If you are one of the million users who use this private messaging app "Telegram" and looking for deleting your account as you no longer find it useful. Then, we are here to demonstrate to you how to do it.
There are two ways to do it:
1. From the application.
2. From a browser.
Deleting your account is one of the most time-eating tasks. Even creating an account on any application is easier than trying to delete that account. But if you know where to go and which button to click, then it can turn into a very easy task.
So, let's discuss how you can delete your account from Telegram.
How to delete a Telegram account?
As it is already said, it can be done via two ways out of which one is a self-destructive feature of Telegram and the other one is a little complex where you have to do it yourself. Let's discuss both one by one.
Deleting your Telegram account using the Telegram application on your phone:
This one is a little easier than the latter one but it will take some time to delete your account.

2 Push the three-line icon.
In the top left corner of your application, you will see an icon. Click on it to open the menu bar.
3 Go to "settings".
In the menu bar, you will find the Settings options.
