How to create a Telegram account using temporary numbers
It’s not a surprise for anyone that in today’s world it’s very important to have some way of long-distance communication. With the pandemic, keeping in touch has been harder and more important than ever. Luckily, technology is on your side. A lot of social media platforms and applications are available today, allowing you to connect with loved ones, friends, and family with just an internet connection.
The holy grail of day-to-day long-distance communication is instant messaging apps. Platforms like WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, Signal, Skype, Viber, and many others are used to contact users through the internet. Most of these apps also include some additional features like statuses, games, and audio and video calls.
If you’re looking for a messaging app, you can’t go wrong with Telegram. Boasting 500 million users, this giant shapes up to be one of the biggest competitors in the instant messaging market. Telegram has its focus on privacy, offering end-to-end encryption for both voice and video calls. And for those who like to be more low-radar, it has a secret chat feature. Telegram also offers a lot of additional tools. It allows groups of up to 200,000 people, has auto-delete messages, a channel feature, and much more to keep its audience engaged.
Telegram, by default, is a cloud-based platform. This means that all messages and information (except for the secret chats) shared in groups or chats is encrypted between the app and the server, and can only be accessed from any of the user’s devices.
To have all of these features in the palm of your hand, you’ll need a phone number. This number is going to be used in the registration process and needs to be verified by SMS. To receive messages from other people, they’ll also need your phone number.
On the other hand, Telegram allows users to create usernames. This way, other users that have your username can send and receive messages from you, in such a way that they neither need your phone number nor do they see it.
This feature is very important for those who don’t like to give away their phone as free candy and want to maintain their privacy when on the app. But, how to create a Telegram account without using your real number? You do need to use a phone number to verify your identity. Fortunately, there is a perfect solution to this: temporary virtual numbers. In this guide, you’ll learn how to use them to create your Telegram account.
Although Telegram is available for the web, this guide will focus on the mobile app. Another thing to keep in mind is that this process is only for US citizens. If you happen to live in another place, you can use a residential IP to create your account as if you were in the United States.
