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."
We just released our most recent transparency report, available at https://t.co/c09TN6WC6I. This will replace our #warrantcanary. The final version of the canary is available at https://t.co/VPzkLXDkWh. The transparency report will be updated every six months.

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