Telegram feature/privacy PSA (profile picture history) 

Telegram keeps your previous profile pictures in a separate album, visible to everyone.

You can see them by opening the settings panel, and clicking/touching your current profile picture there. From this album you can delete them individually.

To me this is kind of a hidden UI. Maybe it's common knowledge, but I decided to post just in case someone's not aware of this feature, and doesn't want an old picture publicly visible.


Telegram privacy PSA (username tracking/history) 

@shello Another PSA: bots can track and store your username history (e.g. SangMata); as soon as you enter a group where they're present, you're being tracked. And anyone can query anybody's username history through the bot.

This was once used against me in a doxxing attempt. Be careful with your Telegram usernames.
