Telegram is a top-rated encrypted messaging app, with no ads and cross-platform cloud-based distributed messaging.
It is similar to Apple's Messengers, but it's reliable and has dedicated apps for all platforms — PC and Mac, Linux, Android, and iOS. You can also set up secret chats with messages which can self-destruct, giving your privacy a whole new level.
How to Install Telegram–
Telegram installation and use are simple. You can also install telegram through different online websites such as https://toptelegramchannels.com/.
This is a step-by-step guide.
1. Telegram App Download
- iPhone and iPad
- Linux 64-bit; Linux 32-bit
- macOS; Mac App Store Version
- Chrome browser extension
The web version is also available.
2. Register your number
Telegram will immediately send an SMS text message to your phone containing a code that allows you to verify your number. Telegram will contact your phone if you fail to enter the verification code in three minutes.
3. Enter the SMS verification code
You will find a field in the Telegram app where you can enter your SMS verification code.
4. Telegram could call your phone instead
The app will then ask you to enter a five-digit code that a robotic voice will readout.
5. Enter at least your first name
Telegram requires you to give it at most your first name. It doesn't necessarily have to be your actual first name. For more personalization, you can add an avatar. Searches for you can be made by other users using your username, without you needing your phone number.
6. Telegram can access your contacts
You can't simply type in a number to start messaging. Before you can send messages to anyone, Telegram will need permission to access your contacts. Telegram chats can be accessed by people outside your contact list.
