Questions & Answers

Question:
What happens if I delete my Telegram account?
Answer:

All your data will be flushed from their system: all messages, groups, and contacts associated with your account will be deleted. Termination of a Telegram account is irreversible. If you sign up again, you will appear as a new user and will not get your history, contacts or groups back. People, who have your phone number in their contacts, will be notified. The new user will be displayed as a separate conversation in their messages list and their conversation history with this new user will be empty.

Question:
What happens to my the messages I have sent to contacts when I delete my account?
Answer:

Your contacts will still be able to chat in the groups that you have created, and they will still have their copy of the messages you sent them. So if you want to send messages that can vanish without a trace, you can consider using the self-destruct timer instead. Click here for more information on the self-destruct timer.

Question:
Can I delete my account from my mobile device?
Answer:

The quick answer is Yes. But you must navigate to the deactivation page through the mobile app. However, we recommend that you use a non-mobile browser if possible.
