Telegram founder Pavel Durov says that he has been in Russia since 2011, since then he got used to being under surveillance. For this reason, when he learned that he was being spied on by Pegasus spyware, he was not surprised to hear this news.
Durov said that he already knew that he was being spied on 2018. They say that Android and Apple are more dangerous than Pegasus. They accept the government’s words for their business profits and give them the data of the people.
Android and iOS more dangerous than Pegasus
What’s even more important is what they think of companies like Google and Apple. He says that Pegasus is just an example of espionage in front of operating systems like Android and iOS. They say that these platforms succumb to the government and this plays with the privacy of the users and the government uses the data of the users according to their own benefit.
Android or iOS operating system compulsion of people
With the advent of technology, people’s work has become easier. But after this the biggest problem is that they endanger the privacy of the users. That is to say that users know that there is a threat to privacy from Android or iOS, yet they will have to choose this operating system. Because there are no other systems apart from these. There is no other option left. Durov says he wants competition in this market as well. So that people can get many options and systems that play with privacy can be distanced. Durov has criticized Apple and Google in the past. Last year he slammed companies for imposing 30% sales tax on all digital goods sold.
