Whether you have a digital footprint, online accounts or use smartphones. It is important to understand that this data can be used in some way. This point of view was expressed by Milos Wagner, vice-president of Roskomnadzor.
We all leave digital fingerprints. Your interactions with government agencies already generate information about you, even if they are mundane documents. Even if you used a simple push-button phone, your trace remains – your number is associated with your geographic location and movements. This information is stored in digital form.
Milos Wagner emphasized that the collected data can be useful to improve the quality of service. He also reassured me that I didn’t have to worry too much about it. When we create social media accounts, our data is shared with platform partners. This includes location, devices used to sign in, and other details.
