What “blanket request” means?

I read this a few minutes ago, from Mark Zuckerberg, but I don't understand that phrase:

"We have never received a blanket request or court order from any government agency asking for information or metadata in bulk, like the one Verizon reportedly received"

What "blanket request" means?

Thank you =)

  • A blanket request means a request for a very large number of items rather than one specific item. So he's saying no govt agency has asked for lets say information on everything between 2001 and 2005.

  • a blanket- it covers all of you-

    give us everything you have
