How to Remove a User from a Group in Telegram

A Telegram group is a great space to share and discuss information, organize events, create announcements, or have a conversation. There are no ads or subscription fees, and all members can participate with equal permissions in the global message board that never stops working.

However, as with most social media platforms, there is no reliable way to screen members when they join a group on Telegram. As such, the groups attract users of all backgrounds, including those with malicious intent.

In this article, we’ll show you how to remove a user from a group on Telegram.
