Step 1 – Get Telegram
I’m getting too many alerts. Can I silence it?
Yes! Each version of Telegram is slightly different, but each has an option to Disable Notifications.
What is Telegram?
A program that lets you do voice calls, video calls, conferences, chats, and group chats. It’s very feature rich and is a worldwide favorite.
Is it safe?
Telegram is considerably safer than WhatsApp, iMessage, Facebook chat, etc.
Telegram vs. Signal
Signal is the most secure. Telegram can be as secure but you have to enable “secure chat”, which is not enabled by default. However, Telegram is often used in combination with Signal because Telegram makes some things easier.
Unless you’re planning on going up against the NSA, consider Telegram to be equal to Signal under normal circumstances.
