Why should you monitor illicit activities on Telegram?

From discussions on hacking, data breaches, and financial fraud to the trade of illicit products and the propagation of extremist ideologies, Telegram has become an important hub for a wide range of illicit activities. 

As dark web threat actors increasingly migrate to this platform, Telegram has become a critical source for threat intelligence and dark web monitoring. The changing dynamics of cybercrime and the lengths threats actors go to stay anonymous make monitoring these threats more challenging than ever and is expected to become even harder in 2024.
