heads-up: Barstool Sports is moving to telegram so if a ton of folks suddenly pop up that otherwise would probably have never joined there you go

might be a good opportunity to deny telegram access to your phone contacts if you're worried about privacy in that regard

@Ace unfortunately that won't help. If they have your phone number, they'll be informed you're a potential contact. Denying Telegram access to your contacts doesn't prevent this.

@salameleon @Ace A very recent update changed this, allowing you to make it so only people you already have as contacts can find you by number (settings>privacy & security>phone number>who can find me by my number?; it only appears when "who can see my phone number" is set to "nobody")


@starseeker @Ace Thanks for the tip. Looks like that protection is opt-in, but it's something that pretty much everyone should change.
