How to Auto-Delete Messages in Telegram Chat


Some messages aren’t alleged to last forever. There are some Telegram groups and conversations where it’s best if messages are automatically deleted during a day or every week . Here’s the way to auto-delete messages in any Telegram chat.

Here, choose the “Clear History” option.

Swipe down and you’ll see a new Auto-Delete section. Here, choose between the “24 Hours” and “7 Days” option, and tap the “Enable Auto-Delete” button to enable the feature.

Telegram will now automatically delete all messages from the conversation after the set time (including media).

If you want to disable the feature, go back to the “Clear History” menu in the conversation. Choose the “Off” option, then tap the “Confirm” button.

The process for enabling the Auto-Delete feature is really hidden in the Telegram app for iPhone. First, navigate to the conversation where you want to enable the feature.


Tap and hold a message.

From the top of the screen, tap the “Clear Chat” button.

From the pop-up message, choose the “Enable Auto-Delete” option.

A new “Auto-Deletion” screen will load. Here, you can choose the “After 1 Day” or “After 1 Week” time frame. Tap the “Done” button to proceed.

Telegram will now automatically delete messages that are older than the set time frame.

If you want to change or disable the feature, tap the time frame icon from the text box in the conversation.
