download Telegram on editor site, it cames in a dmg. When I download it here it cames in a zip file. Why ? Has MacUpdate modify the app another time to add some crapware ? That's suspect !

Very conflicted about this app. It works well, it's multiplatform and the themes are cool. BUT. There seem to be privacy issues. I read that Telegram recently evesdropped on protesters and helped the Iranian regime. Is that right?
