Telegram Feature Exposes Precise Address Hackers

Telegram messenger allows you to connect to people who are close to you if you have an Android phone or an iPhone.

Telegram developers have not yet confirmed that the vulnerability was discovered by the researcher.

A feature called People Nearby. It’s disabled by default. It allows users to show their geographical distance to others who have enabled it and are located in the same area

Telegram allows users to create local groups in a specific area. Hassan stated that scammers use fake locations to crash these groups, then sell fake bitcoin investments, hacking software, and other scams.

People Nearby is the greatest threat to Android users, as they provide enough detail to enable Hassan to attack. iOS 14 is now available and allows users to give only an approximate location.
