I’m not sure where to send my question, so I put it in newbie.
After many years of using Whatsapp, I decided to try Telegram.
The problem is the checking system the program used: instead of sending me an SMS I received a normal call, in English (I live in Brazil), telling the five numbers. Is that valid or usual? It finished installing alright.
A friend of mine warned me that that is not a normal procedure, and might be scam. The problem is I do not receive SMS messages, so I pressed on the Telegram’s button to use other ways to send me the five password numbers. My guess is it selected call, which came from the USA.
Where can I check over these install procedures?
as far as i know usually you get SMS but you can verify also over telegram from another device if you are already registered, I read at the FAQ that telefon telling numbers is also there but it says only if you are using two factor validation.
Maybe the wrong topic? Doesn’t seem to problem with EndeavourOS or Linux? Maybe lounge…
i think “Newbie” is o.k. … we do use telegram as our main help chat also
Telegram does call you if you chose to not receive SMS. I haven’t used the service myself, but the call need not be from your country. In the past, I have received calls from different country if I choose call verification. Because the call can only be initiated from the country where they have some set up.
If you have a different device running Telegram on the same mobile number, then Telegram can send you a code as a text. You can see the text on Telegram installed on the other device and input it on your PC/laptop.
