Uber Reports Massive Increase in User Data Requests by the Government

The Infinite Brief
Uber says the number of legal demands for riders’ data made by U.S. and Canadian authorities has risen sharply in the past year.

The ride-hailing company said the number of law enforcement demands for user data during 2018 are up 27% on the year earlier, according to its annual transparency report.

Uber said the rise in demands was partly due to its business growing in size, but also a “rising interest” from governments to access data on its customers.
