In Russia will introduce identification of users of online games via phone number Source:

Russian security Council instructed the FSB to develop a number of measures in order to implement identification of users of online video games, social networking and other online services with personal cell phones – writes RBC daily. Representatives of the Russian government has repeatedly stated that terrorists are using video games to communicate with each other. But there is no evidence that the public was not given. Earlier, similar situation was with multiple messengers (including Telegram ), now is the turn to video games.

At the meeting, which was held on 26 October, representatives of the Russian security Council instructed the Federal security service and the Ministry of communications until June 1, 2018 to develop additional measures of regulation of activities of organizers of information dissemination in the Internet. If you remember, from January 1, 2018, such requirements must meet all the messengers, which work on the territory of Russia. Requirements include mandatory identification of all users of the network the number of video games of their mobile phone, and forwarding the registration data to law enforcement upon official request. President Vladimir Putin has signed the minutes of the meeting.

"In Paris, the terrorists have organized their communication not only through encrypted instant messengers but, as far as I know, PlayStation 4, where it is impossible to determine whether calls to shoot and kill to the events of the virtual game or real terrorist attack," — told in February 2016, the head of Roskomnadzor Alexander Zharov.

How it will be organized by the system – while difficult to say. After all, if the law is still in effect, games in which there is a voice or text chats, you will need to finish so that they included the registration of telephone numbers for a user proof of identity. Given that hundreds of such games and thousands – you can imagine how much effort and money will need to invest in their developers. But only the question arises: do they need all this in order to please the Russian security services? It might be easier just to leave this market and forget about it as a nightmare. That's what he thinks the founder of the famous Russian company Nival Sergey Orlovsky:

"the leadership of our country is a strange idea that to combat terrorism it is necessary to control all the channels of communication between people. All over the world produced tens of thousands of games per year, a significant portion of them contain chat rooms where players can chat. How are they going to force all developers in the world to fulfill the requirements of the Russian legislation, when the share of the Russian market of the world is around 2%?".

Today on the list of "organizers of information distribution in the Internet" includes dozens of different services, including same Telegram, WeChat, social network "Vkontakte", "Odnoklassniki", Dating sites and other Internet community. According to statistics, about a year ago, the number of gamers in Russia amounted to more than 43 million people. Press Secretary of the President of Russia Dmitry Peskov refuses to give comments about the new bill, from comments also abstain representatives of FSB and the Ministry of communications.
