Requests on Google up by 120%

Google updated its Transparency Report with new data on government requests. In the updated report, Google says that requests from government for user information are up 120 percent since it first started publishing the data back in 2009.

Like other technology and communications companies, Google regularly receives requests from governments and courts around the world to hand over user data. In this report, Google discloses the number of requests they receive from each government in six-month periods with certain limitations. Usage of their services has increased every year, and so have the user data request numbers.
