How to completely disable pop up notifications on the Telegram messenger
When it comes to messaging apps, one of the major requirements these days, is encrypted conversations. After the rather shocking and rather embarrassing data leak that facebook suffered a few years back, users have become a lot more concerned and aware about the importance of privacy online, which has, in turn, led to popular messaging apps introducing end to end encryption in order to retain their user base.
Popular apps like Whatsapp and Signal have now taken a steep lead in the online messaging app race, but one of the rather underdog apps out there is Telegram. Yes, this app has been in the market for a while now, but its popularity has only just started to soar. Telegram does offer a level of security and protection to its users. However, while end-to-end encryption is offered by default for every chat on WhatsApp and Signal, it is only provided for secret chats on Telegram. Telegram’s secret chat option can also only be held between two people and group chats are excluded.
Telegram messenger is a cloud-based instant messaging app available for iOS, Android, and PC. The platform sees billions of messages going to and fro with some messages even being saved as drafts on the cloud server. This is great for the platform, but the problem starts when we start receiving hundreds of notifications on our devices.
Telegram allows users to easily connect with their friends, family, and colleagues, while channels allow subscribers to stay in touch with topics that they like or care about. But with more connections, come notifications and this can get very annoying when we are at work and start receiving multiple notifications on our device.
