Passport data when registering in social networks

The draft order of the supervisory authority is posted on the Federal Portal of Draft Normative Legal Acts.

If the information entered by the Russian turns out to be incorrect, registration will be refused. It is noted that the information collected by Roskomnadzor can be transferred to other state bodies in cases determined by federal laws.

State Duma Deputy Anton Gorelkin explained the draft order of Roskomnadzor

He wrote in his Telegram channel that “the bogeyman about the Internet with a passport is as old as the Internet in Russia.”

“We are talking about a unified information system, a confirmed account in which can be used to register on a variety of resources and social networks and manage your personal data,” Gorelkin said.

According to him, at the same time, no one will prohibit social networks or other sites from using their own methods of user verification – for example, by phone number.

The Central Bank gave Russians advice on how to avoid becoming a victim of a scammer

  • Do not give your personal data to anyone, let alone passwords and codes – bank employees do not need them, and fraudsters will be given access to your money
  • do not store map data on a computer or smartphone
  • install antivirus software on all devices and update them
  • do not follow unknown links – even if the link seems to be reliable, check the addresses with the domain names of the official websites of the organizations
  • if a notification comes with a request to confirm the purchase and the code, and then an “absent-minded” person calls, who says that he mistakenly indicated someone else’s number, and asks to dictate the code to him – do not do this
  • if they tell you that you won something or you accidentally debited money from your card and you need to give your data to stop the operation – end the conversation and call the bank at the number on the card or on the official website
  • if they call allegedly from the bank’s security service – hang up and call the bank at the real number
  • if you are told that relatives or friends are in trouble – try to contact them directly
  • do not call back dubious numbers
