Telegram introduced a new crypto-oriented feature in its milieu- a unified authorization service for its users worldwide- revealed by a recent blog post.
Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging and voice over IP service developed by Telegram Messenger LLP, a privately held company registered in London, United Kingdom, founded by the Russian entrepreneur and a bitcoin supporter Pavel Durov.
The software has been known for its commitment to encryption of data and limiting third-party access to the extent that Russia tried to thwart the software when it refused to hand over its encryption keys to the government.
Telegram is permitting platforms and applications to integrate the service in their apps free of charge which is accessible in both Android and iOS. An international payment provider ePayments currently using Telegram Passport for its platform where users can experiment with the verification system-Telegram Passport.
A provision similar to Digilocker:
Telegram passport is somewhat parallel to DigiLocker, a cloud service which was introduced by the Indian Government. The IDs on the DigiLocker can be shared when signing up for a service on a government platform. Recently, the government announced that Indian Railways will now accept digital Aadhaar & Driving License from DigiLocker as valid ID proofs.
