If you’ve ever used Telegram, you know that it’s a great messaging app. It has some amazing features that make it one of the best WhatsApp alternatives on the market. It has around 700 million monthly active users, indicating that it is a very popular app among people.
One of the most frequently asked questions about Telegram is whether or not the app notifies users when someone saves a photo.
In this article, we’ll answer this question in detail. We’ll also take a look at how to send self-destructing photos on Telegram so that people can’t save your photo.
Does Telegram Notify When You Save a Photo?
No, Telegram does not notify when you save a photo. This is because Telegram considers saving a photo to be a personal action and does not want to intrude on your privacy. When you save a photo, Telegram does not send a notification to the person who sent you the photo.
If you’re wondering if it notifies the other person if you take a screenshot of the photo or a chat, the same above answer applies. It does not have a Snapchat like screenshot notification feature.
However, if you were to prevent people from saving photos, you can use the Telegram app self-destruct photo feature.
While sending a photo, you can enable the self-destruct and add a timer to it. After the receiver has viewed the photo and the timer has expired, the photo is automatically deleted, leaving no trace.
You can also use the Secret Chat feature, which adds an extra layer of security by allowing you to set a self-destruct timer for both the chat and the photos. It even prevents others from taking screenshots of your chat.
Can People Save Photos on Telegram?
It’s important to understand that Telegram is a cloud-based messaging service. This means that any photos sent through the app are automatically uploaded to the Telegram server.
Telegram photos are not displayed in the gallery by default. This is not to say that they aren’t saved on your device. It’s just that Telegram hides them from the Gallery, whereas WhatsApp automatically displays all received photos in the gallery.
Telegram provides an option for users to save photos in the gallery. To do that, open the photo in the chat and then click on the three dots at the top. This will bring up a list of options, from which you must select “Save to Gallery.”
If you check your gallery app, you should see the photo that you just saved.
How To Send Photo With Timer on Telegram
You can easily send self-destructing photos to any of your contact on Telegram. To do this, simply take a photo or select one from your gallery within the Telegram app and then tap on the timer icon in the bottom right corner.
This will bring up a menu where you can select how long you want the photo or video to be viewable for (1 second, 3 seconds, 5 seconds, or 10 seconds). Once you’ve selected your desired timer, just tap “Send” and the photo or video will be sent with the self-destruct timer attached.
The user on the other end will see a blurred-out photo in the chat, which when tapped will reveal the actual image for the specified amount of time. The photo will then automatically disappear after the set time.
This feature is available both on Android as well as iOS, so you won’t have to worry about what device your friend is using.
Does Telegram Notify Who Saved Your Profile Picture?
Telegram does not currently offer a way to see who has saved your profile picture. This is likely for privacy reasons, as allowing users to see who has saved their Telegram profile picture could lead to some unwanted attention.
Telegram, which advertises itself as the most secure and feature-rich messaging app, may eventually add a way to see who has saved your profile picture, but for the time being, it does not appear to be possible.
Wrapping Up: Does Telegram Notify When You Save a Photo?
As of now, there’s no way Telegram will notify the users that you have saved the photo. However, if they make use of the above mentioned features on the app, you’ll not be able to save or screenshot the photo.
