Facebook has released its transparency report for the first half of 2019. The report shows government requests for user data rose 16% since the second half of last year. The U.S. filed the most requests and saw its figure jump 23% overall, while 66% of those requests came with nondisclosure orders. "As we have said in prior reports, we always scrutinize every government request we receive for account data to make sure it is legally valid," Facebook Vice President and Deputy General Counsel Chris Sonderby wrote in a blog post, adding Facebook does not provide "back doors" for governments. Meanwhile, CNN reports Facebook dealt with a bug that accessed iPhone cameras as users scrolled their Facebook news feeds.
