[Pssst, Gmail, You Listening?] Telegram 4.9 added a ‘Mark as read’ button in notifications

Monday, July 30th, 2018

And while we tend to feel that broad access to software is almost always a good thing, not everyone is going to agree, and sometimes all it takes is one government getting upset about one app to cause some serious fallout.

Telegram is a service for sending messages while remaining anonymous. That's something with which Russia has taken issue, and it just banned the service over it.

In Iran's case, the report comes from Mashreghnews.ir, who quotes Alaeddin Boroujerdi, the Chairman for the Committee for Foreign Policy and National Security of the Islamic Consultative Assembly of Iran.
