Microsoft has seen a rise in the number of accounts affected by secret government demands, according to its latest transparency report. But the number of overall number of demands filed by world law enforcement and intelligence agencies declined during the last six-month reporting period.
The latest report from the tech giant, which covers the first half of this year ending June, revealed an 8 percent decrease in requests for customer data from global law enforcement and intelligence agencies.
In total, the company received 35,572 demands for data from law enforcement agencies, affecting 38,366 accounts across the world.
