Apple’s court filing reveals that the company wants more transparency in the government’s process of acquiring personal information about the user

According to Apple Balla, Apple unveils a court filing, which states that different US government agencies requested the tech giant to provide them with user information, and requests the organizations to be more transparent in their works.

Apple’s request opposes to the regulations of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA Court), where the agency is not enabled to release the aggregate number of demands for the sake of national security.

Apple as well as other technological companies is constrained by the protocol, ultimately forces them to reveal the range of the demands, rather than the exact numbers.

Among other major technological companies, Dropbox has filed for more transparency. However, the US government hasn’t made any comment on the issue.
