Is Telegram free?


#1

Hello,
I would know more about this Telegram version
https://f-droid.org/en/packages/org.telegram.messenger/
why does he say that this app is not completely free?
what I would to know is if the client I’m going to install contains libraries or proprietary object code … I try to avoid proprietary software, even partially. Thanks

Hello,
We don’t allow proprietary libraries in F-Droid, so Telegram was patched to remove the proprietary parts.
The warning just says that the official Telegram app (the one on Play Store) contains proprietary libraries.

The server is also not (completely) free.

Also keep in mind that the server software is closed sourced.
