Telegram users in Europe for the next few hours may experience connectivity difficulties due to server overheating.
This was reported in his Twitter messenger creator Pavel Durov.
“Mass overheating in one of the Telegram server clusters can cause some connectivity problems for European users in the next few hours,” he wrote, adding that the problem is already being resolved.
Service Downdetector fixed connection problems in 41 percent of users, with difficulties in sending and receiving messages, 35 percent were encountered, 23 percent of users reported unsuccessful authorization.
In addition to Europe, users also report the fall of Telegram in Egypt, Kuwait, as well as in Central American El Salvador.
The telegram was blocked by the decision of the Tagansky District Court of Moscow on April 13. The reason for the restriction of access was the refusal of the service to provide the FSB with encryption keys, which allow reading the correspondence of users. The obligation to provide the secret services with an algorithm for transcribing correspondence is contained in the antiterror package of laws (known as the “Yarovoi law”) passed by the State Duma in June 2016.
