This was stated by the Minister of Digital Development Yuri Gamzatov as part of a speech on TV. In particular, he said that many popular browsers of foreign developments in the current conditions do not guarantee users full data protection.

“When using these browsers, there is a high risk of losing personal data, as many security certificates are simply revoked. It turns out your personal information or the data of the device from which you are connecting can simply go online, ”Gamzatov said, recommending the use of domestic browsers like Yandex, which meet all security standards.

Separately, the minister touched upon the topic of VPN services, which also do not guarantee users the protection of device data: “In fact, people access certain sites through an intermediary that can freely access user data. Many people give their consent to applications,” the minister stressed.
