Telegram is a cloud-based messaging service which hit the IOS and Android platforms 4years ago to compete with the leaders and contenders like WhatsApp, Facebook messenger. This application was developed by privately held company Telegram Messenger LLP which was founded by Pavel Durov, a Russian entrepreneur.
Telegram allows a user to send messages, share multimedia content like photos, videos, audio and also stickers and any type of file. As of the last survey, a telegram is said to have around 200 million active users and has an annual growth rate of more than 50%. The security model of this app was highly criticized by many developers because it misses the end – to – end encryption for messages which means they store all the contacts, media and messages of a user on their own server.
