Since it’s debut on iOS in 2013, Telegram has quickly become the go-to messaging app for people who are concerned about their privacy. From their own website, they claim to now boast 100,000,000 Monthly Active Users
When we first learned of Telegram and it’s success we were dumbfounded. Why would so many people move to an obscure, security-centric messaging app? We thought that everybody was OK with government agencies watching our every move. After all, after a brief shrug of the shoulders, the NSA scandal seemed all but forgotten; current affairs and the political scene have TRUMPED our privacy concerns.
Forgive us if it this seems like a stretch, but is there a chance that at least some of Telegram’s success is due to cheaters wanting to stay hidden, or teens trying to evade the scrutiny of their parents?
In the absence of any contrary theory, that’s the stance we’ve adopted.
So as soon as we learned of Telegram’s success, we knew it was something our customers would want us to capture, infact many of you did ask for it, and now it’s arrived.
