Is telegram more secure compared to WhatsApp? Given the recent fiasco on how anyone can see your data on WhatsApp especially when saved on unencrypted cloud storage.
Based in Russia further raises doubts as to how much secure it will be.

Yup have set it up. That was to be my last resort but it seems there is no option.
As mentioned by you try to ha e both based on needs.
Just recalled I had conv with my cousin about the present scene on India and told him to converse on telegram instead of WhatsApp. Feeling guilty... 😕

telegram should be fine as well if secret chats are used on the app. i am personally happy with 2fa enabled in app which does not use sms based otp.

Are calls encrypted on telegram (call through secret chat) and signal? I read an article on news laundry that signal does not leak meta data. Would it also apply to calls? Much of the focus is on chats, few on calls.

i believe you can turn on peer to peer for all for voice and video calls on telegram.

Telegram can of course block channels and groups and individual accounts 🤷🏼

Telegram would be forced to block them on ios to keep the app listed on app store. I don't see how Apple can block in app content.
