Telegram Messenger has been updated with a new Telegram Passport feature that lets users store their identity documents in the Telegram cloud.

Meet Telegram Passport – a unified authorization method for services that require personal identification. Upload your documents once, then instantly share your data with services that require real-world ID (finance, ICOs, etc.).

Telegram says your documents will be protected by end-to-end encryption.

"Your identity documents and personal data will be stored in the Telegram cloud using End-to-End Encryption. It is encrypted with a password that only you know, so Telegram has no access to the data you store in your Telegram passport. When you share data, it goes directly to the recipient."



In the future, all Telegram Passport data will move to a decentralized cloud. You can see a real-life implementation of Telegram Passport at ePayments.com or try out Telegram Passport using this page.

Telegram Messenger can be downloaded from the App Store for free. More details at the link below.

Isn’t this app made by some Russian programmers? Hmmm...

I would suggest that it’s far less likely that this is evidence of some nefarious Russian ploy and is far more likely a sign that Telegram has finally been I felt rated by and is now under the control of US deep intelligence.
