How to delete your Telegram account forever

If you don’t want to use Telegram anymore, you have two ways to delete your account.

Telegram is one of the most used messaging applications, but you may have gotten tired of it and want to not only stop using it, but delete your account forever. The service offers you two ways to do this, so we are going to explain both so you can decide which one interests you the most.

Program self-destruction

If you want to cancel your account, but you have doubts and you want to give yourself time in case you change your mind, Telegram offers you the possibility of programming its self-destruction. To do this, open the Telegram app on your phone and go to Settings. Here click on the “Privacy and security” option and choose the “Advanced” option where you will find the “Delete my account if I am away” option.


This option will delete your account when you go a certain period without using it. By default it is programmed at six months, but you can change it to 12 months, 3 months or 1 month. Your account will be destroyed by itself when the chosen period has passed and you only have to connect and log in if you change your mind so that the scheduled self-destruction is canceled.

Manual removal

Like other services, Telegram also offers you the possibility to delete your account at any time and manually. To do this, you must access the Web that the service has dedicated to make losses.

Once on this page, you just have to fill out a simple form that asks for the phone number you have associated with your account. Telegram will send you a six-digit confirmation code to the application of your cell phone that you must enter on the Web to verify your identity.

Once the code is entered, click “continue” to confirm your account is unsubscribed. From this moment your Telegram account will be gone forever.

Telegram is one of the most used messaging applications in the world with a total of 200 million monthly active users, but it falls far short of its great rival, WhatsApp, which already has 2 billion users worldwide.
