Government surveillance of Internet users increasing each year

A new report from search giant Google has revealed how many times governments and courts have asked it to hand over information about users.

The annual transparency report shows that in 2014, 35,365 requests were made, and 40,677 were made in 2015.

Unsurprisingly, the USA made the most requests, 79% of all the governments that have requested information about citizens. You can see the statistics here.
