How To Hack Telegram Accounts in 2023 – A Streaming Geek‘s Guide

Wondering how to get access to someone‘s secret Telegram conversations? As a fellow tech enthusiast, I‘ll show you exactly how to hack Telegram accounts in 2023.

Whether you‘re a concerned parent or partner, hacking Telegram is tricky but possible with the right tools. In this detailed guide, I‘ll cover different methods, apps, and tips based on my extensive experience in online privacy and security.

Is Hacking Telegram Legal?

This is the big question – and the answer depends on your specific circumstances.

Generally, hacking someone‘s account without consent is illegal. But there are a few cases where courts may view snooping as reasonable:

  • As a parent: If your child is a minor, monitoring their online activity to protect them from harm is justifiable. A 2022 survey found 67% of parents had checked their kids‘ messages.
  • Within a relationship: Suspecting your partner of cheating or illegal activities may make hacking seem like your only option. Just don‘t use it to control your partner.
  • With consent: If the account owner explicitly asks you to access their Telegram, it‘s not hacking. Get their approval in writing first.

I always recommend consulting a lawyer about your particular situation before attempting to hack any account. It should never be your first choice, but a last resort when communication fails.

Now let‘s look at methods to access Telegram messages and account data.

Hack Telegram Remotely with a Spying App

The easiest way to secretly monitor someone‘s Telegram account is using a spying app like mSpy or FlexiSPY.

Here‘s how mSpy works:

  1. You create an account on the mSpy website and get access to their dashboard.
  2. Choose a plan – costs range from $10 to $200 per month depending on features.
  3. Download the app and install it on the target device when you have temporary access.
  4. mSpy hides itself in the background and relays Telegram data to your account.

With mSpy, you can see all Telegram messages, photos, videos and files exchanged. It also tracks location history and captures keystrokes for other app passwords.

A major downside is that spying apps require you to root or jailbreak the target phone first. There are also serious ethical and legal concerns around consent.

But if you have physical access and just need temporary monitoring, mSpy can be an easy plug-and-play way to remotely hack Telegram.

Use the Telegram Web Version

Did you know you can access Telegram right from any web browser?

If the target device already has an active Telegram Web session, you can directly log into their account.

Here‘s how:

  1. On the target‘s phone or computer, open where they‘re already logged in.
  2. On your own device, go to the same Telegram Web URL in the same browser.
  3. You‘ll now be logged into their account and can read recent messages.

The downside is that this only works until they log out of Telegram Web. If they‘re active on the browser version, you may get more persistent access.

Steal Their Saved Telegram Sessions

The Telegram desktop app stores login session data in files named tg-session.json.

By copying these files from their computer, you can load them into Telegram desktop on your own computer. This lets you access their account without needing a password.

Follow these steps:

  1. Get access to the target‘s computer where Telegram desktop is installed.
  2. Browse to Telegrams data folder, usually in Local AppData.
  3. Look for any tg-session files and copy them to a USB drive.
  4. On your computer, place the tg-session files in Telegram‘s data folder.
  5. Launch Telegram desktop – you should now be logged into their account!

The downside is that session files expire after some time, especially if they stay active on Telegram desktop. You‘ll also need periodic physical access to refresh your session files.

Intercept Their SMS Messages

Here‘s a sneaky hack to take over someone‘s Telegram account – intercept their SMS messages.

When registering for Telegram, it sends a confirmation code via SMS to verify the device. By intercepting this code, you can register their number on your own device.

Follow these steps:

  1. Get access to the target‘s unlocked phone.
  2. Go to Telegram and tap "Sign Up".
  3. When Telegram sends the SMS code, intercept and write it down.
  4. On your device, sign up for Telegram with their number and use the SMS code.
  5. You now have control over their Telegram account.

The downside is that this only works once during registration. Also, they can easily regain control by resetting passwords and enabling two-factor authentication.

Nuclear Option – Use Telegram‘s Delete Feature

This last resort tactic lets you reset an account by deleting it entirely:

  1. Take over the account by intercepting login codes.
  2. Initiate the Delete My Account option in Telegram‘s settings.
  3. Confirm the deletion on Telegram‘s website.

Once deleted, the account and all its messages will be wiped from Telegram‘s servers forever.

The nuclear option destroys the account instead of accessing it. Unless you urgently need to reset everything, don‘t use the deletion method.

How Can You Tell if Your Telegram Was Hacked?

If you‘re worried someone may have hacked your own Telegram account, here are signs to watch for:

  • Unfamiliar devices logged into your account – check Telegram login history.
  • Your SMS verification codes being intercepted.
  • Getting locked out because hacker changed password.
  • Friends mentioning conversations you never had.
  • Suspicious apps installed on your phone or computer.

To protect yourself, enable two-factor authentication, frequently change passwords, and avoid clicking sketchy links. Stay vigilant!


I hope this guide was helpful in explaining how to hack Telegram accounts in 2023. While risky and unethical, there are apps and techniques that can reveal private Telegram messages.

Consider all alternatives before resorting to hacking someone‘s account. And take care to use any accessed data responsibly without betraying trust.

With the right tools, hacking Telegram is possible – but never take it lightly. Stay safe out there! Let me know if you have any other questions.
