Officially all citizens personal datas are in Government databases like Passport(fingerprint, facial recognition, Eye scanning etc..,) if government wants to sniff any citizens they take informations from any of the Government databases and install packages to record screen, enable microphones, camera, all other activities. McAfee antivirus gives protection as well for this Government databases hack also for citizens, so it's good to install McAfee antivirus products on your devices.
