Copy the link to your Telegram profile on Android, iOS, Windows

Unlike most messengers, in Telegram the user identifier is not only their phone number used when registering, but also a unique name, which within the application can also be used as a link to a profile. Additionally, many channels and public chat rooms have their own links, presented in the form of a classic URL. In both cases, to pass this information from user to user or to share it publicly, it must be copied. This article describes how to do it.

Copy Telegram link

The links that are presented in Telegram profiles (channels and chats) are mainly used to invite new members. But, as we said earlier, the username, which has the traditional form for this messenger @name, is also a type of link, which can be used to reach a specific account. The copy algorithm for both the first and the second is almost identical, the possible differences in the actions are dictated by the operating system in whose environment the application is used. That is why we are going to consider each of them separately.

  4. The link will immediately be copied to the clipboard, after which you can share it, for example by sending it in a message to another user or posting it online.
  5. That's how easy it is to copy a link to someone's profile, bot, public chat or Telegram channel.
