This article explains how to change “Who can see my phone number” in the Telegram app on Windows 11.
Telegram is a cross-platform instant messaging app that focuses on speed and security. It allows users to send text and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share photos and videos with end-to-end encryption to help ensure user privacy and security.
When you install and set up Telegram on Windows, you can start it up automatically when signing into Windows, turn the spell checker on or off, turn automatic media download on or off, turn hardware accelerated video decoding on or off, change media download paths, turn disable filtering on or off, change who can add you to groups and channels, turn send with enter on or off, and more.
Users can also configure “Who can see my phone number” settings in the Telegram app on Windows. The options are [Everybody], [My contacts], and [Nobody].
There can be various reasons why someone might want to change the “Who can see my phone number” setting in Telegram. For instance, if you prefer to keep your phone number private, you may want to change the setting to “Nobody,” meaning your phone number will not be visible on Telegram.
On the other hand, if you want your contacts to be able to see your phone number, you can set the option to “My contacts.” It all depends on your personal preference and privacy concerns.
