Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging service similar to Facebook Messenger, which supports multimedia messages, voice and video calls and files of any type (doc, zip, mp3, etc.). A strong focus on encryption and deregulation, combined with its multi-data centre infrastructure and encryption makes it a very secure and fast messaging service.

Telegram has over 500 million monthly active users and is one of the 10 most downloaded apps in the world.
