The EFF recently released a report ranking 18 top tech firms on how well they protect users’ personal data from the government when it comes knocking in search of private information. Top performers include Twitter, Google and Dropbox while Verizon, AT&T and Apple were found to be among the worst when it comes to protecting your data.

The report says the Verizon, AT&T, and Apple don’t require a warrant before handing over your data, and they don’t even have to inform you that your private data has been given to the government. They also do not publish transparency reports and law enforcement guidelines, or fight for users’ privacy rights in court.

While Apple and AT&T do address congress regarding their user’s privacy rights, Verizon can’t be bother to do even that much.

The EFF’s full report can be read here.
