Digital or electronic authoritarianism is the use of digital communications by the authorities and adaptation to the changes they inevitably bring. It allows authoritarian regimes and rulers to solve a number of important tasks. It acts as an element of internal and external legitimation, as a mechanism for monitoring of public sentiment and a tool for increasing investment attractiveness. Digital authoritarianism and declining Internet freedom are becoming a global trend. One of the slogans under which this decline occurs is the slogan of strengthening information security and preserving traditional values from destructive external influence. Digital or electronic authoritarianism will continue to develop in both democratic and non-democratic states. The problem requires further comprehensive research in connection with the development of artificial intelligence and “big data”.
