Do you want to join a Telegram channel, but it’s blocked or banned?
This is simple to solve – go to Telegram Settings – Privacy and Security – Disable Filtering.
A Telegram channel may be blocked because they share adult content.
By default, your Telegram account blocks this type of content. So, you can’t join these channels.
Disabling this filter is easy and simple, though. This article will teach you how to do that.
Read below to learn how!
How to Disable Filters for Blocked Channels on Telegram
If you don’t have the Telegram app on Windows, you need to download it first.
Use Google to search for the Telegram app and go to the first website in the search results.
In the Apps section, select Windows 10, and then click on “Get Telegram for Windows x64”.
To use Telegram on your computer, you need to scan a QR code with your phone.
After you scan it, the main Telegram app screen will appear on your monitor.
Follow the steps below to disable filtering:
- Press on the Settings icon
To go to Settings, you need to click on the Hamburger icon. It’s in the top-left corner of the screen.
- Click on Settings
This step is self-explanatory. Click on Settings!
- Click on Privacy and Security
The option to disable filtering is in the “Privacy and Security” menu.
It’s under Notifications and above Data and Storage.
Click on it!
- Disable Filtering
You need the option at the bottom, under the “Sensitive Content” menu.
You’ll need to check the box to disable filtering. It’s a bit counterintuitive to check the box but read the content.
The box says “Disable filtering”, so you’ll need to check it to disable filtering.
That’s it! Now you’re able to join blocked or banned Telegram channels.
You need to restart the app after disabling filtering to join a blocked Telegram channel on your phone.
Now, there should be no problem!
Telegram is a messaging and social media platform restricting access to channels that post adult content.
This is true both on PC and mobile phones. You’ll have to disable filtering if you want to join one of these groups.
To do it, download Telegram Messenger on your PC, and go to Settings – Privacy and Security – Disable Filtering.
Check the box saying “Disable Filtering,” and you’re done.
Force-close the Telegram mobile app to save the changes. After you restart the app, you can join these blocked groups.
