Telegram messenger management, including founder Pavel Durov, has repeatedly insisted that
privacy of any user's correspondenceis the highest priority. The project's FAQ section mentions that Telegram shared 0 bytes of user data with third parties, including national governments. However, the authoritative German publication Der Spiegel claims that this is not the case. Telegram has reportedly fulfilled a number of data requests from the German Federal Criminal Police Office. In particular, she was given the data of users suspected of child abuse and terrorism. On the other hand, it is noted that it was difficult for German investigators to obtain data from Telegram on other criminal offenses.
