For those who value their online privacy, Telegram is a godsend. The chat app has now garnered a fair following since launching in August 2013 – nearly 500 million users in total.
As Telegram founder Pavel Durov said, the app will always be available “free, forever” to casual users, so no one should feel pressured into spending the extra cash if they don’t want to.
