Representatives of Telegram provided the German Federal Legal Police Office (BKA) with access to users’ personal data in a number of cases related to child abuse and terrorism, Spiegel reported on Friday.

In Germany, Telegram has become particularly popular among the particular so-called Querdenker (Lateral thinker) movement that opposes coronavirus restrictions and compulsory vaccination.
In Feb, at the request of the German born authorities, the messenger blocked 64 channels whose content material the government considered “ extremist. ” This was preceded simply by threats from the interior ressortchef (umgangssprachlich), Nancy Faeser, to obstruct the Telegram messenger throughout Germany.
