SpiderOak is a cloud backup service with a warrant canary: a formal statement that assured users that the company and its operators had never been made to secretly cooperate with the government, law enforcement or other surveilling authority. The canary reportedly disappeared this weekend, then reappeared, along with a statement saying it was being replaced by a "transparency report."

Don't be mad at the company! The canary worked exactly as it was supposed to.

The official Canary Watch is no longer maintained but what now happened on SpiderOak also happened on Reddit 2 years ago.
