#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.

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!

This is great! Super fast and easy to use. I just tested it and A zero-config Telegram bot that fights spam in chats and it was very simple to see what it would look like across platforms, and much quicker to edit the copy too. Great job! 🙌
