  5. 5
    Tap on the search bar and start typing Telegram.
    As you type, Telegram should show up in the drop-down list. Tap that. You may notice that this app wasn't the top choice, at least according to popular culture, which is interesting because Telegram is actually one of the most secure messaging platforms in the world. It was designed by the person who created what is commonly known as the Russian Facebook, VKontakte. Tap on Telegram to read more about the app.

    If you scroll down, you can see the description of the app.
    Telegram syncs with all of your devices. You can use it on a desktop, tablet, and phone. It is very much like WhatsApp, only it is very secure and Facebook doesn't own it.

Questions and Answers

Invalid phone number when setting up Telegram?

Invalid phone number when setting up Telegram. I have tried: When I'm entering my phone number it says: Invalid phone number

Any virtual or VoIP numbers are not supported in Telegram (for example, Republic or Google Voice numbers should not be used during registration). Use the number on your SIM card. Just in case, make sure that your phone number is correct when entering it (a plus sign with a country code that you select by tapping on the country drop-down menu and no extra preceding zeroes or eights).
