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 have it start every time your system starts. This setting is useful when you use the app frequently and don’t want to start it up when you log in manually.

Some people might launch Telegram automatically when their system starts for a few reasons. First, if you use the app frequently, it can save time and effort to open it automatically rather than launch it manually every time you log in.

Additionally, if you rely on Telegram for work or important communications, launching it automatically ensures you don’t miss any important messages or notifications.
