Feature #14567: Investigate mobile messaging applications
Test Telegram in Tails
As reported by sajolida on https://labs.riseup.net/code/issues/14504#note-5
Telegram seems to run over Tor & has a Debian package.
We should try running it from Tails.

I'm using Telegram on a daily basis with a Tor proxy, and it works great. Unfortunately, the desktop client doesn't support end-to-end encryption, only the mobile one does.
Thanks for reporting back! What do you mean by "the desktop client doesn't support end-to-end-encryption"? Are you referring to this: https://core.telegram.org/tsi/e2ee-simple#2-why-are-there-no-secret-chats-on-desktop-apps ?
So what's the use of this client then?

The client is used for non-end-to-end encrypted one-to-one and group chats. Some projects are using Telegram instead of IRC because of the smooth user-experience it provides on mobile clients, and some people (like me), are using the desktop client to access them.
