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 200,000 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.

Small tip

Hi, thank you creators for such a great app with a ton of useful features
I would love if you could fix unblocking with a touch ID. If I close an app and then turn it on again I should place my finger on my home button to pass touch ID, but if I accidentally hit home button again no longer I have an option to unlock an app with my Touch ID and when I'm driving it is very uncomfortable to type long password especially since you don't provide numbers-only keyboard.
If you add a fingerprint-button somewhere on a lockscreen of your app it would fix this thing and make overall user-experience much better
Thanks in advance

Non-intuitive interface is some cases

Dear telegram team, as you progress your great app, I see some places, that confuses people and worsen User Experience in general. I hope that you find my feedback useful and continue to bring amazing UX to people:

1. When I create a chat-bot and distribute across a group of 100+ people chat-bot starts with delays which might take up to 5-10 minutes, when many people are actively using it. Without any “loading” icon or “please wait” message it is really confusing as I cannot understand what is going on and what should be my next step on this screen.

2. When chat-bot is being referenced as a part of message in another chat-room (where chat-bot is not functioning) and I click on its reference link - instead of transferring me to the appropriate chat room, where chat-bot is able to respond I just repeat the same message in the current chat room. This confuses people as being non-intuitive and spams chat-rooms (where chat-bot is not functioning, but a link like /items-list is being referenced) with unnecessary messages.
