Other Ways to Forward Files or Text on Telegram without the sender name?

Even though Telegram offers you an option to hide the sender name from the files you forward, sometimes the feature doesn’t work.

Many Telegram users on Reddit have claimed that tapping the ‘Hide Sender Name’ does nothing. If you’re experiencing the same problem, you must relaunch the Telegram app or clear the cache.

If you still face the same problem, you need to rely on alternate options. For the text files, you can copy the message to your personal saved messages chat and then forward it from there.

For media or any other file type, you need to download it on your phone’s internal storage and upload it to the chat where you want to send it. This way, the files won’t have any sender name or caption.

Where to Find Telegram Downloaded Files?

If the Telegram app’s Automatic media download feature is enabled, the downloaded files will be in the Gallery or Files.

Another way to find the downloaded files is to open the Internal Storage and find the Telegram/Telegram Video folder. You need to look at the Pictures folder of your phone’s internal storage for the images.
