Telegram comes with a strong promise: “taking back our right to privacy”
The messaging app is built around the concept of privacy and security. All messages sent through the app can easily be encrypted and have a self-destruct option, therefore promising to keep your messages safe from hackers or any third parties (NSA, do you hear?)

- Cloud-based – You can access and follow on your conversation from all your devices
- Fast & Powerful – The app promises to deliver your messages faster than any other app, and so without any limitation in size (media included)
