Telegram is an instant messaging app with a simple, fast, secure, and synchronized experience.
You can send media and files without size limits, with data securely stored in the Telegram cloud.
Photos that you send can also include a timer—3 seconds, 10 seconds, or 30 seconds.
Once the timer ends, the photo will self-destruct/disappear and the recipient won’t be able to view it anymore.
In this guide, you’ll learn how to send an expiring, a self-destructing, or a disappearing photo or picture on Telegram.
How to send a disappearing photo on Telegram
Here’s how to send a disappearing photo on Telegram:
- Open the Telegram app and navigate to the chat.
- Tap on the attachment icon.
- Select a photo that you want to send.
- Tap on the timer icon.
- Choose how long the media will be kept after opening (e.g. 10 seconds).
- Send the photo.
Note: If you’ve set the timer to “10 seconds”, the photo will disappear in 10 seconds after it’s opened by the recipient.
