The renowned messaging app, Telegram, enables new users to open accounts without requiring a mobile phone number. The new feature allows users to log in using Blockchain-based numbers that can be purchased with cryptocurrency on the fragment platform. Telegram is one of the most popular messaging service applications in the Global crypto community. The application has received a new update that allows users to create an account without linking a phone number. According to Telegram, it is a new gateway for users who prioritize security and privacy over everything.
In an announcement, Telegram said,”Today starts a new era of privacy. You can have a Telegram account without a SIM card.” The company also said,”On Telegram, your phone number was never visible to strangers. our users control who can see their number and whether others are allowed to find them by their phone number.”
In a statement released by the Telegram team on Tuesday, they said from now on; there will not be a requirement for a number to set up a new account with the messaging application. It will be a seamless process where users can log in using Blockchain-powered numbers to enhance anonymity across the platform.
In addition to that, the “Temporary QR code’ update will allow users to use a temporarily generated QR code as a medium to connect with people around them without requiring a number. The platform said, “iOS users can use emoji search like Android users to find the perfect emoji including those from custom packs.”
A user can buy any available numbers from the blockchain-powered number platform, Fragment, which features TON cryptocurrency (toncoin). Fragment also offers usernames via a Blockchain-based auction platform. With this new update, Telegram has considerably upgraded the user’s privacy and security. Now, it allows you to set up a timer that automatically deletes messages in all new chats. The timer facilities are also available for existing chats.
