Telegram: Secret chat - that's there to know


Telegram is the most popular messenger after WhatsApp, as it scores above all for its security. WhatsApp is repeatedly in the press because of security gaps. If you are concerned and do not want Telegram to cache anything, it is best to use a secret chat.

How do you use a secret chat at Telegram?

You can very easily open a secret chat with Telegram.
  1. On iOS, open your chats by going to "Chats" at the bottom of the app. Tap the pen and paper icon in the upper right to create a nine chat.
  2. In the following overview you can now choose whether you want to publish a channel, a secret chat or a new group.
  3. Tap New Secret Chat and select the person you want to start a chat with.
  4. The other participant must first confirm the chat before the secret chat can take place.
  5. If you want to check the security of the chat, just compare your secret keys. To do this, tap on the profile picture of your chat partner in the chat and then on "Secret key". If the keys are the same, the chat is secured and you can start chatting.
  6. Another security function is the function to time-limit messages. Your messages can then only be read by your chat partner for a short time.
