The decision comes in response to a warning by Lithuania's National Cyber Security Center earlier in the day about the risk D-Link WiFi equipment poses as it uses Russian technology.

Topo Centras said shopper who bought such routers can return them to the shops and get refunds if they have receipts.

The chain has 37 stores in 25 Lithuanian cities.

Lithuanian Vice Minister of National Defense told the lrt.lt news website the equipment of tested routers was produced for the Russian market and probably does not meet EU data protection regulations.

The State Data Protection Inspectorate has launched its separate investigation into D-Link devices.
