This flow demonstrates how-to use Telegram for remote connection.
Telegram is a messaging app with a focus on speed and security, it’s super-fast, simple and free. You can use Telegram on all your devices at the same time — your messages sync seamlessly across any number of your phones, tablets or computers.
If you’re more paranoid than your regular user, then Telegram got you covered. Telegram’s special secret chats use end-to-end encryption, leave no trace on our servers, support self-destructing messages and don’t allow forwarding. On top of this, secret chats are not part of the Telegram cloud and can only be accessed on their devices of origin.
Setting up Telegram Bot
For setting up a Telegram Bot you need a account. After that, you need to start and write
/newbot to @BotFather and follow the steps to create your bot.

- Token: is the token you get from BotFather when you create your bot.
- Users: list of allowed users (without )
