On the EFF’s ranking scale, Apple received five out of five stars, as did Dropbox. Google, however, received three stars out of five, while Facebook received four stars. For its ranking to increase, the EFF says that Google needs to be better about informing users about requests for their data and needs to provide more transparency into its data retention policies. Other companies that earned five stars are Adobe, CREDO, Sonic, Wickr, Wikimedia, WordPress.com, and Yahoo. AT&T earned just one out of five stars, while Verizon earned two.
