How can I turn off sensitive media in Telegram?
If you would like to turn off sensitive media in Telegram to prevent explicit or sensitive content from being displayed, please follow these steps:
On your device, launch the Telegram application.
To access the menu, tap the three-lined icon in the upper left corner.
Choose “Settings” from the menu options at the bottom of the screen.
Choose “Chat Settings” or “Privacy and Security” from the Settings menu.
Look for an option called “Media visibility” or “Sensitive content.”
Select the desired setting by tapping the option:
The default setting displays all media without censorship, including sensitive content.
After confirmation: When you choose this option, sensitive media is hidden by default.
Hide media: This option hides all media, including sensitive content, by default, and you must tap on it to view it.
Select the option that suits your preferences and comfort level regarding the display of sensitive media.
Once you’ve selected it, navigate back to the main settings menu or exit the settings.
Hide your online status and last-seen status
Unfortunately, turning off the ticks that show whether you’ve received/seen a message is impossible. On Telegram, however, you can still hide your online presence or the last time you were active from the prying eyes of other users so as not to be disturbed every time you connect to the messaging application.
Here’s how to hide your Online and Last Seen status.
Go to Settings and follow by the Privacy and Security section
Go to Last Seen & Online
Under Who can see your Last Seen time?, select Nobody
This way, no one will be able to see that you’re online or when you were last online. But this restriction works both ways; you cannot check out such information about your contacts. And if you’ve only blocked specific connections, you won’t be able to see their online status or when they were last online, but you’ll still be able to view such information with the contacts you haven’t set any restrictions on.
