Telegram


Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security. It’s super-fast, simple, secure and free.

Telegram seamlessly syncs across all of your devices and can be used on desktops, tablets and phones alike. You can send an unlimited amount of messages, photos, videos and files of any type (.doc, .zip, .pdf, etc.). Telegram groups have up to 200 people and you can send broadcasts to up to 100 contacts at a time. Be sure to check our website for a list of Telegram apps for all platforms.

We built Telegram to make messaging speedy and safe again, without the usual caveats.

Why Switch to Telegram?

FAST: Telegram is the fastest messaging app on the market because it uses a distributed infrastructure with data centers positioned around the globe to connect users to the closest possible server.

SECURE: We made it our mission to provide the best security among mass messengers. Telegram heavily encrypts all your data with time-tested algorithms.

CLOUD STORAGE: Telegram seamlessly syncs across all your devices, so you can always securely access your data. Your message history is stored for free in the Telegram cloud. Never lose your data again!

GROUP CHAT & SHARING: With Telegram, you can form large group chats of up to 200 members, send broadcasts to up to 100 contacts at a time, quickly share large videos, documents (.doc, .ppt, .zip, etc.), and send an unlimited amount of photos to your friends.

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.

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

PRIVACY: 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.

SUPPORT: For real-time support, please go to Settings in Telegram and select “Ask a Question” to send a message directly to our support volunteers. You can also email us at [email protected]

User reviews of Telegram
The one and only messenger one needs: 1. opensource (everyone can check and even modify it) 2. non-commercial software 3. free forever and no ads (cause non-commercial software) 4. real end-to-end encryption (secret chat) 5. PC version (from some third party developer) 6. browser version (from some third party developer) 7. real customer support (+42449) One thing I am badly missing: INVISIBLE mode. No way to hide "last seen" time. Anyway, I am happy to leave WhatsCrap and I seriously don't care if some of my friends are still using WA only... I don't give up my privacy because of some people...

11042014 Downloaded as someone mentioned its a bit like whatsapp. Indeed certain functions and layout feels whatsapp like.Only problem is - I have zero friends using it. Might be an alternative for the future but right now?. Not for me....
