Do you have reasons to believe your partner is using Telegram to cheat on you? Or are you just curious about the infamous reputation of Telegram?
This article will discuss why Telegram might be the greatest cheating app ever. But remember, Telegram doesn’t encourage cheating.
It’s just a communication app like WhatsApp. Keep reading to see why Telegram is great for cheating!
1. Archived Chats
Telegram has an “Archived chats” feature that lets you hide active chats away from prying eyes.
WhatsApp has this feature, too, so don’t think that Telegram is the only app with this feature.
You won’t receive notifications when you archive a chat until you unarchive it again. This feature is useful when your partner is looking through your phone.
Archiving secret chats on Telegram may work to deceive them, but the “Archived Chats” category is also visible.
If you see this option on your partner’s phone, open it and see what chats they are hiding. Maybe you’ll find your partner’s paramour here!
2. Secret Chats
Another feature that facilitates cheating on Telegram is the “Secret Chats” feature. When you create a secret chat with someone, you get the following benefits:
- End-to-end encryption on the chat history
- No traces are left on the Telegram servers
- All messages have customizable self-destruct timers
- Messages don’t allow forwarding
- Impossible to take a screenshot of the chat
Secret chats are self-explanatory – they allow for secrecy when talking to someone. The messages will self-destruct in a specified period, and no one will be able to read them.
I couldn’t attach a picture of the secret chat because no screenshots are allowed.
3. Silent Messages
You can mute a chat or a group, so you don’t receive notifications from it. Your phone won’t beep or make audible noises, so no one will know who you’re talking to.
Once you select “Mute” in the top-right corner of the chat (after you tap the three-dot icon), you should see the following menu.
You can select how to mute the other person. You can mute their message sounds or customize the feature further.
Tap on “Mute Forever” to mute the other person indefinitely.
Combined with the “Archived Chats” or “Secret Chats” functions, you get a pretty secure communication method with someone else.
If your partner is cheating, Telegram makes it easy to continue doing it. Depending on your needs, you can mute any chat indefinitely or for a set period.
For cheating purposes, most people will mute a chat indefinitely and leave it like that. Whenever they want to talk to their lover, they just open the chat and see what’s what.
4. Change Name
On Telegram, you can change the other person’s name to whatever you want. The app doesn’t impose a certain name.
As long as you change that person’s name on your phone, the name will also be changed on Telegram.
That’s because Telegram contacts rely on the contacts in your phone’s Contacts list. Your partner won’t suspect a thing if you receive messages from someone named “Josh” or something like that.
Once you change the other person’s name in your Contacts, talking to them on Telegram will become much easier.
To summarize, Telegram can be used for cheating because it has more privacy-focused features such as:
- Archived chats
- Secret chats
- Muting capabilities
- Name-changing capabilities
- Disappearing messages
- No forwarding messages on secret chats
