In this post, you will learn how to disable Telegram account link in forwarded messages. This may not seem important for all of us but to be honest it does. How? Well, when someone forwards your message to others, that message carries a link and upon opening that link, anyone can access your profile.
That’s not all, anyone means, whether the person is in your contact list or not. He/She can easily access your profile by using that link. Telegram is no doubt loaded with best privacy settings but this single thing should be taken care of. Believe it or not, it is a major concern. One can easily check your profile, even he/she is not in your contacts.

The main concern here is since your profile link is getting out for no reason. Anyone can easily poke into your profile and which is not comfortable at all. The best you can do is to disable link forward messages settings. Since there is no word about this from the Telegram team, all we can do is disable this option.
