An overview of the +

★A preliminary understanding of what Telegram is?

Telegram is a messaging app focused on speed and security, it's super fast, simple, and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time - your messages sync seamlessly across any number of phones, tablets or computers. With Telegram, you can send any type of messages, photos, videos and files (documents, zips, mp3s, etc.), as well as create groups for up to 100,000 people or channels to broadcast to unlimited audiences. You can write your phone contacts and find people by username. So Telegram is like SMS and email combined - for all your personal or business messaging needs. In addition to this, we also support end-to-end encrypted voice calls.

★Who does Telegram belong to?

Telegram is for everyone who wants fast and reliable messages and calls. Business users and small teams may appreciate large groups, usernames, desktop apps, and powerful file sharing options. Since Telegram groups can have up to 100,000 members, we support replies, mentions, and hashtags, which help maintain order and keep communication efficient for large communities. You can use advanced tools to designate administrators to help these communities thrive in peace. Public groups can be joined by anyone and are a powerful platform for discussion and feedback.

If you prefer pictures, Telegram has animated gif search, a state-of-the-art photo editor and an open sticker platform (find some cool stickers here or here) . What's more, you don't need to worry about disk space on your device. With Telegram's cloud support and cache management options, Telegram can take up almost zero space on your phone. Those looking for extra privacy should check out our advanced settings, not revolutionary policies. If you want to keep it private, you can try our device-specific secret chat and use self-destructing messages, photos and videos - and lock your app with an extra passcode.

★What is the difference between Telegram and WhatsApp?

Unlike WhatsApp, Telegram is a cloud-based messenger with seamless synchronization. So you can access your messages from multiple devices at the same time, including tablets and computers, and share an unlimited number of photos, videos and files (doc, zip, mp3, etc.) up to 1.5 GB each. If you don't want to store all your data on your device, you can always save it in the cloud. Telegram is faster and more secure thanks to our multi-data center infrastructure and encryption. Best of all, Telegram is free and will be free - no ads, no subscription fees, ever. Our API is open and we welcome developers to create their own Telegram apps. We also have a Bot API, a developer platform that allows anyone to easily build specialized tools for Telegram, integrate any service, and even accept payments from users around the world. This is just the tip of the iceberg. Don't forget to check out this paragraph for something more unique.

★How old is Telegram?

★How do I set up 2-step verification? Why set it up? What to do if you forget it?

Settings: For the security of your account, please set a 2-step verification password in time.

How to set it up: Settings -> Privacy & Security -> 2-Step Verification.

This password will only be asked for new logins to Telegram and will not cause any trouble, otherwise your account will be at great risk of being compromised.

Function: For security reasons, it is recommended that you set a two-step verification password. The last step of the setting is to add a secure mailbox, which is used in the case of forgetting two-step verification. Below, you can reset your password through your secure email address. It is recommended that you use a personal mailbox with high security, such as Gmail or Outlook for personal use.

Forgotten: If you did not add a secure email address when you set up your 2-step verification password, and then forgot your password, you can only try to remember your password or reset your account (the effect is equivalent to canceling the account).

★Why is the message unsuccessful and there is a red exclamation mark in the lower right corner of the message?

This prompt appears because someone you have privately chatted with has been reported as harassing, or has sent too many unwelcome messages in a group and was Delete or report, and finally Telegram officially restricts your ability to send messages, which will make you unable to send messages in any group, nor can you take the initiative to privately chat with others.

Of course, you can privately chat with @SpamBot to check the expiration date of the ban. After unblocking, if you send harassing messages again, the ban time will increase, which will eventually lead to your account being banned. Permanent ban, cannot be lifted.

Please note, according to Telegram official: No matter what type of message you send (text, image, invitation link, etc.), as long as the recipient reports it as " harassing message", then it will be defined as "harassing message", so before sending a message, please make sure that your message will not make others feel "harassed".

Private Group/Channel does not have a custom ID, you can only join by clicking the invite link or being invited to the group.

In a private group, the group owner can set the visibility of historical messages: If set to Visible, new members after joining can see the group's historical messages ; If it is set to be invisible (Hidden), the new members after joining cannot view the group history messages, only the messages after joining. For people who have not joined the group, they cannot view the group's messages.
