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, change who can see my phone number, change who can see your last seen and online status, change who can call me, and more.
When you use Telegram on Windows devices, you can turn “Two-Step Verification” on or off to protect your privacy and add a layer of security.
Turning two-step verification on or off in Telegram adds an extra layer of security to your account. With two-step verification, you must enter a password and a verification code sent to your phone number to log in to your account.
This helps protect your account from unauthorized access, ensuring that only you can access your messages, media, and other sensitive information. By turning this feature on, you can enhance the security of your Telegram account and protect your privacy.
