Alphabet, the multinational parent of Google and Google subsidiaries, was created through a restructuring at Google in 2015. Largely owing to Google’s success and YouTube’s rapid growth, Alphabet is the world’s leader in digital ad revenue and cracked the Fortune 500’s top 10 for the first time in 2020, with some $183 billion in revenue and more than $40 billion in profits. In recent years, Alphabet and other tech giants have come under regulatory scrutiny in the U.S. and abroad for possible breaches in user data privacy and security. As of 2021 Alphabet still faces federal and state antitrust lawsuits, pressure from a newly formed employee union, and scrutiny over problematic content disseminated on YouTube.
