Why You Should Turn On Two-Step Verification In Telegram?
Two-Step Verification is a feature that protects your Telegram account from being hijacked by hackers and scammers.
It blocks illegal takeover of Telegram accounts, by requiring a secret password that only you know. And it lets you recover your account via email.
This prevents hackers or scammers from taking over your Telegram account, even if you accidentally share with them the login code.

How To Turn On Two-Step Verification In Telegram!
In this guide, I will share with you how to turn on two-step verification in Telegram.
Step 1 : Open Telegram.
Step 2 : Go to Options > Settings > Privacy and Security.
Step 3 : Tap on the Two-Step Verification option.
Step 4 : In the Two-Step Verification screen, tap on the Set Password option.
Step 5 : Key in your preferred password, which can be any combination of capital or small letters and numbers.
Step 6 : You will need to key the same password again, to confirm it.
Step 7 : Next, you can create a hint to remind you of your password. This is optional, and you can skip it if you prefer.
But if you key one in, the hint will be displayed whenever you are asked to key in the password in the future.
Step 8 : After that, you will have the option of adding a Recovery Email address, just in case your account is hijacked.
This is optional as well, but I highly recommend you add a recovery email, which is simply the email address you use.
Step 9 : If you entered a Recovery Email address, Telegram will now send you an email with a 6-digit code to verify that email address.
Step 10 : Look for the Telegram verification code email, and key in the 6-digit verification code.
That’s it! You’re done! From now on, you will be required to key in the password whenever you log into a new device.
This will prevent hackers / scammers from taking over your account, even if you accidentally give them the Login code you receive by SMS.
