How Not to Get Hacked on Telegram

PART ONE

A lot of Forsage members use Telegram for communication, team coordination and track news.

❗️ We want to remind you about the #security rules that will help you avoid unauthorized access to your Telegram account.

🔒 Set up 2FA

You need to set up two-factor authentication to protect your account against hijacking.

🔒 Restrict what information you share with other Telegram users

— Who can see my phone number — Nobody.

— Auto Download Media → Toggle off

— Who can find me by my number — My Contacts, etc.

🔒 Modify data download and storage settings

On your mobile version of Telegram, navigate over to Privacy & Security → Data Settings and remove from Telegram storage any information you do not want to be there.

🔒 Check active sessions

To make sure this doesn’t happen, view all devices where your Telegram account is logged in. To do this, go to Settings/ Privacy and Security/Active sessions.

❌ Don’t open executable files from other users

Some hackers just use Telegram as a method of communication with their potential victims, rather than attacking any features inherent to Telegram itself.

❌ Watch out for impersonation

It’s extremely common for hackers and scammers to impersonate Telegram users by choosing a username that is very close to, but slightly different from, the original.

❌ Phishing

Do not follow unknown links, especially from strangers.
