How to Send Anonymous Messages in Telegram Groups

how to send anonymous message in telegram group

A few months ago, in October to be exact, Telegram added a feature to allow group admins to send messages anonymously. The feature, which Telegram calls ‘batman mode‘, does not reveal anonymous admins in the group list, and messages sent by unnamed admins are signed with the group name and not with the username.

Here are the steps to send anonymous messages in Telegram groups. Before starting with the steps which I will mention below, it is worth noting that only admins can send anonymous messages in Telegram groups. Also, admins cannot choose to change their anonymity in their groups. If you no longer want to be anonymous, you will have to request group owner to revoke permission.
