Financial Identifier Requests

Financial Identifier requests are based on financial identifiers such as credit/debit card or iTunes Gift Card. Financial Identifier requests generally seek information regarding suspected fraudulent transactions - for example, law enforcement investigations on behalf of customers in which a credit card was fraudulently used to purchase Apple products or services. Apple began reporting on Financial Identifier requests in Transparency Report Period July 1 - December 31, 2016.
