Among the several messaging applications that are available for cross-platform usage, Telegram is one of my favourite chatting applications that are quite reliable. Unlike WhatsApp and most other chatting applications, Telegram offers a number of additional features, which look after the privacy of the users, and at the same time, you can also get additional options to chat with people you know, some of which are not available in most popular chatting applications like WhatsApp. Just like that WhatsApp, you can also join several groups, with more participants limit than that of WhatsApp, and you can also share big files with your friends using Telegram without worrying about file size limit.
Even though there is a file size limit but that is good to go for most users, who use Telegram. One of the most useful features available on Telegram is the simplified ability to add multiple accounts. For example, if you have two mobile numbers, say one for personal use and the other for official use, you can use Telegram to add both the mobile numbers and chat conveniently. Even though you can get the same on WhatsApp but that feature is not available natively and you have to depend on a secondary WhatsApp app like WhatsApp Business or other apps, which are used for the purpose of cloning. However, if you are using Telegram, you will never need any additional apps to add multiple mobile numbers and chat at the same time.
So, without any for the delay, let’s get started with how you can add multiple accounts to your Telegram account and delete them whenever you feel like doing that. I will be using Telegram X for this tutorial, however, the process is going to be the same for the regular Telegram app, as well.
Adding a new account on Telegram
Step 1: Open Telegram X or Telegram on your smartphone, and tap on the hamburger icon on the top left corner of the app. Now, tap on ‘Add Account’ just below the existing account name.
Step 2: Now, enter the mobile number that you will use on Telegram, and tap on the forward button, or the tick mark in the number pad.
Step 3: After you enter the number, you will get a confirmation code through SMS. If you are already using Telegram with the same number on a different handset, you can also get the confirmation code on Telegram that is installed on your previous handset. After you enter the code, tap on forward or the tick button on the number pad.
Step 4: Telegram will also want to access your contacts so that you can easily start messaging them. Tap on ‘Allow’ in the ‘Find Contacts’ message.
Step 5: Now, Telegram is ready with the new number. You can easily switch between the accounts added to Telegram by tapping on the hamburger icon. You can again tap on ‘Add Account’ again to add more accounts to Telegram.
Remove an account from Telegram
Step 1: If you want to remove any of the multiple accounts, then Open Telegram on your handset, tap on the hamburger icon and then tap on the account that you want to delete. Now, tap on the hamburger icon again, and tap on ‘Settings’.
Step 2: In the ‘Settings’ menu, tap on the triple-dot icon, and then tap on ‘Log out’.
Step 3: In the next step, you will be served with some alternative options. You can review the options if you want, or directly tap on ‘Log out’ if you want to stick to your decision. Now tap on ‘Log out’ again to confirm the process of logging out from your Telegram account.
With the help of Telegram, you can add up to 3 accounts, which is enough for most users. However, if you want to add more accounts, you can also use Telegram X along with Telegram, and that way, you can add up to 6 accounts. But the limit of 3 accounts is going to cater to the needs of most users out there.
So, that was all about, how you can add multiple mobile numbers to Telegram, and delete accounts from Telegram. Do you have any questions? Feel free to comment on the same below.
