How can I recover my deleted Telegram account?

Answered by Jarrod Smith

To recover a deleted Telegram account, you have a few options. One way is to use the account recovery feature within the Telegram app itself. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Telegram app on your device and tap on the “Forgot your password?” link on the login screen.

2. Enter the phone number associated with your deleted account and tap on the “Next” button.

3. Telegram will send a verification code to your phone number via SMS. Enter the code in the app to verify your identity.

4. Once verified, Telegram will prompt you to create a new password for your account. Enter a strong password and tap on the “Next” button.

5. After setting a new password, you will be logged back into your Telegram account with all your chats, contacts, and settings restored.

If the above method doesn’t work for you, you can contact the Telegram customer support team for further assistance. Here’s how you can do it:

1. Open the Telegram app and go to the “Settings” menu.

2. Scroll down and tap on the “Support” option.

3. In the support page, tap on the “Contact Us” button.

4. You will be redirected to the Telegram Help Center website. Scroll down and click on the “Write to us” button.

5. Fill in the required details, including your email address, username, and a detailed description of the issue.

6. Attach any relevant documents or information that can help verify your account ownership.

7. Once you have provided all the necessary information, click on the “Send” button to submit your request.

A customer support executive will review your request and get back to you via email. They may ask for additional information or documents to verify your account ownership. Be prepared to provide any necessary details to expedite the recovery process.

In the meantime, if you wish to create a new Telegram account using the same phone number and username, you can do so. However, keep in mind that the new account will be separate from your deleted account and will not have any of your previous chats, contacts, or settings.

I hope this helps you in recovering your deleted Telegram account. Good luck!
