Telegram is to introduce a new feature called Passport, a standalone option for services that need actual real IDs or documents. Passport allows users to save their files and data in Telegram's cloud and send it directly to services that need that information (via Neowin .)
The company is looking at users who use Telegram Passport log to sign up for Things like financial services or ICOs, which require real ID cards, passports or other documentation. With Passport, you can upload documents and personal information which users will be able to transfer to supported services with a single tap.
It is obvious that security is a major concern here, given that any document you want to use to raise awareness of your ID is probably the kind of thing you want to keep safe, but Telegram says that All data uploaded is stored in its cloud with end-to-end encryption. In addition, all data is encrypted with a password, with a telegram claiming that it's not possible to access the data at the end – just you and the companies you choose to share it will be able to view the document and your information.
Of course, for Passport is useful, it will require companies to actually support it, and right now there's only one: ePayments.com, an online payment system (even if the Telegram has also set up a test page if you & # 39; I like to see how it works for yourself.) Telegram offers free Pass to developers, with additional information on how to integrate it available on the developer's website.
