Safety in Social Networks: Government Guidelines for Cybersecurity

After the news about the Facebook social network tracing its users’ visits to various websites, the Russian quality control system (Roskachestvo) decided to give a piece of advice to the country residents about cybersecurity. 

The fact is that there are a lot of companies which let tracking tools appear on their websites and applications, as in return, they get the opportunity to analyze their audience in a more detailed way. That is how the company data is leaking. Users cannot completely protect themselves from the collection of personal information, but there is a way to make the use of the Internet safer.

Daniil Chernov, the Head of Direction Solar Appscreener of Rostelecom, stated that those who want to achieve maximum data privacy on their devices can be advised to either have a second smartphone or use a special protected space on the first, so all data in will be encrypted. In both cases, you can create a separate account, which your browser will perceive as another user.
