Microsoft said Thursday it received 75,378 law enforcement requests for data in 2012 in the tech giant's first report on the sensitive subject.
The requests, which included those for the Skype messaging and voice service, potentially impacted 137,424 accounts, Microsoft said on its corporate citizenship Web page.
The disclosure is similar to a "transparency report" which Google started in 2010.
Microsoft said that "customer content" was released in just 2.1 percent of cases, representing 1,558 requests.
