Telegram leaks information

  1. At least that day had come!

    Some media reported that Telegram leaks IP addresses when users do voice calls.
    They tried to prove that such thing is happening to desktop version only and that they're going to improve it, but I wouldn't be so sure.
    It's not the first time when such news appear proving that it is not so private as described. They don't even provide all the users with encrypted secret chat as it is available for iOS only.

    What's your thoughts? Is Telegram still worth using or it's time to say good-bye and switch to something else?

    It's not only about desktop version. Even secret chats can be easily stolen. They have a lot of problems by the way

    How do you know that?
    Can you share some source to prove it?

    I was looking for the link, but can't find it. There was a guide from one guy which showed step-by-step how to steal a secret chat. I'll send you the link as soon as I'll find it.
