Everytime I open Telegram messenger and wait for a few seconds, then I check Stock AppOps in my android setting, I see that telegram has used camera same time, While I never used camera. my telegram version is official. Is this a security risk from telegram or this is a normal function only?

    It may have just used the camera APIs to check that it had access, it doesn't mean it was actually using the camera. – Mokubai Jul 31 '17 at 18:16
  • You can try removing the permission from Telegram, and see if it asks you for camera permission and check again this app to see if it was used. I don't have a source for it, but @Mokubai suggestions sounds reasonable. – arieljannai May 13 '18 at 20:24
