The most commonplace are the summer cottage season and the return of labor migrants. An important factor is the rampant fraud, and push-button gadgets are less prone to hacking.
Sergey Vakulin, an expert on information and computer security, recommends using push-button devices for especially important negotiations, which do not have the ability to connect to modern communication networks. He explains:
