Telegram down in Italy: what’s happening

Telegram down on September 25 in Italy: many malfunction reports for the popular chat service

A Telegram down was reported on September 25 in Italy. By the minute, more and more users are reporting malfunctions for the popular messaging service on the Downdetector platform. The app and the desktop version do not allow either to send or receive messages.

The down began around 1 p.m. on Friday, September 25 and affects both iOS and Android devices. For this reason, the problem that caused the malfunctions could directly affect the connection to the servers of the Telegram service. On the Downdetector site, a platform where users can report app malfunctions and downs, a spike in reports has been reached, affecting all of Italy, and in particular large cities and the north of the country. Telegram has made it known that it is working and that the problem is being resolved.

Telegram down, what doesn't work

Logging into the Telegram app from both Android smartphones and Apple iPhones, users are no longer able to send or receive messages of any kind, as well as having difficulty logging into their account. The malfunction of the messaging service could be due to a lack of connection with the servers, a problem that had never occurred for Telegram, which to date has always stood out for its high reliability and stability.

Telegram working to solve the down

The first reports began to arrive around 1 p.m. on September 25, first on Twitter and then also on the Downdetector website. At 3 p.m. there are still many reports of malfunctions, but meanwhile Telegram has confirmed the problems detected in a post on the official Twitter account. The company is talking about a down across Europe, and therefore also in Italy, and has made it known that they are working and that the problem will be solved soon.
