Update: Anti-Spam 2.0 - AI-based spam detection and actions

Introducing Chainfuel's AI-powered Spam Detection Engine. Learn how to use this new functionality to keep your groups free of spammers.


March 29, 2020

We are very excited to announce the availability of our new AI-based algorithm to keep telegram communities free of spam. This new algorithm automatically detects spam with high accuracy, so fewer false positives or missed spam messages. Here's how it works: once a message is classified as spam the bot automatically deletes that message. The bot also privately notifies the admins of your group that have registered on Chainfuel.com that a spam message was detected and provides options such as to ban/mute the user or to mark the message as not spam.

To enable automatic spam detection for your telegram group, login to https://app.chainfuel.com and browse to the Anti-Spam page using the sidebar. In the Anti-Spam page, scroll down to find the 'Automatic Spam Detection' section (as shown in below image). Toggle the button to enable Automatic Spam Detection and click on save at the bottom of the page.

To test this feature out, you can send a spam message from a non-admin user to test that the bot is indeed able to detect spam in your group. Note that the bot doesn't filter messages from admin users. Here is a sample spam message you can send for testing:

Investing in bitcoin trading pays a lot. You only fail when you stop trying. All you need is a honest account manager that will work through success in bitcoin investments. I found happiness when I started trading forex with Mr Harry Donald, I invested $500 and got $5,250 in 24hours. I had no choice than to increase my investment and it has been all testimonies. Thank you Mr Harry Donald for all your goodwill. :point_down::point_down::point_down::point_down::point_down::point_down::point_down: https://t.me/joinchat/

Once a non-admin user posts this message in the group, the message is automatically deleted and the bot will send you a private message with some actions you can take as shown below:

You can then ban/mute the user directly by selecting an action in your telegram client. Once you select the action, the bot will immediately perform the action and notify you when done. This allows you chose how you treat different spammers and avoid banning a user for a message that might be allowed in your telegram community.

I highly encourage each of your to enable this for your telegram group so that you can keep your group clean and safe from spammers. As always, let us know in our telegram community if you have any feedback or need support.
