 The United States gathered telephone records last year to double public concerns about potential government intervention.


According to the Reuters in May 5th, the United States tried to limit a large collection of these records through a law in 2015, but after that, the number of telephone records collected by the intelligence agency has increased dramatically on the basis of a new surveillance system for second years. Although the 2017 U.S. National Security Agency collected telephone records far from the 2013 figures that Snowden disclosed - NSA collection of billions of calls a day, the rise in the number of call records still raises questions about the potential intervention of the government and the impact of life. Privacy activists say the overall growth of monitoring has been confusing and worrying in the years since Snowdens disclosure. The transparency of intelligence agencies has not yet been expanded to explain the sharp increase in the number of collections, said Robin Green, a policy consultant at the open technology institute in Washington. A spokesman for the state intelligence directors office, which released the annual report, said in a statement that the government did not change the way it uses power to obtain detailed telephone records. The spokesperson said NSA found that some factors could affect the changes in the collection of records, including the objects approved by the court, possibly the number of the telephone numbers of the respondents or the historical information retained by the telephone service providers. He said the figure is expected to fluctuate every year. Also, US intelligence officials have said that the number of records collected may also include multiple calls or calls from the same phone number and duplicate records. The report also shows that, in addition to local citizens in the United States, people outside the United States are also the target of the 702nd article of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (ForeignIntelligencesurveillanceAct), and the number increased from 106469 in 2016 to 129080 in 2017, up from 89138 in 2013 and a cumulative increase of about 45% in five years. The US intelligence agency believes the 702nd section of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act is an important tool for the protection of national security, but privacy advocates believe that the program collects American communication records with the number of unknowable.
