- 2Now, we'll click on Telegram application.Let me explain what a secret chat is. A secret chat that you create with anyone on your contacts list allows you to message each other in a safe way. You will know that your messages are not saved on any intermediary service, and besides that, you can set up an erase timer that will delete your messages in whatever amount of time you set, or right after the other person reads the message.Advertisement
- 4Make sure you gave your Telegram application access to your contact list.You can see how to do that in one of my previous videos, so now my Telegram has access to the contacts. Let's create a secret chat. You should see the three options in blue at the top of the Contacts screen. The second option is New Secret Chat. That's where I'm going to tap.

Keep in mind that this change only refers to all the messages you send after you set up the timer. Everything else that was sent before does not apply to the timer.

Does Deleting a secret chat delete unopened messages from both sides?
If I leave a message in a secret chat, and it is my last message to send, and I delete the chat, will the receiver still be able to open that last message that they didn't view or does the whole chat delete from both sides?
As long as you selected Clear History you should be okay and the messages will be gone from their device even though they have not read them yet.
