What to do… 😥 Blocking Instagram, Twitter and other networks, how to pay for purchases in online stores (on Aliexpress, for example), analogues of foreign services

What to do 2022World peace!

To be honest, I didn’t want to touch on the main subject of February-March 2022. on the blog pages… (who would have thought that the usual life could change so drastically…).

However, the latest measures of some foreign services and companies – one way or another force them to take certain measures (and there are a lot of questions …).

In order not to produce dozens of similar topics, I decided to write a note, in which I will collect all the most popular typical questions about the current situation (what to do and how to be… 😥). I will do it right away an observation: this is not a call or a recommendation to action, as they say – “think for yourself / decide for yourself …” (I will write a note in the form of my actions … ).

So…

The age-old question: “what to do?”

Important

  1. bought medicationsthat are periodically needed;
  2. order MIR card (for some reason 2 Visa cards do not work for me, not only in foreign online stores, but even in ours…);
  3. checked that there was fund reserve during six months (because work has already started to “stress”…)and distributes them between 3 cards from different banks (so that at least one of them can pay);
  4. found my huawei phonewhich does not have Google services (like 👀), and prepared it… If there are any sanctions in this regard, then I will pass;
  5. rechecked work📌VPN (in case of unavailability of some resources // about.: not only Twitter or Instagram not working, but also other more necessary resources…). Also updated 📌TOR and Epic browsers;
  6. I also checked if the 📌Yandex browser works on my system (may be useful, since it supports ascending certificates).
Instagram everything?

Safeguards, reserves

    Settings – About phone – System updates – Auto update – Off.
    Google Play – Calling the context menu in the left edge of the screen – Settings – “Automatic application update” tab – “Never” mode.).

    Installed 📌second Linux operating system;

  2. makes a mirror copy 📌 of the disk with the operating system and documents;
  3. downloaded a photo archive from Google Photo (just in case…);
  4. makes a copy of files from other Google services (Keep, Gmail, Drive);
  5. replaced Dropbox and OneDrive with 📌 Yandex Drive;
  6. canceled several subscriptions to Western services (Netflix, for example). Although, probably, they would have pushed me away themselves, because. card payments not working…

A few words about shopping, cards

  1. for pay by phone (additional measure for cards) – installed 📌MIR Pay (however, the application is not unique, it did not work on the second device…);
  2. for shopping on AliExpress today, instead of Visa and Mastercard (which do not work with foreign stores), you can use 📌Yu-mani and 📌Qiwi (I checked the other day, the payment seems to have been made, let’s see if the order is cancelled…). By the way, about a week ago the 📌WebMoney payment was working, but now it has “disappeared”…;
    Yumani and Kiwi work

    Yu-mani and Qiwi are working (for now…)

  3. instead of AliExpress (by the way) – Chinese products (partially) can be ordered in Russian. 📌Ozon and Wildberries stores;
  4. if you use megaphone – you can try to set up the 📌payment for purchases via Google Play from your phone account (it didn’t work on my Samsung this way…);
    Pay by megaphone

    Pay by megaphone

  5. soon (based on the news) banks plan to start issuing cards “Mir” – “Union Salary” – may just be suitable for shopping in foreign online stores (in the same AliExpress).
