How to enable two-step verification on Telegram

telegram two-step verification

Telegram has great privacy and encryption features turning it into one of the most popular messaging apps around the world. Telegram users can enable two-step verification on Telegram to add an extra layer of security to their accounts. If you prefer to add a password as part of the app's two-step verification, here is how to set up.

Is it possible to enable two-step verification on Telegram?

When setting up Telegram for the first time, you only need to enter your phone number and then verify it using a text message received by that number. After that there is no login or security. You simply enter your Telegram account by clicking on the app icon.

So may be asking how you can enhance Telegram's security. Is there any two-step verification? 

If you mean two-step verification, including getting a text to your phone or using an authenticator app like Google Authenticator, you must know that Telegram doesn't do this.

But you still can use this feature by adding a password for entering the account. So the second step is simply a password. This is way better than no security at all. So it is highly recommended to enable two-step verification on Telegram.
