But this time it’s different « . « People
you no longer want to trade your privacy for free services. They no longer want to be hostage to technology monopolies that seem to think that they can get away with it as long as their applications have a critical mass of users, « writes the document. In that sense, Dúrov considered that » with 500 million active users and a Accelerated growth,
Telegram became the largest shelter for those looking for a communication platform committed to privacy and security. We take this responsibility very seriously.
We won’t let you down. « 

« Those of you who have used Telegram for the past few years know that we have been consistent both when
it is about defending private data as to improve our applications, « said the businessman.
