However, you get the option of secret chats on Telegram, which is encrypted end-to-end. No one but your sender and receiver can watch your secret chat. You cannot even watch secret chats on multiple systems at once.
3-Self Destructing Media – This feature of Telegram was earlier only for secret chats, but now it can also be used for regular chats. Through this feature, if you want to send a video or photo to someone with a timer, then select that image or video. Now crop below the photo or video, click on the icon of the stopwatch next to the edit option. Now you set the time, after which your media chat will disappear automatically.
4-to-step verification- You can also turn on two-step verification on Telegram for safety. With this, whenever you log on to a new system, you will need to enter a password other than OTP. For this, you will have to go to Settings and go to Privacy and Security. Two-step verification has to be clicked here.
5-Proxy Servers – You can also hide your IP address through this feature of Telegram. It acts like a VPN connection although internet speed is not affected in it. To setup a proxy server on Telegram, go to Settings and click on the proxy settings given in the data and storage.
