EFF Report Reveals The Most Trustworthy Tech Companies

According Edward Snowden recent reports, tech companies have a great deal of our data in their hands and government wants as much of it as possible--and has been too successful.

There’s just nothing much a company can do when the NSA comes knocking with a warrant, but there is a spectrum of cooperation, protection, and advocacy that various companies employ.

According to HotHardWare, The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has created a list of many tech companies and charted out a star rating system with six categories: 
  1. Requires a warrant for content
  2. Tells users about government data requests
  3. Publishes transparency reports
  4. Publishes law enforcement guidelines
  5. Fights for users’ privacy rights in courts
  6. Fights for users’ privacy rights in Congress
The results are intriguing. There were several six-star companies, and it’s good to see that some major names are on that list including Apple, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Twitter, and Yahoo. Credo Mobile, Dropbox, and Sonic.net also had six stars. 

The report noted that Apple and Yahoo in particular have dramatically improved in these regards since last year.
