Telegram is currently the most popular messaging app, also known as “电报” (diànbào) or “纸飞机” (zhǐ fēijī). Telegram’s notable features include secure, anonymous, and surveillance-resistant communication. All activities on Telegram are encrypted and anonymous. It has hundreds of millions of users worldwide. We can use Telegram to chat with friends, follow channels for news, learn in groups, and utilize bots for certain automated promotion and operations.

When using HTTP, the security, stability, and proxy speed of the proxy IP are not as good as SOCKS5.
