The world’s second-biggest mobile phone company Vodafone revealed government agencies in six unidentified countries use its network to listen to and record customers’ calls, showing the scale of telecom eavesdropping around the world. The company did not name the six for legal reasons. But Vodafone, which has 400 million customers in countries across Europe, Africa and Asia, said in its “Disclosure Report” on Friday that countries in its reach are using similar practices. While most governments needed legal notices to tap into customers’ communications, there were six countries where that was not the case, it said.
