Transparency Report: Second Half of 2018

April 18, 2019

We share our Transparency Report twice a year to provide visibility into how we respond to government requests about our members or the content they share.

As this report shows, the number of government requests for data about LinkedIn members continues to grow as our overall membership grows. As always, we continue to review each request carefully before taking any action, and we continue to notify affected members whenever the law allows it.

In our last report we expanded the categories to include government requests for LinkedIn to remove content shared by members, as well as claims of copyright infringement.  We’re evaluating additional ways we can expand our transparency reporting, and collaborating with other companies and groups on shared transparency goals, like those outlined in the Santa Clara Principles. We support these industry initiatives and we’re working hard to provide the right information and tools for our members.
