Yahoo Discloses Some Government Data Request Information

Yahoo disclosed on Monday the approximate number of data requests it received between December of last year and May 31, two days after Facebook and Microsoft made similar disclosures. Yahoo said it received between 12,000 and 13,000 requests during that period, including state, local and FISA requests. Apple released similar data earlier Monday morning. Yahoo will also begin to release a transparency report with regard to government requests for data, which companies like Google and Microsoft already do.
