Government authorities in the United States showed an increased interest in Google account holders in the first half of 2011, according to a report released Tuesday by the search giant. The report showed that 5,950 requests for information were made by U.S. government authorities during the first six months of this year, compared with 4,601 requests during the last six months of last year -- an increase of 29 percent. "The number of requests we receive for user account information as part of criminal investigations has increased year after year," the report explained.

Many web users do not recognize the importance of privacy and security, a problem destined to become much worse before it gets better.
