Google has just released its biannual transparency report
disclosing the number of requests governments send for users' private data. In the first six months of this year, the search engine giant
received 48,941 requests for data while 83,345 accounts were specified in those requests. That has broken the record for the most Google user data requests
in a six month period. The company complied with 65 percent of the requests, meaning over 54,000 accounts were impacted.
