Telegram responds to charges calling for removal from the App Store

Telegram claims that over the past week it has removed hundreds of publications with public incitement to violence in the United States of America. The rival rival’s response to WhatsApp comes in the wake of the lawsuit that puts Apple in the dock for not removing the platform from the App Store, the official app store for iOS devices like the iPhone.

The response of Pavel Durov, founder and top manager of Telegram, thus addresses the criticisms of the Coalition for a Safer Web that accuse the platform of not moderating and allowing all kinds of extremist speech to strike the platform of Russian origin.

Pavel Durov goes public to defend Telegram

Durov guarantees that his platform enforces the respective Terms of Service and that, to that end, they have removed hundreds of public incitements to violence. Durov’s publication was made on his Telegram channel and shared on social networks.

Telegram welcomes peaceful debate and protest, but our Terms of Service explicitly prohibit incitement to violence “, wrote the strong man of Telegram. “Human rights movements around the world use Telegram daily to defend human rights without resorting to violence. “, adds the founder of rival WhatsApp.

Rooms and chat encrypted on Telegram

On the other hand, Durov’s statements omit the encrypted chat function available on the platform. This function protects conversations from any access by third parties, thereby inhibiting the mechanisms for moderating content.

It should be noted that although Telegram moderates publications in public rooms, it continues to resist external pressures that intend to also see encrypted chats submitted to the company’s scrutiny, in addition to being accessible to the authorities.

The theme gained new prominence after the riots that ravaged the Capitol, the heart of American democracy, with accusing fingers pointing to extremist, pro-Trump groups. Faced with the wave of violence registered, platforms like Parler would suffer the heart of the reprisals of Google, Apple and Amazon. So far, Telegram remains unscathed.

Currently, several voices are heard that advocate a decrease in privacy protections for encrypted chat services.

Durov acknowledges the increase in violence on Telegram


The platform’s strongman claims that he saw this same increase in violent threats in various services operating in the United States of America, not being a phenomenon exclusive to Telegram.

In early January, the moderation team at Telegram began to receive an increase in cases pointing to violent activities and attack coordination through our platform “, points out Durov.

The moderation team will have removed the publications that went against the Terms of Use of the service. “Thanks to your efforts (moderation team) hundreds of public publications and incitements to violence have been removed. “, stresses Durov.

Telegram received an incredible number of users in just three days, the result of WhatsApp’s disastrous decision to update its Privacy Policy. Despite having already postponed its entry into force until May 15, WhatsApp continues to lose users to Signal, Telegram, and other of the best alternatives.
