Transparency Report about Government Requests for Member Data: First Half of 2017
November 13, 2017
LinkedIn’s transparency report was updated today to include government requests for member data from the first half of 2017. For the sixth consecutive reporting period, there was an increase in both the number of requests received (207), and in the number of accounts subject to those requests (614), a trend we continue to watch closely.
We are committed to maintaining an open and honest dialogue with our members, and the general public, by providing visibility into how and when governments ask us for data.
