    do you recommend the telegram desktop app?

    https://desktop.telegram.org/
    currently i'm using the web version.
    i don't like security and privacy problems so that is why i'm asking

    i would appriciate a simple answer much more because i'm not a linux savvy

    thank you!

    Sure.
    Telegram has both a snap and flatpak version you can install on Ubuntu
    Snap: https://snapcraft.io/telegram-desktop
    Flatpak: https://flathub.org/apps/details/org.telegram.desktop
    Both are the same desktop app, choice is your as to which is preferable.

    Flatpak permissions can be be easily set for flatpaks with another flatpak packages called flatseal:
    https://flathub.org/apps/details/com...chx84.Flatseal

    Snaps permissions are fairly strict.
    When a snap is installed you can use the Software store to check which permissions are changeable.
    (In Software you can look at Installed packages, then find the package and in it's home page it'll show a permission tab up top.)

    Both also have in-depth command line options to set various controls too.
    Code:
    snap help
    flatpak help
    will give a quick overview of some functions for each.
