Telegram safe? Lets see15-08-2019
I love how Telegram works: fast, easy sends huge files. But what it takes from you? In return, app takes e v e r y t h i n g that you have - where are you now, data about loved ones, delves into your photos.
Who said it's safe? Why does the communicator need phones of friends?
In fact a secret connection is the name of my friend, which knows me and my friend, and encrypted wifi - thats all we need to talk safely.
