Are you getting a notification every time your contact join Telegram? Learn how to stop Telegram from notifying every time someone from your contact joins the messenger.


This option only works if you have only one account. If you have multiple accounts, even you turn off both, it should work only on the main account and you’ll still get a notification on the second.

However, please take note that this does not prevent Telegram from creating a new chat with everyone from your contact list who joined the messenger.

This event notification is so annoying. Every time I see the notification, I’ll open the Telegram app and delete every empty chat. With this setting disabled, at least I wiped out one of the problems.
