Telegram Passport rolls out for secure sharing of Real-life IDs

Author at TechGenyz Apps
Telegram Support

The telegram has launched a new feature in its latest update released earlier this week that’s based on identity and privacy.

The Telegram Passport feature lets a user store all of their identification documents in the app’s end-to-end encrypted cloud, letting them access whenever you need to share those with a third party.

It is convenient as you get to scan everything once, then get it stored, and share whenever you want. As for the concerning part, you will be trusting Telegram with all of your identifications for storing safely in the cloud, and that none else can ever access those.

The company said that just like the chat conversations in its platform, the personal information is protected by end-to-end encryption. The data will remain password protected, one that you will choose. Accessing and sharing will be possible by using the password, and of course when you will want to.

Telegram’s seriousness regarding security was established when it took a strong stance against providing a decryption key to the Russian government earlier this year. Having said that, it is clear that the brand has now become a target to people with malicious intent (criminals?).

In future, the tech firm envisions making it easier for the companies to verify you via the Telegram Passports. The companies will have a verification provider for confirming that your real identity is tied with your Telegram account. If you don’t want to tie your identity with Telegram ID, you can ignore the feature.

Another future plan of the company is likely to enter the blockchain space, providing a cloud solution, and all data on personal identity will transit to the decentralized cloud. Companies related to exchanges, crypto and finance will be benefitted by such user authentication as Telegram Passport. Many countries require crypto companies to have real identities of their customers, which is one of the instances the feature will come in handy.

The Telegram was supposed to arrange for an initial coin offering of its own within this year, but that reportedly failed.

The Telegram Passport feature received its first support from ePayments. Telegram said that developers can go through the integration of their apps and services for free.
