With Telegram you can make your forwards more private thanks to the latest novelty of the application : now the app allows you to hide the sender from the forwarding itself . Just click on the message to be forwarded and choose the aforementioned function; with more new options now available, like the ability to change the conversation.
The messaging applications are increasingly competitive, we know that such apps are the most popular smartphones. There is even other software that ends up competing with private messaging, such as Instagram or Twitter. Therefore, applications such as Telegram are determined to distinguish themselves by implementing more and more functions with each update . Telegram 8.0, the latest version of the app, is a great example: the leap in the privacy of forwarded messages is notorious.
Choose in each forwarding if you want to hide the sender
Every time we forward a message from any conversation, Telegram adds the name of who originally wrote the message so that its authorship is known . This is a common function in these types of applications, although there are times when it is not very useful, especially if whoever forwards the content wants to keep its author anonymous.

WhatsApp vs Telegram: which is the best messaging app?
Telegram 8.0 has improved the message forwarding system between chats to add a bit of privacy , also to make this function more powerful. Once updated, Telegram gives the option to change the chat where the forwarded message was about to be published (in case the conversation was wrong). And the option that interests us is also released, hiding the sender.
If you want the person to whom you forward the messages to not discover who wrote them in the beginning, you must do the following:
- Make sure you have your Telegram updated to version 8.0. You can download it directly from the Telegram website.
- Forward any message in the usual way: press and hold on it until the forwarding option appears.
- Choose the chat where you want to send the message, but do not publish it yet. Click on said forwarding, in the lower writing box.
- You will see that Telegram shows a menu with different options. Click on ” Hide sender“.
- Click on “Send messages” and Telegram will publish them without knowing who wrote them.
This is a great way to protect the original author of your messages, an action that greatly improves privacy. Although with a clear disadvantage: in this way it is very easy to appropriate the content sent by another person . One of lime and another of sand, as it usually happens.
Telegram’s 8.0 update is now available on its website , it will also hit the Google Play Store shortly. The sender is hidden even from users who have another version of Telegram installed .
