Telegram Two-step Verification
Table of content
If you have activated Telegram account for yourself, you can use it on several devices, including mobile phones, tablets, computers, laptops, etc. If you want to activate your Telegram account on a new device, you must enter your Telegram number in the new device so that Telegram will send you an authentication code (this code will be sent to you via SMS and also to your Telegram on all devices on which your Telegram account is active.) Then, by entering this code in the new device, you can log in to the Telegram account.
So far, logging in to your Telegram seems to be done only with your own approval, which seems safe, so what is the benefit of two-step verification?
If you enable 2-step verification for your Telegram account, you will need to enter 2 codes in 2 steps to log in to your account. The first code is the same code that is sent to the relevant phone number via SMS and also to your Telegram account (on any device that is connected). The second code is the same password you have chosen to log in to your account while activating Telegram 2-Step Verification .
Now, suppose the Telegram account belongs to the support team of a company and the members of the support team have access to the information in this Telegram account. In this case, each member of the support team can give access to the company's Telegram account to anyone; all they have to do is give the authentication code that is sent to the company's Telegram to that person so that he can easily enter the account. However, if the company manager enables two-step verification for the company's Telegram account, other members who have access to the company's Telegram account will not be able to allow anyone else to access this account, because it is the company manager who sets the second code and only he knows what the code is. Even if the two-step code is given to the employee for the first time, it is very easy for the manager to change the two-step verification code, in which case the employee will no longer be able to activate the company’s Telegram account for someone else or on another device without the manager's permission.

Forgetting the Telegram Two-step Verification Password
Sometimes you may forget your two-step password. This is very important because if you are not able to remember your password and also have not set an email to restore your account, in the last step of activating the two-step verification of Telegram, you will not be able to restore your Telegram account and you will have to create a new account with the same number after a week. Deleting an account will cause you to lose all your information such as messages, group membership and channels, and you will no longer be able to access your Telegram chat information if you do not have a backup of it.
Steps to Access Telegram Account If Two-step Verification Password is Forgotten
Step 1 If you have determined the recovery email while activating the two-step verification, you must choose the “Forgot Password?” option.
Step 2 Telegram will send you an email containing the new password. You must go to your email and use the password sent to you by Telegram as the new password for your Telegram account.
Step 3 If you do not remember your email or do not have access to that email (for example, you have forgotten its password) then you will not be able to see the code that Telegram sent you. In this case, you must tap the option “unable to access my email”.
Step 4 The only solution to log in to Telegram is the “Reset Account” option, which allows you to delete your previous account (to which you can not log in) and create a new account with the same phone number.
