New Delhi: In another string of exposure related to US surveillance programme, it has been disclosed that US’ National Security Agency and FBI were using Facebook, Google, Yahoo, YouTube, Microsoft and many other US-based companies to get access to user data.

The disclosure is a part of many leaks in NSA documents provided by Edward Snowden to the Guardian.

As reported, the US government has paid a huge amount to these companies. However, technology companies had earlier completely denied any association with NSA or FBI.
