Telegram’s Peer-to-Peer Login (P2PL) Program: A Convenient Option for Free Premium Subscription, but with Privacy Risks”.

Telegram is providing free premium subscriptions in exchange for utilizing users’ phone numbers to send authentication SMS messages.

Telegram has recently introduced a new program where users can receive a free premium subscription by sending up to 150 one-time password authentication SMS messages to other users. However, this initiative raises concerns about privacy as it involves sharing phone numbers with other users who log in to the social network.

The premium subscription offered by Telegram includes additional tools such as the ability to upload files up to 4GB, download media content faster, convert voice messages to text, and send exclusive stickers. To access these premium services, users have the option to participate in the new program by using their phone numbers to send OTP SMS messages.

This program, known as peer-to-peer login (P2PL), allows users to voluntarily offer their phone numbers to be used as a relay for OTP SMS messages. By joining this program, users agree to the legal terms set by Telegram, which include allowing their phone numbers to be used for a maximum of 150 OTP SMS messages per month in exchange for a free monthly premium membership.

It is important to note that participating in the P2PL program may incur charges from mobile phone operators for the SMS messages sent. Additionally, sharing phone numbers via OTP SMS messages poses risks to user safety, as the recipient of the SMS can potentially misuse the information for spamming or fraud.

Telegram emphasizes that users can withdraw from the program at any time and acknowledges that it is not responsible for any inconvenience, harassment, or damage that may result from users’ participation in the initiative. The company launched the P2PL project
