Pure instant messaging — simple, fast, secure, and synced across all your devices. Over 100 million active users in two and a half years.

FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market, connecting people via a unique, distributed network of data centers around the globe.

SYNCED: You can access your messages from all your devices at once. Start typing on your phone and finish the message from your tablet or laptop. Never lose your data again.

UNLIMITED: You can send media and files, without any limits on their type and size. Your entire chat history will require no disk space on your device, and will be securely stored in the Telegram cloud for as long as you need it.

SECURE: We made it our mission to provide the best security combined with ease of use. Everything on Telegram, including chats, groups, media, etc. is encrypted using a combination of 256-bit symmetric AES encryption, 2048-bit RSA encryption, and Diffie–Hellman secure key exchange.

POWERFUL: You can create group chats for up to 30,000 members, share large videos, documents of any type (.DOC, .MP3, .ZIP, etc.), and even set up bots for specific tasks. It's the perfect tool for hosting online communities and coordinating teamwork.

RELIABLE: Built to deliver your messages in the minimum bytes possible, Telegram is the most reliable messaging system ever made. It works even on the weakest mobile connections.

FUN: Telegram has powerful photo and video editing tools and an open sticker/GIF platform to cater to all your expressive needs.

SIMPLE: While providing an unprecedented array of features, we are taking great care to keep the interface clean. With its minimalist design, Telegram is lean and easy to use.

100% FREE & NO ADS: Telegram is free and will always be free. We are not going to sell ads or introduce subscription fees.

PRIVATE: We take your privacy seriously and will never give third parties access to your data.

For those interested in maximum privacy, Telegram offers Secret Chats. Secret Chat messages can be programmed to self-destruct automatically from both participating devices. This way you can send all types of disappearing content — messages, photos, videos, and even files. Secret Chats use end-to-end encryption to ensure that a message can only be read by its intended recipient.

We keep expanding the boundaries of what you can do with a messaging app. Don’t wait years for older messengers to catch up with Telegram — join the revolution today.

Hlo sir i don't have a question but i just want to advice that you shod make a hide feature in this other then the secret chat because if we want to do message him/her in secrete chat we have to wait them to get online otherwise we are not abel to do message or if we want to read the chat again then we are not able to read them in secrete chat we have to use simple chat but anyone can read that chat secrete chat is a very good feature but i think there is an hidden option also which is only unlock by pattern or passcode which is only known to user that where is the hide button or what is the password i also have a request that don't make the fingerprint lock because in my iphone 4 there is no fingerprint sensor thanks........ I hope u understand what i want to say if u now under stand then tell me i will explain you again as soon as possible and in much more detail

Need some improved features



There needs some additional features to improve usability.

In channels or group chats.., if there is any important message to keep, there is no way to mark it and read later. So providing markers to keep as a separate list so that user could access later would really help.....

Also similarly when a group or channel have several files posted within and user downloads a set of files, there is no separate section to check only downloaded files, one has to check complete list of all documents to identify downloaded items.....

And on downloading large files, if user switches app or the phone locks itself - then the download stops until the app is opened again, the downloading of file continues only once user go and touch the download icon again....

In a group.., if one wanted to filter all messages from a particular member.., there is no option to do it.....

Hoping I can get these features and fixes in next versions..., thanks

10+ reasons to use it and uninstall messenger


- bimonthly update cycle
- only when there are significant new features
- not like other spywares (Messenger and WhatsApp both owned by dirty privacy invader, i.e. Facebook) who update twice a week, just to spy on you better
- native ios app feel, unlike messenger
- smaller app size 1/3rd of messenger and WhatsApp

- faster than WhatsApp and messenger
- lighter and responsive experience. Even when Apple was slowing down older iPhones, telegram was working smoothly. While WhatsApp and messenger used to show lag, even in simple tasks like scrolling

- adult stickers packs available
- stickers are more aesthetic than other apps
- stickers packs are unlimited
- people use stickers coz it is mapped to emojis

- privacy is first priority in this app. Even in voice calls you can verify the emojis to know that its secure
- Only app which offers customisable UI
