The year 2019 for Telegram began exceptionally calm – hopefully it will remain until the end. However, we have not forgotten about the continuous introduction of interesting solutions that affect the convenience of using the application. After the implementation of new changes concerning group management, or the appearance of the communicator itself as a modification of the conversation screen, the creators decided to focus their attention on users’ safety by giving them additional tools to increase privacy while using the application.
The creators of the Telegram messenger have placed great emphasis on the privacy and security of its users since its inception. End-to-end encryption is supposed to ensure the security of sent messages, which last year was met with huge criticism of Russia, which wanted to block access to the messenger and remove it, among other things from the App Store. However, these efforts have been in vain, and the Telegram developers in the latest update give its users additional tools to improve their security and privacy.
Telegram 5.5 focuses on users’ privacy and gives them additional tools
One of the most important news in Telegram 5.5 is the possibility to clean private conversations on both sides. With a single button, we can delete all outgoing and incoming messages not only from the device we use, but also on the other side, which guarantees erasing all correspondence. Another important tool introduced to the new version of the application is an additional restriction when other messages are forwarded by other parties. Now, each user can define additional privacy options restricting the transfer of data on them (depending on the settings, these data can be passed on to all contacts or to anyone).
