The popular messaging application Telegram has declared that it blocks more than 2,000 Telegram channels affiliated with the ISIS terrorist group each month.
“Every day we block over 60 ISIS-related channels before they get any traction, more than 2,000 channels each month,” Telegram said in a post in its Twitter account.
According to a report by IFP, Telegram says the posts published in its channels are not encrypted and can be observed.
ISIS has been using Twitter, Facebook, and Telegram as the main means of its propaganda, and this has provoked widespread protests asking these apps and media to prevent the terrorists’ activities.
Telegram had earlier announced that at least 3,044 Telegram channels linked to ISIS were blocked only in January.
