#3 Product of the DayNovember 08, 2018

Shieldy — is the best solution in Telegram to fight annoying spammers. It asks newcomers to execute a set action within a set period, otherwise it kicks them. That's all. Also it's completely free and open source.

    A good way to stop spam bots


    Very rude message that turns down all new and existing users without an option to change it

    Was very excited to find this bot initially, it was super easy to make it work, but then it started to scare our new users in a public chat that he'll "kick them out" if the wouldn't respond in 60 sec... I was trying to find how to change the message, but no luck. This message doesn't sound friendly at all, so have to delete it now and keep looking for alternatives.

Most of our Telegram communities that we carefully moderate experience huge waves of spammers (up to 50 bots added per day) who just join the groups, wait for a day and then unexpectedly send a spam message. I decided to fight it with a simple solution. As bots don't make any moves for the first hour or so, asking newcomers to do something to verify their humanity could be a great idea. So I've built it into a free bot and made it completely open source — Surprisingly, almost 99% of spam accounts get blocked before spammers can even notice. I've been using it for a while in my chats and thought it might be useful for somebody. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
