UK police outdoes USA's NSA accessing people's personal information every two minutes

 

In the United Kingdom, police request access to personal metadata every two minutes. 

A report from Big Brother Watch says that there were 733,237 such requests made between 2012 and 2014. In a nutshell, police officers want to know "the who, where and when" of a text, email, phone call or web search" roughly every two minutes.

As many as 93 percent of such police requests are approved. The number of data requests peaked in 2014 with 250,000 requests in total.
