Hey there, Telegram users! Want to know how to send disappearing photos and text messages on Telegram? You're in the right place! In this easy-to-follow guide, we'll explore how you can use this cool feature to add a layer of privacy to your conversations. It’s perfect for those moments when you need to send sensitive or temporary information!

Setting the Scene for Disappearing Messages

First things first, let's talk about what disappearing messages are. On Telegram, you can send messages, photos, or videos that vanish after a set time. It's like sending a secret that self-destructs! This feature is super handy for sharing sensitive info or just having fun with friends. Plus, it's easy to use. We'll show you how in the following steps.

How to Send Disappearing Photos on Telegram

Ready to send your first disappearing photo? Here’s how:

  1. Open a chat, tap on the attachment icon, and choose a photo to send.
  1. Before sending, tap the clock icon to set a timer or if it can only be viewed once, without a duration.
  1. Select the duration, and voila! Your photo will disappear after the set time once the recipient sees it.

Sending disappearing photos is perfect when you want to share something momentarily, without leaving a digital trace.

Disappearing Text Messages

Disappearing text messages work a bit differently. They're part of Telegram's 'Secret Chat' feature. To use this:

  1. Start a chat with a contact.
  2. Tap on their profile picture or name.
  1. Tap on the three dots menu top right and choose Start Secret Chat.

In Secret Chat, messages automatically have end-to-end encryption and both the sender and the recipient won’t be able to take a screenshot. You can also set a self-destruct timer for every message you send. Once the recipient reads the message, the countdown starts, and poof! The message vanishes after the timer ends.

Disappearing text messages are ideal for confidential conversations or sharing sensitive information securely.


Disappearing messages keep one-on-one and secret chats private. But, for private Telegram channels or groups with special content you have to pay for, you need strong tools.
