Pavel Durov: "Smartphones are a tracker"


Pavel Durov, founder of Telegram Messenger, said: “Humanity is losing its freedom year after year. The fault lies in the digitalization of society. Whereas 20 years ago there was a decentralized Internet and a relatively free banking system, now companies like Google and Apple are using data and applications. Censors, as well as Visa and Mastercard, restrict the goods and services we can pay for. Smartphones are also "tracking devices" today.
