Telegram is a cross-platform instant messaging application whose exchanges are linked to the user's account. In other words, a discussion carried out on a smartphone can continue on a computer since the messages are synchronized. The main advantage of this service is to see its conversations encrypted from end to end, this providing significant security for confidential exchanges but above all for the protection of personal data.
Telegram is a tool of choice, we also talk about it in our comparison of the best free instant messaging applications.
What are the latest from Telegram?
In October 2021, Telegram officially crosses the milestone of one billion downloads. This follows the Facebook group outage that occurred a few days prior. This had decommissioned all communication systems hosted by the company of Mark Zuckerberg Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp.
It's quite an embarrassing event for Telegram: the in-person messaging system offered a computer security researcher a $1,000 bounty in exchange for his silence about the discovery of a flaw. The latter concerned the message self-destruction system in versions 7.5.0 to 7.8.0. The feature in question allowed images swapped in the app to be deleted. Only, the photos disappeared from a visual point of view but remained present in the cache of the smartphone. After drawing Telegram's attention to the non-disclosure of details without the company's written agreement, the researcher has heard nothing more about it or the bounty in question.
In September 2021, the Financial Times unveiled the results of an investigation: Telegram would be a benchmark for cybercriminals. The conditions there are thus ideal for hackers, in particular because of the encryption of the discussions. This growing phenomenon can be explained by the recent change in privacy that WhatsApp has undergone. Among the illegal activities carried out discreetly on messaging, we find for example the sale of data obtained by theft. Less monitored by law enforcement, Telegram is becoming a stand-alone replacement for the Darknet in some areas, due to its ease of use.
Telegram blew its 8th candle on August 14, 2021. For the occasion, the 8.0 update was also deployed. While last month, the service lifted its limit on concurrent users who can take part in a group video call, it is now the turn of live broadcasts to lose this limitation. Telegram is getting new, more advanced features for file transfer. It is now possible to forward a message or media from another conversation by hiding the name and caption of the original content.
In June 2021, researchers report the proliferation of bots on the messaging network. The latter seek to seize the one-time passwords usually allowing to connect using two-factor authentication. These bots would be very on the lookout for data present on the smartphone, in particular those concerning PayPal, Apple Pay or Google Pay. The operating protocol consists of using the phishing method by passing the user through very realistic steps and pages in order to trick him.
On which platform is Telegram available?
Telegram wants to be accessible to as many people as possible and is therefore multiplatform. It is found on the two main players in the mobile market, on the App Store for iOS devices and on the Play Store for Android.
