Apr 12, 2016

Uber has given up data on more than 12 million users at the request of U.S. agencies and regulators, the company said Tuesday in its first transparency report.

The ride-sharing company said it provided information on trips, trip requests, pickup and drop-off areas, fares, vehicles, and drivers between July and December 2015. Data from more than 12 million riders and drivers was given to various U.S. regulators and information from 469 users went to state and federal law agencies, Reuters reports.

"A large number" of law enforcement requests were related to fraud investigations or the use of stolen credit cards, according to Uber.
