@hentaku_uwu I work with journalists from places where bad opsec can get you killed.
And I had several instances of someone coming to me and asking "Telegram is secure, right? they have encrypted chats?". When I responded they need to enable these explicitly, their faces went white as paper.
And here's an example of how Telegram treats security:
This is old, but shows their approach. Which is crap. I don't trust them one bit.
So it seems like DDG does no fingerprinting. Just people being hysteric.

The four eras of digital computing:
① Mainframe (centralised)
② Personal Computing (PC 1.0; decentralised)
③ Web/Cloud (Mainframe 2.0; centralised)

Really? Why? An Android device, with sufficient modification, can be made significantly more secure. Everything about the way iThings works makes it impossible for users to do any of those things. They are inherently pwned by Apple, not owned by the user.
'When registering an account with #Telegram, the app helpfully uploads the entire Contacts database to Telegram's servers (optional on iOS).
This allows Telegram to build a huge social network map of all the users and how they know each other.
It is extremely difficult to remain anonymous while using Telegram because the social network of everyone you communicate with is known to them (and whomever has pwned their servers).'
more reasons why telegram is not a good choice for secure messaging:
