Is it ok to use telegram as a place to store files and media?

I do not trust the most common cloud storage services, such as Microsoft OneDrive and Google Drive. Telegram is just a chat app, but of course, the files and media you send in Telegram to your friends or yourself get saved in the Telegram service, and they will end up being available in Telegram, even if you change the device.

Telegram is said to be a very secure service.

Is It Normal?

  • Anything digital is, by it's very nature, insecure. There isn't anything online which cannot be hacked.

  • I dont trust any of that shit. Ive downloaded so much crazy shit the government would target and execute me if marshal law broke out. I may or may not save my sensitive files on a microSD card and have them hidden.

    • I would not recommend saving stuff to a physical device if you are worried about the government. That pretty much does away with any plausible deniability.

      • True true but if they were to find illegal stuff on your device theres not much deniability you can do anyway. Its like having a bag of weed in your car that you just bought used. Its still in ur car so you get fucked. I havent done anything that bad to warrant the government to even look at me anyway. They have better stuff to do im sure.

  • "Telegram is said to be a very secure service."

    Who says? If it's Telegram, then it's hardly the most unbiased source. If you don't trust MS and Google, why the hell should you trust Telegram which, if the Wikipedia article about the firm is to be believed, is run by a company with a deliberately hazy background, and which uses an encryption system which experts have questioned?

    I think it's stupid to trust any tech company with anything important that you never want to be made public in any circumstances. I always assume that, buried somewhere in the T&Cs that nobody ever reads, there's a clause which allows them to use and divulge user-created data to third parties and I also assume that no encryption protocol will be hack-proof forever.
