I do like pidgin too.

I want to make a warning against Telegram. It violates the privacy of
you in two matters:

1. It shows to the sender (with read confirmation) that you have read
the message of the sender. I contacted and they claim that
this is not a bug, but a feature. You can not disable this "feature".

2. It shows to at least all your contacts (I think even to everyone who
knows your mobile number) that you are "online" and you can not disable
this either.



One of the great benefits of BlackBerry Messenger is that‎ you can notice that your contact is online and has read your message; else how do you really communicate?
