Telegram: how to prevent messages and contacts from strangers

Telegram is one of the best applications for exchanging messages over the Internet, standing out through the channels and a strong social component in the app. It is one of the best alternatives to WhatsApp, being full of functions to send messages and more.

More and more people are using this instant communications platform and, if you don’t want to receive messages and calls from strangers, with this little trick – a simple setup – you can put an end to this inconvenience.

Prevent strangers from contacting you on Telegram

  • Opens the Telegram application on your Android or iOS smartphone
  • Locate the Settings / options – signaled by the three horizontal strokes – figure 1

  • Controls who can see your number on Telegram
  • In that same section we can see the blocked contacts
Telegram Tip
Figure 5: privacy options on the Telegram platform
  • If you hide the phone number from everyone, your contacts will only be able to find you through their username.

Above we can see the granular controls for privacy on the Telegram platform. This is where we adjust who can see our phone number, and if they wish, create exceptions to the established rules and define criteria for each contact.

Telegram has several services in addition to direct messaging such as the option to discover contacts nearby and channels in the vicinity – within a 3 km radius.

Pay attention to the Nearby People option

The option is disabled by default, but if they have already used and / or activated it, they can receive contacts from strangers, people who are not in the contact list.

Although it is a good way to meet new people, it can also cause some inconvenience, as our contact will be visible to all users within a 3 km radius.

With this simple change you can put an end to random contacts on Telegram.
