Setup Self Destruct for your Telegram Account on the iPhone 6
Edited by Kara, Jen M, Eng
Hello, you are watching VisiHow. In this video, I will show you how to setup the self-destruction for your Telegram account on the iPhone 6.
Let's go to Telegram, the world's safest messenger.
Let's go to Settings.
First, let me explain what the option was created for.
In case you lost your phone and you don't want somebody else to have access to your personal account and private conversations, your Telegram account will delete all its information by itself. This will make sure that the third party will not be able to have access to it or message others from your name.
Open Settings first on the bottom right-hand side.
Go to Privacy and Security.
At the very bottom, there is an option to delete my account if I'm away for a certain period of time.
There is an option for either 1 month, 3 months, 6 months or up to 1 year.
Tap on Done.
And here you go!
So if you do not log in at least once within this period, which is 3 months, your account will be automatically deleted, along with all of the groups, messages and contacts.
So again, if you want you can change it to 1 month, 6 months or 1 year.
Now let's leave it at 6 months.
So as I said, if you don't log in within a 6 month period, your account will be deleted with all of the information being carried on it.
If you have any additional questions on your phone application, please leave them in the section below and I will try to answer them.
Thank you for watching VisiHow, and have a safe day. Goodbye!
