Microsoft Reportedly Provided US Agencies with Access to Indian Users' Bank Data

Microsoft has shared the financial data of a number of Indian customers with intelligence agencies in the United States, according to a report from

As the email provider for banks who have migrated to Office 365, Microsoft obtained access to data belonging to Indian customers which was then shared US law enforcement based on warrants.

While Microsoft providing authorities with information on customers isn’t a new thing when a court order is issued, the cited source says “customers weren’t aware that their personal details were compromised,” while Indian banks operating their information knew this was happening.

The problem resides in the migration to Microsoft’s cloud-based platform without customers being informed of the new terms, which basically require the software giant to share.
