How To Delete Contacts In Telegram

Have you ever added the wrong contact to your Telegram contact list? Perhaps you mistyped someone’s username or another user added the contact without giving you their username. Or maybe there’s just someone in your contact list that you no longer want to chat with on Telegram. Fortunately, deleting contacts within Telegram is a simple process and only takes a few seconds to complete. In this article, we will show you how to delete contacts in your Telegram account, whether it’s an individual contact, or several at once.

How To Delete Contacts In Telegram

Open the Contacts page

Open the Contacts page in Telegram. If you don’t know how to do this, see our article on How to open Telegram Contacts.

Click on the contact you want to delete

Click on one of your contacts that you want to delete. You can also use the search bar at the upper-right corner of your screen and type in a username or a keyword and then click on it to find a contact that matches your criteria. Once you find a contact that you wish to delete, click the “x” icon next to it so that you can delete it from your list of contacts.

Write down their username and password (optional)

If you want to keep their username and/or password for future use, write them down. This is optional but highly recommended if you plan on using this service again in the future (e.g., if they send an important message). This way, if they send another message through this same account, they will not be able to gain access to your account using the same credentials (unless they know what their password is). It’s up to you whether or not this is something that matters for you or not; however, we would recommend writing down someone else’s username and/or password just in case any issues arise with your account information at a later time – especially if it’s an important contact.

Delete the contact

Once you have written down the username and password of the contact that you are deleting, click on their username and then hit “Delete Contact”:

Confirm your selection (optional)

If you want to make sure that this is the correct action for you, select the “Yes” button at the bottom of this screen.

Why You Should Use Telegram

It’s a secure app

Telegram is a very secure messaging app. This is because it uses end-to-end encryption so that all messages are secured and encrypted before they are sent. This means that no one can intercept your messages, including Telegram’s servers. You can read more about end-to-end encryption here.

It’s fast and reliable

Telegram has been known to be fast and reliable (except for the few hiccups that occur from time to time). The reason for this is because it has been built with the latest technologies and optimizations so that it can be extremely fast, even on slow internet connections like 3G or 4G LTE networks. For example, you can send large files (over 10 MB) in mere seconds! That’s how fast this app is! In addition, Telegram also utilizes a server cluster system where each server handles only one country or region at a time, thus making sure that there are minimal server outages and downtime when there are heavy loadings on Telegram servers around the world. This helps users across the globe to ensure that their messages will not get lost in transit (e.g., when traveling internationally).

It’s easy to use and fun too

Telegram is easy to use and fun! This is because it has a very clean and simple user interface. It also comes with a lot of cool features that you can use to make your chats more fun, such as stickers, GIFs, bots and much more.

It’s cross-platform

Telegram is available on both Android and iOS as well as on Windows Phone (Windows 8/8.1). This means that you can use Telegram on your phone or tablet regardless of which operating system you have! In addition, Telegram also works on PCs and Macs! Using the desktop version of Telegram is pretty easy: just download the latest version of the app from the website here (or via Google Play) and then log in using your username/password that you created earlier in this guide (just like how you would log in to Facebook)! If you do not have an account yet, make sure to create one at – it only takes a few minutes!

It’s open source

Telegram was created by a team of engineers from all around the world who love technology. Thus, they decided to release it under an open source license so that anyone can contribute to its development or improve upon its existing functions.
