How to Get the Link of a Telegram Group
Telegram is an instant messaging service focused on speed and safety that rose to fame over the last couple of years, because it’s very easy to use and free. Born as a competitor of WhatsApp, the app has been around since 2013 and it was launched by developers Nikolai and Pavel Durov. Telegram’s popularity took off as soon as people started to realize that this service is one of the best on the market when it comes to secure messaging solutions, since it guarantees the users privacy thanks to its end-to-end encryption. Another reason as to why Telegram is being preferred over WhatsApp – the leading instant messaging app all around the world – is the recent controversy surrounding the latter’s new privacy policies; that is why Telegram is now estimated to have about 500 million active users.
Telegram can be used simultaneously on every device, because the messages automatically synchronize on all of your devices, such as your smartphone, tablet or computer. We could say that Telegram offers a much more impressive service than, for example, its competitor WhatsApp: the app lets you send messages, photos and every type of file up to 1,5 GB (doc, zip, mp3), you can create private chat groups with as many as 200,000 members, and there also public channels, open to every Telegram user.
Speaking of private Telegram groups, every one of them has a link. This invite link can be used to make other Telegram users join the group, and the people who can share it are usually the group creator and the administrators. But if you’re none of these two, you can still get the link to share if the creator or an admin gave you and other group participants the permission to do so.
In the case that you have the permission to share said group link and you want to know where to find it, you clicked on the right article, because we’re going to find out how to get a Telegram group link in a few easy steps!
Here’s how you can find a Telegram group link
As we said previously, a group link is used to invite Telegram users into the group, but you can also add new contacts by searching their username on Telegram. But since we’re here to simply explain how to get a group link, these are the steps you’ll have to follow:
– on your mobile device, open the Telegram app
– tap the group you want to get the link of
– now, tap the name of the group at the top
– then select the Edit icon
– here, tap “Group type”
– you’ll be able to see if the group is private or public; as the group creator or admin, you can switch between these two types of group
– if the group is set to public, you’ll be able to create a “Permanent link” for your group
– if the group is private, you’ll see the group’s invite link
– copy or share the link to allow other Telegram users to join the group!
Note: if you choose to revoke the link, it will stop working immediately.
