How to disable notifications about new contacts joining?
You can easily disable push notifications for new contacts joining in Signal and Telegram through Settings. In the Telegram app, tap on the Settings icon and head to Notifications and Sound. Here, scroll to the bottom where you will find the ‘New Contact’ option enabled by default. You can disable this so you won’t receive a push notification every time a new contact joins Telegram.
In the Signal app, tap on your profile name on the top left corner of the screen. Then, head to Notifications. Here, you will see the ‘Contacts Joined Signal’ option enabled by default. You can toggle it off so you won’t receive push notifications for the same.
