Why you may delete Telegram application

Before discussing how to restore and reinstall the deleted Telegram application, let us see why you may need to reinstall Telegram and restore your old account. In general, there are several reasons for deleting Telegram application from the device, which are:

  •  The application is accidentally deleted by the user.
  •  Phone apps are deleted due to viruses or malwares on the device.
  •  The device is stolen or lost and the user needs to reinstall the Telegram app.

Please note that Telegram accounts will be automatically deleted by Telegram in case the user is inactive for 6 months. Therefore, if you do not use your Telegram account within 6 months, it will be automatically deleted by Telegram and you will not be able to recover it in any way.

To avoid accidentally deleting your Telegram account in the future, consider the following tips:

  1. Be cautious when navigating the settings menu to avoid accidental taps on the account deletion option.
  2. Enable two-step verification for an added layer of security. This will require you to enter a password or PIN before making any significant account changes.
  3. Regularly back up your chats and media files using Telegram's built-in backup feature or by exporting them to an external storage device.

Since Telegram calling feature is active for all users in all countries, if you did not receive the call the first time, request again. However, in the following sections, there are other methods discussed.

Installing unofficial versions of Telegram

Usually, not sending the code to reinstall deleted Telegram apps is one of the common problems for some users. One of the upcoming solutions is to install the unofficial version of Telegram. These unofficial versions usually do not have a problem to receive a confirmation SMS. After receiving the SMS, restore your account on the unofficial version.

Now request the code again. The code will be sent to your account in the unofficial version of Telegram. Enter the received code in the original version so that you can restore the deleted Telegram and finally delete the unofficial version from the device. Some of these unofficial versions of Telegram are: Mobogram, Hotgram, Telegram Plus, etc.

Install Telegram on another device before deleting the app

If you plan to install Telegram on your new device, it is better not to delete this app from the previous device. To do this, just download the Telegram application and then enter the number with which you previously had an account. In such a situation, a code will be sent to your Telegram account on the old device, and you can access your account on the new one by entering the confirmation code.

You can also restore Telegram in the web version and receive the confirmation code using Telegram web and enter it in the application on the new device.
