Hi! I want to use user name instead of my mobile phone number

Please follow all of the steps in the tutorial to set up a public user name. In step 6, if you delete your first and last names, you will have the phone number instead of a user name. Please note that other users will be able to find you by the user name, and you will be listed under "global results" when people will search for you. If they tap on your name, they will be able to send you messages even without knowing your real phone number.

Also, all of the names should be unique. That means that you might need to change your user name once the system does not accept the entered one because it has already been taken. For example, if you name yourself "Peter", you will have to add numbers or your last name, because the name. most likely, will have been taken by another Telegram user.
