The monthly number of active users is around 60 million, reached in May of this year, there is therefore a notable increase in the level of user involvement.
The app creator has pointed out the following:
One interesting thing we noticed is that the people who installed Telegram last year as a backup application, during this year started using Telegram as their main messaging application. And that's why we see this huge increase in user activity
Telegram reinforces its commitment to the privacy of user data:
For more than two years of our existence, we have not disclosed a single byte of data to third parties - even governments. And it wasn't easy
