Telegram is open source so that all of its programs can be verified by security experts, as a result of this, most of your chats aren’t end-to-end encrypted by default.

Although telegram security is enough to protect you from your ISPs, Wi-Fi router interception, and other third parties but Telegram can be able to view your data if they want to.

However, if you want a full encrypted chat on telegram then you’ll have to switch to its secret chat mode.

This secret chat mode has been active for a while and it provides features such as:

  •  End-to-end Encryption
  •  Leaves no trace on their servers
  •  Self destruct timer
  •  Do not allow forwarding of messages.
  •  Notifies users when you take a screenshot (iPhone), Screenshots are not allowed (Android)
  •  Deletes message for all when you delete any message

  1. The secret chat feature only works for one-on-one chats and not for group chats, which implies that all chats can only be seen by you and the recipient due to the end-to-end encryption being enabled.
  2. Secondly, secret chats are only available on the device you initiated the chat with, logging into another device will make you lose the chat on the secret space.
  3. Lastly, once you delete the chat on your device; you can’t get access to it elsewhere as the conversation will vanish for good.
