Government Requests

Over 1 billion people globally visit Yahoo for daily habits like email, photo sharing, news and sports. Like other technology companies, we regularly receive requests from governments around the world to disclose certain user data or remove content.

Our users deserve to know as much as possible about the requests we receive, and we want to provide as much information as lawfully permitted. That is why we’ve committed to sharing a transparency report and updating it twice a year.

Removal requests

Users First. Always.

Our users enlighten and inform everything we do, including how we approach government activities that impact them. Our commitment to and concern for your privacy, security and freedom are expressed in our users first approach to these activities.

You trust and rely on us to deliver beautiful and personalized products that make your daily habits inspiring and entertaining. We work hard to protect your data and right to free expression when you use those products.
