Why it is a good idea to use Telegram
Telegram is a globally accessible freemium, cross-platform, cloud-based instant messaging (IM) service. The service also provides optional end-to-end encrypted chats and video calling, VoIP, file sharing, and several other features. It was launched for iOS on 14 August 2013 and Android on 20 October 2013. The servers of Telegram are distributed worldwide with five data centers in different regions, while the operations center is based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Various client apps are available for desktop and mobile platforms including official apps for Android, iOS, Windows, macOS, and Linux (although registration requires an iOS or Android device and a working phone number). There are also two official Telegram web twin apps, WebK and WebZ, and numerous unofficial clients that make use of Telegram’s protocol. All of the Telegram’s official components are open source, with the exception of the server which is closed-sourced and proprietary.
All that makes us believe in safety while we are using Telegram. That’s why people share their own data with the app without any complaints. But do we have to store there our personal data? No! I will tell you how to avoid it.
How to use Telegram accounts without storing personal data
Your data will be under control if you won’t store it anywhere. Let’s find out what types of data you have:
- Name and surname
- E-mail address
- Address of living
- Job title and company name
- Bank accounts
- Phone number
If we know how to protect the first five types of data, it is good. But the main problem is with the phone number. Telegram requires it to send OTP while you are signing up for that. So, you may think you have to use your own SIM card. But people know it is a problem: you will receive spam messages, your contacts will know you are in Telegram, and so on.
But what if I know a way to prevent this kind of violence in your personal data? The way is to use fake or virtual phone numbers.
What is the fake phone number?
The fake phone number or the virtual phone number — is a number without an owner. There is no person who owns it, so it can be shared between users. Fake phone numbers allow you to receive SMS, make calls, send SMS, and so on. Basically, it is a phone number without a SIM.
