Some tech media reported that the Telegram Desktop app wasn’t secure because it “leaked IP addresses” when used to accept a voice call.

The reality is much less sensational – Telegram Desktop was at least as secure as other encrypted VoIP apps even before we improved it by adding an option to disable peer-to-peer calls. As for Telegram calls on mobile, they were always more secure than the competition, because they had this setting since day one.

During a peer-to-peer (P2P) call, voice traffic flows directly from one participant of a call to the other without relying on an intermediary server. P2P routing allows to achieve higher quality calls with lower latency, so the current industry standard is to have P2P switched on by default.

However, there’s a catch: by definition, both devices participating in a P2P call have to know the IP addresses of each other. So if you make or accept a call, the person on the other side may in theory learn your IP address.

That’s why, unlike WhatsApp or Viber, Telegram always gave its users the ability to switch off P2P calls and relay them through a Telegram server. Moreover, in most countries we switched off P2P by default.

Telegram Desktop, which is used in less than 0.01% of Telegram calls, was the only platform where this setting was missing. Thanks to a researcher who pointed that out, we made the Telegram Desktop experience consistent with the rest of our apps.

However, it is important to put this into perspective and realize that this is about one Telegram app (Telegram Desktop) being somewhat less secure than other Telegram apps (e.g. Telegram for iOS or Android). If you compare Telegram with other popular messaging services our there, unfortunately, they are not even close to our standards.

Using the terminology from the flashy headlines, WhatsApp, Viber and the rest have been “leaking your IP address” in 100% of calls. They are still doing this, and you can't opt out. The only way to stop this is to have all your friends switch to Telegram.

As you might have heard, for the last couple of years we’ve been quietly rebuilding Telegram for iOS from scratch with Swift – a programming language released by Apple as a faster alternative to Objective C.

The Swift version of Telegram looks exactly as the old one, but is faster, slicker and more battery-friendly than the good old Telegram (which was already great considering it outperformed other messaging apps in speed).

This new Telegram has been available for everyone to download under the name “Telegram X” since January. Thousands of users have been testing it and sharing their feedback with us, so thanks to them the app is now much more polished than a few months ago. While we are still putting some finishing touches on it, it seems that the new Telegram is ready to be shipped to every Telegram user on iOS.

That’s why within the next week or two we are planning to update the default Telegram iOS App with the Swift version. As a result, Telegram will become faster, slicker and more efficient. Since it will rely on an entirely new codebase, some minor bugs and glitches might occur, but we’ll make sure they are quickly – or should I say “swiftly” – fixed.

This change will make Telegram the most popular messaging app written fully in Swift. Some would say it’s a big risk, but I think somebody has to take such risks and be the first to implement new technologies, such as e2e encryption – or Swift.

To all our readers in Europe:

Tomorrow (5 July 2018), the European Parliament will vote on a new copyright directive. If approved, these changes threaten to disrupt the open Internet.

▶️ More info https://creativecommons.org/2018/06/20/european-parliaments-legal-affairs-committee-gives-green-light-to-harmful-link-tax-and-pervasive-platform-censorship/

The committee voted 13-12 in favor of Article 11, the provision known as the “link tax,” which grants an additional right to press publishers requiring anyone using snippets of journalistic content to first get a license or pay a fee to the publisher for its use online. Article 11 is ill-suited to address the challenges in supporting quality journalism, and it will further decrease competition and innovation in news delivery. Similar efforts have already failed miserably in Germany and Spain

The committee voted 15-10 in favor of Article 13, the provision that would require online platforms to monitor their users’ uploads and try to prevent copyright infringement through automated filtering. Article 13 will limit freedom of expression, as the required upload filters won’t be able to tell the difference between copyright infringement and permitted uses of copyrighted works under limitations and exceptions. It puts into jeopardy the sharing of video remixes, memes, parody, and code, even works that include openly licensed content

Replace Media, Share vCards, Mark as Unread, 2X Voice Messages, and More

Telegram 4.8.3 for iOS and 4.8.10 for Android are out today, bringing several nifty features and improvements.

1️⃣ Replace Media and Add Captions

Sending the wrong picture by accident is rarely fun. On Telegram, it was already possible to delete the message for everyone and send a new one instead. Now you can just replace photos or videos with the right versions right away

Start editing the message, then tap the paperclip button to replace the attached media. You can also add captions to photos or videos that didn't have one.

2️⃣ Double-Time Playback for Voice and Video Messages

You'll like this one if your friends enjoy sending long and thoughtful voice notes. From now on, you can switch to 2X playback and hear people get to the point faster.

We did our special best to ensure that your friends don't sound like Helium-breathing chipmunks as a result. Well, most of the times.

3️⃣ Mark as Read or Unread

This offers a quick way to get less important messages out of the way and highlight the chats that require your future attention.

4️⃣ Share vCards

Sometimes you want to share more info about a contact than just one number. With this update, you can select what data you want to send when sharing a contact. For example, several phone numbers or other vCard fields.

5️⃣ And Two More (on Android 💪)

Android users are getting a few extra goodies with version 4.8.10. Use the “create link” option in the formatting menu to make text URLs

Last but not least, it is now possible to cancel sending messages before they were sent.

Removing data on frequently messaged contacts and inline bots

To populate the ‘People’ box at the top of the Search section, Telegram calculates which of your chat partners you are likelier to message frequently. We calculate a similar rating for inline bots – thanks to that, the app can suggest you the bots you use frequently whenever you open the attachment menu (or start a new message with “@”).

We've implemented a way for you to remove this data from Telegram servers and stop Telegram from collecting it. It will become available in version 4.8.3 for iOS and version 4.8.10 for Android. Unfortunately, the update is still under review at the moment, but we expect it to become available in the nearest future.

Once you get the update, go to Settings > Privacy & Security and disable ‘Suggest Frequent Contacts’ to stop calculating ratings for contacts and inline bots, and delete all relevant data.
