Banks will not be able to collect digital information about Russians without their consent.

By the end of 2019, an application will be launched that will allow every citizen of Russia to manage their data

in state information systems inwithin the framework of the project “Digital Citizen Profile” The pilot function of this system will be a service that allows Russians to give banks access to information about themselves to make a decision on granting a loan.

Russian citizens no longer have toindependently enter personal data for receiving credits - they will be automatically downloaded from state information systems and will automatically receive legal status.

In the future, based on the digital profile will appear andother services that allow residents of Russia to remotely use various functions, receive benefits and tax deductions. In addition, the service will allow Russians not to carry documents with them, only an identification number is needed.

Previously it was planned that the full programThe Digital Profile will be launched by 2023. Now a similar platform works in China. It includes, among others, biometric data - for example, the system is able to recognize a person by walking.
