Popular messenger Telegram was updated to version 4.9. Its main innovation – the emergence of the service authorization Passport.
Passport is a unified method of authorization in the services that require personal information. In it, you can store your documents, passport details, address, telephone number, e-mail. All your data will be protected using end-to-end (end-to-end) encryption.
“Telegram for the data — random set of characters. We have no access to information stored in your Passport. When you share information, it is sent directly to the recipient”, — stated in the message.
In future all Passport data Telegram will be stored in the decentralized cloud.
It is also noted that the company wants to use a third-party verification. Thus, some services will not need to request the data. Instead, they can rely on the fact that the account has been verified.
Users can test the service on the website of the payment system ePayments.com
