Yahoo Transparency Report Update


This latest transparency report contains information covering the first six months of this year (January 1 to June 30, 2014). This includes National Security Letters (NSLs) and criminal data requests (such as search warrants, court orders, and subpoenas issued in criminal investigations). FISA requests included are from July 1 – December 31, 2013, as they are subject to a six-month delay imposed by the U.S. Government.

At Yahoo, our users always come first. We evaluate any government request from a users first approach by:

  • Narrowly interpreting government requests to minimize disclosure of user data
  • Contesting requests we believe may violate a user’s human rights, including rights to privacy or free expression
  • Publishing a transparency report to promote accountability and transparency
