    According to these guys, it's not as secure as they claim:

    Crypto Fails ? Telegram's Cryptanalysis Contest

    Telegram, AKA ?Stand back, we have Math PhDs!? ? Unhandled expression

    I don't understand everything they're talking about, but there has been a discussion between the authors and the Telegram devs for a while. Keep in mind that Telegram's popularity makes it more open for criticism. There are many other secure app alternatives out there, and their lack of popularity means you won't be reading as much about them as you would about Telegram.

    Telegram got lucky and received a large number of subscribers during Whatsapp's server outage when Whatsapp transitioned to Facebook ownership.

    Also, take a look at this for a comparison between BBM and other apps:

    https://www.eff.org/secure-messaging-scorecard

    I personally don't fully agree with their scorecard and feel that it is favoring open source code. There are pros and cons to both, really. Take a look at Wickr. It scored low, but it's one of the few (or only) apps that don't require ANY information when you register, has end-to-end encryption, and they've been audited by at least one or two auditors.

    TextSecure is a great option too, but unfortunately, it's not cross-platform yet. I'd consider it if I am able to use it to communicate with iPhone users.
