Yesterday, we announced three important new steps our company is taking to protect customer data:

· Expanding encryption across services.

· Reinforcing the legal protections for customer data.

· Enhancing the transparency of code, making it easier for governments to reassure themselves that products do not contain backdoors.

As a company we are committed to delivering the security, privacy and reliability that helps customers feel confident in their computing experience.
