Google releases a biannual transparency report disclosing the number of requests governments send for users’ private data.
In the first six months of this year, Google received 48,941 requests for data. Within those requests, 83,345 accounts were specifically requested.
The most requests Google has ever received in a six month period were for the first half of 2017.
Google complied with 65 percent of the requests, meaning over 54,000 accounts had their data shared.
Of course, these are just the official numbers Google is releasing. The National Security Agency (NSA) collected 151 million phone records from Americans in 2o16, and their bulk collection programs like PRISM may well be tracking just about everything Americans do on the internet.
