On my Android on a mobile set, I recently have encountered a problem. I have Chrome and Telegram installed. The Chrome repeatedly and automatically open a link like https://t.me/joinchat/.... which invites a person to join a Telegram Channel. After this page, it automatically switch to Telegram Messenger which pop-up the same message box for joining the channel.

I don't know whether the source of this pop-up is Chrome or Telegram. Anyway I restricted people who can invite me to Channels on Telegram to my contacts and even blocked suspicious contacts, but it doesn't solve the problem. I disabled pop-ups in Chrome setting but it still didn't help.

How can I disable this pop up for this certain website, or any other solution?

  • So you're on a random website when suddenly it sends you a pop up, and after you press it, it opens the Telegram app? Did i get that right? That just sounds like regular ads in the browser and not a telegram issue

  • @a yes, it may be a virus. It sometime automatically opens the pop up and then opens telegram. How can I just block a certain website on chrome?

  • I didn't quite understood from your previous answer - it happens on random sites, or specific ones? Could you share the website/the join link/screenshots? May 13, 2018 at 20:17

The link to open the telegram channel will be there in your incognito windows tabs. Close that tabes from your incognito window. Then these telegram channels opening automatically when you open chrome browser will be stopped.


Go to app settings(settings of your mobile) of telegram and check for defaults Under applink

Disallow "open the supported link in app".
