Apple has announced to unveil a web portal for processing and tracking requests from law enforcement officers across the globe for users' data. "By the end of 2018, we will begin the launch of an online portal for authenticated law enforcement officers globally to submit lawful requests for data, track requests, and obtain responsive data from Apple," the Cupertino-based iPhone maker informed on its website late on Thursday.

The $1 trillion company is building a team of professionals dedicated to training law enforcement officers globally. "It will significantly increase our ability to reach smaller police forces and agencies. This will include the development of an online training module for officers," said Apple. In the July-December 2017 period, the governments around the world sent requests for device information on 29,718 Apple devices, with India asking for 27 device requests.

Overall, the data was provided in 79 percent of cases, Apple said in its bi-annual transparency report that came out in May this year. In the case of India, the data was provided in 14 out of 27 requests (52 percent). The governments and private parties around the world also requested information on 3,358 Apple accounts and data was provided in 82 percent of cases.

"Examples of such requests are where law enforcement agencies are working on behalf of customers who have requested assistance locating lost or stolen devices. "Additionally, Apple regularly receives multi-device requests related to fraud investigations. Device-based requests generally seek details of customers associated with devices or device connections to Apple services," the Cupertino-based company said.

The tech giant said that starting with the period July 1-December 31, 2018, it will "report on government requests to take down Apps from the App Store in instances related to alleged violations of legal and/or policy provisions".
