Requests to Google from Governments and courts around the world for information on users has doubled in the last three years, the tech giant reported Thursday.

There were just under 25,900 requests in the first six month of the year — which affected some 42,500 user accounts — compared to 13,424 inquiries in the first half of 2010.

The numbers were published in Google’s Transparency Report, which the company issues twice a year.

The most requests during the first half of 2013 came from the United States, followed by India, Germany, France, Britain and Brazil.
