Telegram account limited for no reason: Why

When your Telegram account is limited, it might make you wonder why your Telegram account is limited. Below you’ll find four different reasons or explanations that can help you understand why Telegram has restricted your account even though you think it’s a mistake or there’s no reason. 

1. You’ve sent unwanted messages to groups

When you’ve got reported by multiple Telegram users for sending messages that are of no need to the users in a group, it means that you have sent unwanted messages to a group.

It may appear to you that you’ve done no wrong by sending those messages as it’s a group, but to the members, those messages are of no use which is why the moderators reported your account and it’s limited. 

You've sent unwanted messages to groups

2. You’ve exceeded the maximum number of messages

When you send too many spamming messages or promotional texts to other users on Telegram, the user doesn’t need to report your account to get it limited because on Telegram you have a limited number of messages that you’re allowed to send to users each day.

If Telegram notices that you’re exceeding the maximum number of messages that you can send from your account, your account will get limited immediately and you won’t be able to send messages till limitations are lifted. 

You've exceeded the maximum number of messages

3. Sending clips or media without a trigger warning

If you’re circulating a news or video which is true but has a sensitive picture attached to it, you should apply or attach a trigger message before sending the actual news so that it doesn’t harm the receivers or appear to them as a shock. Some media or pictures that are sensitive should be circulated after blurring them so that the viewers or receiver don’t get triggered after viewing them. This kind of insensitive activity can also get your account limited. 

4. It can be a mistake 

When you find your Telegram account has been suddenly locked or limited, it’s also possible that the Telegram team has made a mistake and limited your account for no proper reason.

You need to contact the support team or the Spam Info Bot channel of Telegram to report the issue and get the matter resolved as soon as possible so that your account can get recovered.
