Forwarding Messages is a helpful telegram feature that makes it easy for you to share fun and entertaining content with other contacts. However, forwarding is a concern for privacy as messages sent by you to someone else are sent one day back to your account. Fortunately, you can anonymize your messages so that anyone who receives forwarded messages from you can not see that you originally sent the message.
In some ways, telegram tagging can be a good thing. There is credit where credit is due, which can be useful when creating the message forwarded. On the other hand, by default, a forwarded message is out of your hands and can be forwarded to users who you do not want from the outset. The last thing you want is for those users to knock on your telegram door. So make sure they never see your day.
Changing these settings is easy. In iOS, tap the Settings tab at the bottom right. Under Android, tap the hamburger menu icon, then touch Settings. On both platforms, touch "Privacy & Security" and select "Forwarded Messages."
On iOS, you can leave this page with your selections. However, on Android, you either have to tap the checkmark in the top right corner or tap "Apply" in the popup when you leave the page.
Depending on your preferences, someone who receives one of your messages may tap the name to display your message information or the message "The account was hidden by the user" is displayed. The following screenshots are hard to spot, but forwarded messages with links have a bold name and those without are not bold.
